Hugh Bateman's 2600 Km journey in a Pink MF5435 is raising awareness and funds for breast cancer nurses
Mudgee Real Estate Agent and Auctioneer Hugh Bateman is embarking on a 2600 Km journey in a hot pink MF5435, raising awareness and funds for breast cancer nurses.
Breast cancer affects thousands of Australians. This year alone it is expected that some 15000 new cases of breast cancer will be diagnosed – the chances are you may know someone affected by this insidious disease.
Breast care nurses play a vital part in patient care and recovery and require $380,000 to train and employ a Breast Care Nurse over a 3 year period. Hugh is aiming to raise $250,000 that will go directly to funding this important service for patients.
Hugh has received enormous support for his tractor trek. His MF 5435 was given its bright new coat of paint by local Massey Ferguson Dealer Price Farm Machinery and is also receiving support by many local businesses along the journey.
Setting off from Mudgee, Hugh will head south west towards Griffith, then turn towards the coast travelling from Wollongong up to Coffs Harbour before heading back down to Mudgee. Along the way Hugh will call in on prominent real-estate agents and meet with the NSW Premier at Queenscliff and Deputy Premier at the NSW parliament.
