This week, CLCRF received a generous donation of $12,000 from MSP Engineering and AusGroup (AGC). This was made possible through an incentive scheme run late last year called the Six Week Crunch.
The Six Week Crunch was designed as a way for both companies to keep on track during the busy pre-Christmas period and was run at the CGP2 project for Talison Lithium in Greenbushes.
AGC’s site employees chose CLCRF as the recipient of their donation as a way to do their bit to help children battling cancer. The Six Week Crunch was successfully completed with all targets met safely, meaning both companies were each able to contribute a $6,000 donation.
“This opportunity brought meaning to work beyond just a normal day,” said Peter Davis, AGC’s Project Manager for CGP2. “We had the ability to contribute beyond that and give real meaning by making an impact on people’s lives.”
Andrew Rowe, the CEO of MSP Engineering, said: “We find an initiative like this to be very empowering. It’s a way of mobilising the guys and helping them to do something that’s bigger than themselves and the project.”
Ambassador Georgia Lowry and CEO Andrea Alexander were there to accept the cheque on behalf of the CLCRF and speak about how much these initiatives mean to the Foundation.
Corporate donations like this are so important for helping the foundation continue the ground-breaking research into childhood cancers. As a great way to boost employee morale and give back to the community, it’s something all organisations should consider.
CLCRF would like to sincerely thank both MSP Engineering and AGC and all the employees who made this generous donation possible.
