Singleton's tradies have now had to cancel their annual Christmas get together for a second year in a row due to COVID-19.
But fortunately the organisers of the popular event Link Upward Building have continued to raise much needed funds for a local charity.
Link Upward and his wife Jamie have donated $5000 this year to support 'OnTrack Hunter.
The charity coordinate activities and environments where disengaged youth can be exposed to careers, interests, hobbies and life skills to give them a sense of direction before they take the other path.
Jamie Upward said as we could not run the normal function I would like to give as much exposure as possible to OnTrack Hunter as they do such an important role with the youth in Singleton.
To date the Tradies Christmas Charity event has raised $63 500 (inclusive of 2021) for local charities. A highlight of the party are the trade skills competitions which test the skills of both young and old tradies and would-be tradies. Get training for 2022.
