The Country Club Staff Community Fund has raised and donated more than $6,000 this year to the comfort and support of cancer patients at the W.P. Holman Clinic. These Donations have included a new treatment chair, event tickets and annual magazine subscriptions for the waiting room to support cancer patients and their families undergoing cancer treatment.
The Country Club Staff Community Fund was established in 2014 by employees as an avenue to raise money to assist local community programs & charities. The fund is run independently from the Country Club business and consists of employees who volunteer their time.
Recently the Staff Community fund decided to permanently focus their fundraising efforts on one charity/organisation. The W.P. Holman Clinic was an easy choice with an overwhelming number of staff members voting for them. The Staff Community fund have had and continue to have employees (and their family members) receiving treatment at the W.P. Holman Clinic and the community group is passionate about supporting the clinic in any way they can going forward.
The staff community fund has undertaken several fund-raising activities over the year to achieve their significant donation. They have also installed a vending machine in the staff canteen and run a ‘tuck shop’ in the administration department at the Country Club with all proceeds going to the Staff Community fund. Country Club has been very supportive of the charity, donating several prizes towards their fundraising activities together with support from Local business who have donated during events run at Country Club (e.g. Success with Attitude).
The Country Club Staff Community Fund looks forward to continuing to provide event tickets, magazine subscriptions for the waiting room and assisting with the purchase of equipment to support patients and staff at the W.P. Holman Clinic.
