Our Progress

Launching new website

18th December 2012 Published

Keep an eye out for our new logo and website to be launched shortly.  We have simplified our logo and our new website is clean and crisp.  This is to coincide with the launch of our Fun Run Website.  It is very exciting and a lot of hard work has gone in behind the scenes and hopefully we will be rewarded from our efforts!  Here is a sneak peek of the new logos for HKLN and the Fun Run.

St George Races

2nd November 2012 Published

An initiative of Stephen Ferguson from Brisbane Racing Club, the inaugural St George City to the Bush Race Day was a winning combination for many. 100 guests from Brisbane were flown out to St George courtesy of Channel 7, Nova FM, Avmin, Salva Resources, Coca Cola and Brisbane Racing who were major sponsors of the day. Over 1000 people attended the Race Day in beautiful sunshine and had a ball. We had a great reception to our   launch of Help Kids Like Nick, as St George is also Nick Blacket’s home town.

The day was made even better with news that Help Kids Like Nick will receive $3251.40 as one of five beneficiaries of the day.

Help Kids Like Nick at St George Race Day

24th July 2012 Published

What a fantastic day to launch Help Kids Like Nick…..Our DGR approval came through from the ATO the day before the race day (after a incredibly speedy turnaround time),  St George could not have put on better weather – arguably the best winter day we have had and a record-breaking crowd at the annual race day!

Brisbane Racing organised 100 business people to fly to St George for the Race Day.  Avmin organised the logistics of this in a superb fashion and made the day run seamlessly and Channel 7′s Queensland Weekender were there filming the day.  All these things combined made it an ideal day to introduce our newly established Charity especially being at Nick’s hometown St.George.  Walking around handing out brochures and selling raffle tickets, it was lovely to see the local reaction to our poster boy Nick Blacket.

Alison Blacket (Nick’s mum) made a great speech welcoming the Brisbane crew to Riversands Winery as well as launching Help Kids Like Nick.  Here are some photos of the race day which was well supported by our family members and board members.  Thanks to all for organising such a successful day.

We have to make a special mention to Rob Hanson at Myers Badges and Dies for his generosity.   After a last minute request to produce a banner for HKLN, Rob completed our order in less than 24 hours (also during an extremely busy time for them) and supplied us with the striking and eye-catching banner that we took to St George for the Raceday.  He also donated the banner costs which was unexpected and very much appreciated by us all.  So a big thanks to Rob and his staff for fitting us in as well as your kind donation.
