Each year the profits from the show are donated to the local community. Over the years donations have been made to St John’s Ambulance, Hawkesbury Rural Fire Service, CF NSW and Hawkesbury Hospital Auxiliary. Each year one worthwhile cause is selected as the major recipient. They will receive the majority of the available funds with the balance shared between other groups.
This year the major recipient will be the Friends of Australiana Pioneer Village. The village is being resurrected after being closed for 10 years. It is recognised as an important heritage site as all the buildings there are original structures from the local area.
The Hawkesbury Model & Hobby Show is pleased to be working with the Village and to help in a small way the preservation of such an important place.
