Distributing care packages to young people living on the streets, and encouraging children with autism to play and learn, are just two of the projects made possible thanks to money raised at the 2020 Heritage Bank Charity Golf Day.
The annual Golf Day last December raised a total of almost $65,000 in grants which were presented to eight deserving community organisations at Heritage Bank’s head office in Toowoomba today.
The Heritage Bank Charity Golf Day has been running for 23 years and has raised more than $930,000 for amazing community groups across south-east Queensland during that time.
Reaching the incredible $1 million mark could be achieved at the event later this year, which would be a monumental achievement.
The staggering amount of money raised over the years has helped fund important projects delivered by inspirational grass-roots community organisations, including today’s beneficiaries.
Heritage Bank CEO Peter Lock said: “Given the events of the past year, many charities and community organisations have been doing it tough. It would have been easy enough for us to not hold our Charity Golf Day last year due to COVID, but we pushed on because we know how valuable these contributions are to the recipients.
“Speaking with representatives from the beneficiary organisations, you really see how passionate they are about delivering their projects for their communities.
“It’s inspiring and it’s an honour for Heritage to support these exceptional organisations.
“I’d also like to thank the many sponsors of our golf day for their generosity in being part of the event. I hope they too feel proud to support the great work being done by the beneficiaries.”
