We have a strong tradition of supporting the local community in which we live and work through sponsorship of a number of events and activities held throughout the year.
2015 Charity of Choice Details
We select a charity annually that we support each year by having a gold coin collection at each of our monthly free dress days. Our charity of choice this year is the Kids with Cancer Foundation Australia.
Kids with Cancer Foundation Australia is a non profit organisation that receives donations for families who are struggling financially, and have a child in one of the Australian children’s hospitals being treated for a brain tumor, leukemia and other childhood cancers. Cancer treatments are not cheap and can cripple a family’s available income over a child’s treatment period, which can last from months to years.
