|What is the Michael Manion Wool Industry Foundation? |
The foundation was established in 2015 as a reach-out support service for rural families or children in need.
Michael was a larger than life, gregarious person who had much empathy for people.
During his lifetime in the wool industry he always went out of his way to mentor and help young people in the trade.
We really want to make a big impact raising funds for the rural community.
People on the land can find it tough at times – they’re at the mercy of the gods and sometimes children suffer because of it.
This foundation is here to support rural families in need due to the likes of illness or accidents.
