  • Game on for this year’s LATMA Charity Golf Day

    It’s game on for members of the Label and Tag Manufacturers Association of Australia (LATMA), with the association set to hold its Annual Charity Golf Day on Thursday 17 October in Sydney.

    Proceeds from this Annual Charity Golf Day go to The TY Nelson Department of Neurology in The Children’s Hospital at Westmead which diagnoses and treat many patients each year with what can be life-threatening illnesses such as epilepsy, paralysis and encephalitis.

    In particular, the funds raised by LATMA are used in the research and clinical work of the neurology team to better understand and treat these diseases.

    Dr Deepak Gill from Westmead will speak at the dinner at Carnarvon Golf Club on the evening of 17 October, presenting the latest work of the neurology department plus be assisted by a young man who has undergone successful brain surgery to treat his epilepsy.

    LATMA says it would love to see everybody there and reminds its members that there are only a limited number of carts, so although people can reserve one, it’s not set in concrete until payment is made.

    The LATMA Charity Golf Day is being held at Carnarvon Golf Club, Lidcombe NSW on Thursday 17 October. As always, guests can organise their own ‘Awesome Foursome’ team, or they can be slotted into a group by the organisers.

  • Bruce and Peter bash the bush on behalf of the kids

    Ten days and over 4,000 kilometres of outback roads in a 1967 HR Holden will have printing industry notables Bruce Peddlesden, On-Demand, Victoria and Peter Benjamin, Discus, WA, eating dust to raise money for Variety Children’s Charity in the 22nd  Bush Bash.

    Following up on their magnificent effort last year when the pair, accompanied by Phil Rennell from Currie Group, completed the Tour de Tasmania, this year sees them bashing their way from the Goulburn Valley, Victoria, through four states via Birdsville and Broken Hill to make landfall near Hamilton Island in north east Queensland. This time around they are looking at beating their charity raising record of over $30,000 last year.

    Undaunted by the distance to travel and the age of their trusty automobile, the two have absolute faith in the reliability of the old Holden, Number 15.

    “She’s been around the clock a couple of times. But she’ll make it, no worries,” said Benjamin, who’ll be doing all the driving this time around while Peddlesden handles the navigation. Reflecting on the motivation that drives the pair he says, “It’s a way I can give back to the community and help Australia’s future development after it has been good to me and my businesses, and have a bit of fun while doing it. I love travel and driving, I’ve driven across the Nullarbor more than 20 times, many with Bruce. I don’t see the driving as a problem, it’s the navigating I’m worrying about,” he laughed.

    The two boyhood friends and now business partners on either side of the country, Melbourne and Perth, are determined to raise as much money for Variety as possible. “I want the industry to get behind us with sponsorship, every little helps,” said Peddlesden. (pictured with the trusty #15)

    The bash kicks off in Shepparton on Thursday August 23 and ends on Airlie Beach on Friday August 31.
