Community Involvement

 

Being involved in our local community and giving back are a strong part of our culture and our philosophy of Achieving Goals Together.  
Below are some of the community activities we currently support.

Sidney Nolan Ned Kelly Series Exhibition at MAMA

 

We are very excited to be sponsoring the upcoming exhibition of Sidney Nolan's iconic Ned Kelly Series at Murray Art Museum Albury (MAMA).

It has been 15 years since the National Gallery of Australia has toured its Sidney Nolan's 'Ned Kelly' series of paintings in its entirety. During its exclusive tour of only four galleries nationally, MAMA is the exclusive NSW gallery to host this exhibition during this tour. This is a unique and special time for the Australian community to be able to visit and experience the wonderful paintings by such an iconic Australian painter.

Sidney Nolan's Ned Kelly series is a National Gallery of Australia exhibition.

 2018 Lake Hume Cycle Challenge

 Johnsons MME proudly supported the Lake Hume Cycle Challenge as part of a three-year commitment to the event starting in 2016. It's a great event for our community and one that we have been delighted to be involved with.  

For the past five years, the Wellness Centre within the Albury Wodonga Regional Cancer Centre (AWRCC) has been the beneficiary of the Lake Hume Cycle Challenge. Over that time more than $100,000 has been donated to this 100% local cause as a result of this event. 

The Wellness centre is again the main beneficiary of the 2018 event. The AWRCC houses the most modern cancer treatment facilities of the day; it unites cancer services under one roof offering a place to educate, support, research and treat all forms of cancer

Johnsons MME would like to congratulate the Rotary Club of Bellbridge - Lake Hume for their vision and efforts in organising such a well run and exceptional local cycling event. We look forward to working with the Club, local councils and other sponsors to ensure the event goes from strength to strength.
