Cabonne Council has agreed to provide $2000 in assistance to the 2024 Cargo to Grenfell Fundraising Walking event. The walk has been running annually for seven years. "The event was developed to bring together people from surrounding regions to raise funds for mental health resources for remote towns through the facilitation of programs and workshops," Cabonne Council general manager Bradley Byrnes told this months council meeting. "Organisers hope to continue to raise the profile of Cabonne Council by bringing funds from participants from outside the council area, and educating participants about the life, culture and values of country towns in the area." The walk will take place from the March 14-16 2024 leaving from Cargo before making its way to Canowindra for an overnight stay before moving on to Gooloogong for another overnight stay and then finishing in Grenfell. Approximately 100 people are expected to participate. Other community groups involved include local Lions Club and Rotary Club, and funds will be used for the hiring of traffic control personnel. The event organisers had asked council for $5000.
