Mantra TNQ goes into bat for foundation
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.
