The Upper Lachlan Foundation is proud to partner with local family-owned Crookwell business Lindner Socks. Business owner Andrew Lindner explains:
"In a small country town, it takes a few generations to be accepted as a true local, but since moving the family sock manufacturing business to Crookwell in 1997 we have been made welcome and we feel that we are a part of this wonderful country community. The locals have helped us in so many ways.
The Crookwell community has a unique capacity for assisting those in need. With the establishment of the Upper Lachlan Foundation in 2011, community groups and organisations have access to an income stream to fund projects that benefit the wider community, or to simply help people through a tough time.
In an effort to return local support, we are now using traceable merino wool from growers in our region to knit a range of Wool Connect products in the sock factory. A percentage from the sale of any Wool Connect product in the Lindner Socks Crookwell Shop is donated to the Upper Lachlan Foundation. It is our way of saying thanks.
The Upper Lachlan Foundation is Lindner Socks’ chosen charity. We are proud to make regular contributions to such a worthy cause."
