Trekker draws on energy



COME June, Country Energy employee Mick Malone will be swapping powerlines for Papua New Guinea as he hikes the Kokoda Track to help raise money for the Grafton Base Hospital and Grafton Ambulance.

And to support the cause, Country Energy has got behind him to donate $1000 ? around $10 for each kilometre of the track.

Manager of community rela- tions for Country Energy Mike Hely said the company was donating the money to help get behind the worthwhile community cause.

"We thought it was a great cause and something good to get involved in," he said.

"There's quite a group involved ... and so we got behind Mick because off his own back he's decided to do something to help the local community."
