Lockwood Primary School students take on the RACV Energy Breakthrough Challenge

All the team at Hazeldenes are behind a group of Grade 6 students from Lockwood Primary School who are currently seeing a years worth of work come to fruition on the track at Maryborough as they participate in the 2015 RACV Energy Breakthrough Challenge.

The entire school community have watched these students grow throughout the year and develop into a really close group, who positively encourage and support each other every single day.

The years work is culminating this weekend in Maryborough where the students will spend 2 nights and three days camping behind the pits at the track as part of the event.  Not only do their vehicles have to pass strict scrutineering process for both design and construction but they students them selves are taking part in a fourteen hour ride during Friday and Saturday.

What an amazing effort from the students and the support crew of teachers and parents involved in the project.

Hazeldene’s presents to Senate Inquiry

Today Hazeldene’s voluntarily presented at the public hearing of a Senate inquiry into the impact of Australia’s temporary work visa programs on the Australian labor market and on temporary work visa holders.  Hazeldene’s welcomed the opportunity to engage with the Federal Government via the Senate Inquiry on such an important component of strengthening and sustaining Australia’s job market.

Contrary to claims by Federal Member for Bendigo, Lisa Chester Hazeldene’s is not increasingly using temporary work visa workers to fill shifts.  Over the last five years Hazeldene’s has experienced substantial growth generating a 50 percent increase in employment with job generation predominantly from the Bendigo and surrounding region.  Hazeldene’s is one of regional Victoria’s largest private employers currently employing 720 people directly and more than 670 contractors.

While we do not use the Seasonal Worker Program we do have seasonal demand for our products and we manage that by engaging local staff on a casual basis over this period. We find that process works well for local job seekers and meets the needs of our operations.

Hazeldene’s also works in partnership with reputable contracting companies who provide locally based contract staff, the majority of whom are local, for a broad range of tasks including plumbing, electrical and equipment maintenance, cleaning, security, equipment hire, chicken boning and packing.

Hazeldene’s is committed to its employees and values the contribution that staff from a broad range of culturally diverse backgrounds makes to the long-term viability of our operation.

Righteous Pups Gala raises $80,000

Saturday Nights Gala Auction Night for Righteous Pups was a huge success, raising more than $80,000 to help train Autism Assistance Dogs for children with high spectrum autism.

Sponsored by Hazeldene’s, WIN and Harley Central Bendigo, the Gala brought out the best in the Bendigo community, with many people digging deep.

“We were ecstatic to achieve such a fantastic result” said Hazeldene’s Brand Manager and event organiser, Michelle Daniel. “Hazeldene’s would particularly like to extend thanks to Adam Poyser of Poyser Motors who was the winning bidder on the Harley Davidson motorbike at $14,250 and promptly donated the bike back into the auction. Poysers effectively made a $14,000 donation to Righteous Pups and that really set the tone of generosity for the night” she said.

Second time around, Steve Robertson was the winning bidder of the Harley Davidson at $14,000, but added a very generous donation when making out his cheque to Righteous Pups.

Dick Hazeldene paid $10,000 to sponsor and name a 7 week old Righteous Puppy who stole hearts, making an appearance on the night.

The audience were enraptured by some very special stories of recipients of Righteous Pups who attended, really showing the difference an assistance dog makes to families living with autism.

John Lingard sang beautifully, and rose to the challenge when WIN’s Scott Hosking offered to make a further donation for another song late in the night.

Founder and Managing Director of Righteous Pups, Joanne Baker was blown away with the result. “We’ve run fundraisers before, but this really took it to a whole new level for us, and we are absolutely thrilled with the result, its just brilliant” she said at the end of the night, almost speechless.

The evening would not have been possible without the donations from many businesses for auction, and the many people who bid at auction. Hazeldene’s and Righteous Pups would like to thank everybody that contributed to the night’s success.
