Worthy Parts Mining Legends Charity Rebuild
October 2019 saw the unveiling of the Worthy Parts Mining Legends charity rebuild project.
A wonderfully well used R2900G Loader donated by Northern Star Resources, Rand Mining and Tribune Resources was rebuilt over a 12 month period through the donation of hundreds of thousands of dollars in goods and services from service provides from around Australia (Mining Legends).
Michael and Jaymi Worthington founded Mining Legends to bring the Worthy Parts Industry Link network together to complete a charity rebuild project to provide support to families within mining communities around Australia when a mining accident or crisis occurs and to further benefit the wider mining community.
KCGM proudly purchased the rebuilt Loader which has been aptly named Michaela – in tribute to Worthy Parts Owner Michael Worthington.
Miners’ Promise is honoured to have been a beneﬁciary of the Mining Legends Rebuild Project that raised close to $1 million for charity. We extend our heartfelt thanks to Michael and Jaymi Worthington, the hard-working Mining Legends Board and to everyone who so generously supported this project.
If you have innovation, imagination and the desire to help others – you too can be one of our fundraising champions.
