Eight community organisations can fund important projects like providing beds for the homeless, mental health support for military and first responder personnel and a comfortable home away from home for those in palliative care after receiving generous grants from Heritage Bank’s annual Charity Golf Day.
The deserving community organisations received a share of more than $60,000 at a presentation event held at Heritage’s Toowoomba Head Office, following the fundraiser in December at City Golf Club.
More than 130 inspirational grass-roots community beneficiaries have shared in over $1 million distributed over the 25-year history of the event.
Heritage Bank CEO Peter Lock said: “Our Charity Golf Day has run annually for 25 years and supported some incredible community-focused organisations making a positive impact.
“I’m proud that we are supporting groups from across our heartland in southern Queensland and also Men in Action in Sydney, where we have recently expanded with three branches to compliment the work with do with New South Wales-based mortgage brokers.
“We’re passionate about making contributions to the communities in which we operate and it is an honour to support the inspirational work being undertaken by our beneficiary organisations this year.
“I would like to thank all of our amazing event sponsors, volunteers and participants in contributing to our latest golf day and allowing us to support these remarkable organisations.”
