Charlie's Gift

  • 27 April 2018

Earlier this year we received a call from 85 year old Charlie Sutton, a retired grazier from Glen Innes who wanted to know more about our foundation as he was interested in making a charitable donation. After hearing MHF runs with only a small team and lots of volunteers to ensure a high percentage of funds goes to research and not administration costs - he generously donated $100,000! 

This is the largest donation by an individual that MHF has ever received. Such a huge donation needed a personal thanks and the Hughes family headed to Glen Innes to meet Charlie in early April. 

Charlie had a great time planned out for us starting with a meal at the Hereford Steakhouse with his friends and family. We also met the Mayor of Glen Innes, enjoyed a tour to see the sights around town and finished our visit with a great cup of tea. 

What an amazing and generous person who has done so much for charity over many years.Thank you Charlie!
