Ten Queensland community organisations have this week shared in more than $69,000 in grants thanks to funds raised at Heritage Bank’s 21st annual Charity Golf Day last December.

For the past 21 years, funds raised from the event have been distributed via grants to different community and charity organisations right around southern Queensland. Heritage Bank CEO Peter Lock said the incredible success of the Heritage Charity Golf Day had now pushed total donations to worthy community organisations past $800,000. “Supporting our people and communities is the core of Heritage,” Mr Lock said “It’s something that we are very passionate about and that translates through to the Golf Day. The funds raised go towards helping a huge number of local organisations continue doing their fantastic work in the community. Through the Golf Day, we’re delighted to bring the business community together for a great cause and for the benefit of all.”

This year’s beneficiaries include Blush Cancer Care Inc in Toowoomba, Compass Institute in Palmwoods, Flexi School in Toowoomba, Highfields North Eastern Downs Lions Club, Rosies Friends on the Street at the Gold Coast, Share the Dignity, Sunrise Way, The Shack Community Centre in Nambour, The Sycamore School in Redlands and the Toowoomba PCYC.
