Australian High Commission supports Ghana’s C’wlth Games preparations

The Australian High Commission has announced that an amount of Gh¢ 50,000 was raised at the Commonwealth Games Gala Dinner, which welcomed the Queen’s Baton to Ghana on March 19 2017, for the Ghana Olympic Committee and the Azumah Nelson Foundation.

The gala dinner featured four exciting boxing bouts in front of 200 guests under the patronage of Ghanaian Vice-President Dr. Mahamudu Bawumia and legendary Ghanaian boxer Azumah Nelson.

The Australian High Commissioner, Andrew Barnes, has since presented cheques for GH¢25,000 to the GOC and GH¢25,000 to the Azumah Nelson Foundation. These funds will assist both organisations in preparations for the 2018 Gold Coast Commonwealth Games.

The majority of the funds were raised thanks to generous sponsorship from Australian and Ghanaian mining companies: Azumah Resources Limited, Perseus Mining Limited, Resolute Mining Limited, African Mining Services and Geodrill Limited.
