Sunshine Coast charity, The Compass Institute Inc. has received a $3,220 boost to support their important work with people with intellectual and/or physical disabilities, thanks to funds raised from Heritage Bank’s much-loved annual calendar.
Each year since 1982, Heritage has chosen a prominent Queensland house to feature on its annual calendar to help celebrate excellence in local architecture. Members and community members can obtain a copy of the calendar for a gold coin donation, with the proceeds then donated to a number of charities around southern Queensland and New South Wales.
Heritage’s Bank was delighted to present the cheque to representatives from Compass Institute Inc. at its Maroochydore branch.
John Trace, Heritage Bank Maroochydore Branch Manager, said, “It’s really rewarding to know that thanks to the support of everyone who purchased a calendar, we have been able to support Compass to continue their incredible work with some of our community’s most vulnerable.
“They provide a wide range of support for people with intellectual and physical disabilities including educational programs, skills-based training, social enterprise opportunities and more.
“Together, we are making a positive impact in the community and putting people first, which is what Heritage is all about.”
Head of Business and Growth, Sandra Brodie, from The Compass Institute Inc. said, “Thank you so much to Heritage Bank who made Compass one of their beneficiaries of the 2022 and raised $3,220 on our behalf!.
“We could not be more grateful for their generosity and continued support to help us have a bigger impact on the families and communities that we serve.”
