Flowserve backing a great result for hospital

Flowserve is an international manufacturer and service provider of fluid motion control solutions with a world-wide reputation. The foundry and industrial pump specialist, formerly Thompsons Castlemaine, has a part in Castlemaine history going back 145 years. In Castlemaine they operate a significant site and are a great citizen of our community. Several of the Castlemaine Rouleurs team are also employees at Flowserve and it was a game changer to have them back their staff.

Their support, for the second time, as Event Partner of Castlemaine Rouleurs Murray to Moyne relay ride made a stellar contribution to the success of the Rouleurs fundraising!

We are thrilled to say that not only did the team buy two new Vital Signs Monitors, they have also contributed $11,000 to our next equipment fundraising campaign! Watch this space – Appeal 2023 coming soon, thanks for the great kickstart Rouleurs.

The miles covered over the years by this group in support of our hospital is a scary number. Team Captain Gary Bunn has been doing the 520km relay for 25 years.

Sue Race Dhelkaya Health CEO paid tribute to the riders and Event Partner Flowserve.

“I want to congratulate the Castlemaine Rouleurs for the incredible result that they have been able to achieve, and for the dedication of this team over many years. The partnership of Flowserve is to be celebrated, what fantastic citizenship by the company in responding to those who have worked for them to support the hospital in this way.

The equipment funded through the Murray to Moyne fundraising and sponsorships will be used by thousands of people from our community across Mt Alexander and beyond.”

So, let’s salute the team and all their supporters – those who sponsored them, drove buses, made donations, bought a sausage or a raffle ticket, businesses who donated prizes for the raffle and generously partnered the team.

Dhelkaya Health pays tribute to former Flowserve employee and Castlemaine Rouleur Phil Priest who passed away recently. He was still helping the team this year in gaining the support of Flowserve, although he couldn’t ride this time. His sons Ben and Jeremy are a second generation of the Priest family who’ve cycled for the Rouleurs and helped the hospital.

He has made a great impact on our community as a father, husband, friend and team member who cycled and fundraised for 20 years. That’s an extraordinary commitment. Thank you, Phil you’ll be missed.

M2M team riders backed by Flowserve are Gary Bunn, Paul Kent, Bryan Maddern, Brian Payne, Lois Kent and Lee Nicholls
