Supporting Rural Families in Need

See What We’ve done so far….

Who was Michael Manion?

Michael Manion was a larger than life, gregarious person who had an enormous empathy for people.

Michael affectionately carried the nick name “The Legg” and will always be remembered as one of the industry’s great personalities.

MMWIF was established in 2015 as a reach-out support service for rural families or children in need.

Michael’s lifetime passion was the wool industry and everyone involved in it.

Michael Manion passed away on Sunday 27 July 2014, after a short battle with cancer. He was only 61.

Legg always went out of his way to mentor and help young people in the trade.

Michael’s passing inspired his colleagues, peers and mates to ensure that the Legg’s premature end was not for without an ongoing legacy to the greater wool and agricultural industry.

MMWIF runs several fundraising events each year with in the wool industry but welcome any donations from the great farming and Agricultural community.

Take a look at some of the families and fundraising efforts MMWIF has been involved with so far.
