The ongoing partnership demonstrates the company’s commitment to building positive, lasting relationships within the communities Arc Infrastructure operates.

“While attending the Narrogin Chamber of Commerce meeting, I was impressed by Arc Infrastructure’s presentation on what their future plans are for our town and surrounding areas. I was excited about the opportunity for FarmWorks Narrogin to partner with Arc Infrastructure assisting to boost Narrogin’s local business economy while also fundraising for a great cause. It keeps people shopping local, supporting local families which is a vital part of keeping Narrogin sustainable,” Ashley said.

Farmworks Narrogin Director Ashley Wilkins said his business jumped at the chance to be involved in the unique fundraising opportunity.

“Arc committed to purchasing vouchers across the businesses who in turn increased the voucher amount as part of their own contribution. Soon we had a collection of vouchers worth $1,000. We’ve been overwhelmed with how many fellow local businesses wanted to join in and support the cause.”

“Initially we wanted to make a donation on behalf of the company but we soon realised there were many passionate people in town who also wanted to support Relay for Life so we thought we’d band together to really make a difference,” Mrs Clarke said.

Arc Infrastructure Regional Administration Officer and long-time Narrogin resident Sharon Clarke said the company had originally planned to donate $500 to Relay for Life but instead developed the gift voucher raffle concept to turn that figure into so much more.

Tickets were bought far and wide before a special prize draw saw Narrogin resident Sara Ballard scoop top prize. Sara won the $1,000 voucher collection thanks to the generous support of local businesses including Denman Tech Solutions, Farmworks Narrogin, Ballards of Narrogin, Narrogin Bearings, Parry's of Narrogin, Toyworld Narrogin, Rambling Rose, Bill and Ben’s Hot Bread Shop, Narrogin Country Meats, Narrogin Fresh, Goodlife and Café 27.

The idea to combine donated vouchers into a single prize was the brainchild of Arc’s Narrogin team who wanted to support a colleague affected by cancer. Together they created the novel way to partner with likeminded businesses to not only support the worthy cause but also and keep money in local communities.

The much-needed funds were raised through a community raffle where a $2 ticket gave people the chance to win $1,000 worth of gift vouchers to use at Narrogin’s leading outlets.
