The Foundation recently acquired sponsorship from Personnel Employed at Alcoa Charity Help (PEACH) for new laptops and monitors.
At the height of the pandemic, when having to work from home during lockdowns, our Foundation has struggled due to the lack of laptops available for the staff. With this sponsorship by PEACH, we are now able to purchase laptops for our team members to ensure we do not face this setback again.
Having new laptops will also give our team the ability to be mobile and work with our childhood cancer community in regional spaces. This will offer opportunities for our team to go out to schools and have access to our informational resources at the tip of their fingers.
We are particularly excited about what this funding means for events such as our beloved South West Bike Trek, which PEACH has been supporting for many years. With laptops on hand, our team can do more work from the event as the riders travel through the South West region.
We thank PEACH for their continued support of the Foundation. Founded in 1979, PEACH was inspired by a small group of enthusiastic Pinjarra refinery employees keen to help those in need in their local community. There are now nearly 1,000 people contributing each month, helping to fund so many worth causes.
