Our staff frequently volunteer their time to assist with special events, local charities and fundraising. We also support a range of community and charity fundraising initiatives that our staff and members are proud to take part in. Here are some of the ways in which Club Central has been helping the local community:
WE WENT RED FOR RESEARCH
As part of our ongoing support for St George & Sutherland Medical Research Foundation, we went RED for research in June, collecting donations from patrons to go towards life saving medical research in St George & Sutherland Hospitals.
CHOCCY FOR BRAIN CANCER
Chocolate doesn’t count as calories if it’s for a good cause right?! In May for brain cancer awareness month, we raised funds for the Charlie Teo Foundation in memory of several loved ones of Club Central team members who have passed away from brain cancer. We raised over $2000 thanks to everyone buying a sweet Cadbury treat!
WE HAD A HEART TO HEART
In April we matched donations dollar for dollar to go towards the purchase of life saving defibrillators through local charity, Response for Life which was established in memory of loved ones lost to sudden, and often unexplained, cardiac death. It is our hope that no family suffer such an unbearable loss.
CLEAN UP AUSTRALIA DAY
For several years, the Club Central team has taken part in Clean Up Australia Day. In 2021, we selected a local site in Blakehurst and a team of 10 dedicated Club Central volunteers visited for several hours to pick up rubbish to help keep our local area clean.
WE CELEBRATED PINK MONTH
In January 2021, we kicked off the year with PINK month – raising funds for breast cancer charities for the prevention, treatment and the search for a cure. We donated $1 from every glass of Garfish Rose or Angas Sparkling which was donated to Breast Cancer Network Australia as well as PINK BINGO and screening the Domain PINK test.
DANDELION DONATION DRIVE
In October 2020 we collected donations from our members and team for Dandelion Support Network, which provides a range of items to families with babies and children in need of support. Our wonderful Menai receptionist Louise knitted the trauma teddies pictured which were used in care packs for new mums.
