Mid North grain growers Craig Simpson and Des Sleep have helped contribute $1000 each to the Jamestown Hospital and Camp Quality after they nominated the charities in a recent Viterra competition.

Craig, of Belalie North, and Des, of Terowie, were two of three winners across the state who nominated a community group to receive one of three $1000 donations.

Viterra’s Operations Manager for the Central region Jack Tansley said the prizes were offered to growers who filled out a planting survey in July to help the bulk handler with its segregations.

The funds for Jamestown Hospital will be put towards community-funded renovations to the hospital’s Luke Verco wing. 

The donation to Camp Quality will go towards its Family Camps program, to help families take a break.
