Heritage calendar donations lend a paw to RSPCA Qld

Heritage Building Society has lent a paw to RSPCA Qld with a $4,000 cheque to assist the state’s leading animal welfare authority.

Raised through gold coin donations from the 2009 Heritage Building Society Calendar that features the grand residence, Barambah Station, the funds will contribute to providing shelter and care for some 40,000 disadvantaged animals.

“RSPCA Qld has an annual operating budget of $19.2 million; the majority of which is raised from donations from the public and members of the philanthropic community,” said RSPCA Qld spokesperson Ms Andrea Fagg.

“We are incredibly grateful for the support that Heritage has given us, and for their generous donation.”

With a 26 year history, each year the Heritage calendar raises essential funds for local charities while featuring and raising public awareness of Queensland’s architectural heritage.

Heritage CEO Mr John Minz said that Heritage is committed to building local communities throughout south-east Queensland.

“Heritage is proud to assist organisations that supply vital services to south-east Queensland and this donation is just another example of the assistance we give back to the local community,” he said.

RSPCA Major Donor and Corporate Development Officer Diane Baartz, Heritage Public Relations Officer Klara Vida and Heritage Central Regional Sales Manager Dianne White hold Dante, Duke and Dexter at the RSPCA Queensland State Headquarters in Fairfield.
