Some deserving community organisations can now fund important projects after receiving money from the Heritage Bank Charity Golf Day.
A total of $63,500 was distributed to 12 groups from across south-east Queensland at a presentation for grant recipients at Heritage Bank’s head office in Toowoomba on Friday 7 February.
The Heritage Bank Charity Golf Day was held on 6 December 2019 for the 22nd year and has now raised more than $880,000 for some worthy community groups.
Heritage Bank CEO Peter Lock presented representatives from the organisations with their grant and praised the work they do in the community.
“These organisations are providing excellent services to countless members of our communities, many of whom are going through tough times,” Mr Lock said.
“It’s an honour for Heritage to be able to support the great work being done by these wonderful organisations and demonstrates how Heritage is passionate about helping people.
“The Charity Golf Day brings together some community-minded businesses in the numerous event sponsors and Heritage. The day provides a way for us to show our support for the communities in which we operate.
“I love having the chance to present these grants to very deserving beneficiaries each year.”
