Golden Cow falls short but remains optimistic

Despite a repreive Tongala's Golden Cow centre still faces an uncertain future

February 19, 2014 4:15am

Golden Cow Chief Executive Cath Hughes is optimistic about the centre's future.

The Golden Cow has been given a reprieve after a huge show of support from Tongala business HW Greenham and Sons.

HW Greenham, one of Tongala’s biggest employers, reaffirmed they did not wish to see the Golden Cow close and has provided enough support to keep the centre running for at least 6 more weeks, though an opening date has yet to be confirmed.

HW Greenham has already donated $10000 to the centre and will now help pay staff costs to give the Golden Cow time to raise the funds.

The centre originally had until Sunday to raise $40000 or risked having to close its doors for good.

Chief executive of the Golden Cow Cath Hughes said the offer is incredible.

‘‘The group operations manager at Greenhams has indicated he absolutely does not want to see the centre closed,’’ Mrs Hughes said.

‘‘It’s really positive and encouraging for us while the board considers the best ways to keep the place running.’’

Mrs Hughes said the centre has reached almost 50 per cent of its target and that the show of community support over the weekend was overwhelming.
