Mantra TNQ goes into bat for foun­da­tion

Port Douglas & Mossman Gazette - - NEWS -

MANTRA Group’s North Queens­land Re­gion took to the pitch to raise $13,000 for the Luke Batty Foun­da­tion, the group’s of­fi­cial char­ity part­ner, at their an­nual cricket day fundraiser.

The do­na­tion, which was pre­sented to the foun­da­tion on the day, will be added to the re­gion’s Cor­po­rate So­cial Re­spon­si­bil­ity con­tri­bu­tion for the year.

Luke Batty Foun­da­tion COO Stewart McMullin who par­tic­i­pated in the cricket day match said he is en­cour­aged and in­spired by Mantra Group’s com­mit­ment to mak­ing a change.

“The foun­da­tion is in­cred­i­bly grate­ful and for­tu­nate to have Mantra Group’s com­mit­ment and ded­i­ca­tion be­hind us,” said Mr McMullin.

“Through com­mu­nity events such as these, ed­u­ca­tion and ad­vo­cacy, we are con­tin­u­ally rais­ing com­mu­nity aware­ness and shift­ing en­trenched at­ti­tudes around fam­ily vi­o­lence.

“How­ever, we still have such a long way to go… the mo­men­tum for change is there and to­gether we are work­ing to cre­ate a safer fu­ture for women and chil­dren.”

Mantra Group Area Man­ager Chris Northam said he is thrilled by the do­na­tion the North Queens­land Re­gion has raised and looks for­ward to sup­port­ing the foun­da­tion again next year.

“This event is our re­gion’s ma­jor an­nual fundrais­ing ini­tia­tive, and I’m de­lighted we were able to con­trib­ute such a large do­na­tion,” said Mr Northam.

“We will con­tinue to show our sup­port to the foun­da­tion and will be back next year for another day on the pitch.”

In FY17, Mantra Group prop­er­ties and team mem­bers have raised more than $100,000 for the Luke Batty Foun­da­tion through events such as the cricket day and staff fundrais­ing ini­tia­tives.

Mantra Group is a proud sup­porter of the Luke Batty Foun­da­tion, as pas­sion­ate ad­vo­cates against fam­ily vi­o­lence.
