Blayney’s generosity has once again come to the fore with an outstanding amount of money being raised for the Stillbirth Foundation.

When Jonnie and Jacqueline Hoy twin boys Henry and William were born still on February 13, 2017, the couple, former Blayney residents now living in Port Macquarie, have since become ambassadors for Stillbirth Foundation Australia.

Jacqueline’s mother, Cheryl Toohey, said that soon after a decision was made to raise money by participating in the City to Surf.

“The Hoy Angels team has raised $23,236.00 with a good amount of that raised in this area including a $3000 donation from the Blayney Rugby club.

“There are 58 people registered to walk with the team with 17 of them being local to Blayney,” she said.
