Club Helensvale has continued to support local charities, schools, sporting groups and organisations through our Community Benefit Fund and is proud to have donated over $100,000 back into our community since the club re-opened post the global pandemic in 2020.
Whilst there have been challenges for the hospitality industry, Club Helensvale has remained true to our word; promising to donate $25,000 twice a year back into the community.
Congratulations to the eight local organisations who have been successful with their applications for our round 4 funding.
It is always a difficult task for our Board of Directors to select the worthiest recipients and projects, and this latest round of funding was no exception; the total funding sort from all applications was more than $62,000.
There is a diverse group of recipients including two newcomers, the newly established Pimpama Swimming Club and The Rainbow House organisation.
Pimpama Swimming Club needed financial assistance to prepare for swim meets for their elite swimmers. We have been able to provide funds to purchase backstroke ledges and tethered pool trainers.
The Rainbow House is an organisation which provides grief counselling and parent support groups. The organisation is run by volunteers, but they seek funding to engage professional counsellors to work with young children and teenagers in our local community.
We were delighted to see other organisations who were previous funding recipients reapply for new and exciting projects.
Helensvale Netball, Pacific Pines Football Club and the Helensvale Hornets Junior Rugby League Club were all in need of new training equipment, whilst the Helensvale Hogs are spending over $10,000 to provide a sun safe location for all the families coming to watch their games. This will be a great addition to their facility.
TAC-Q is another wonderful organisation we are only too happy to assist financially each year.
“Teenage Adventure Camps Qld and I would like to express our huge gratitude to you for being one of our very kind supporters over the years, helping us to provide our annual Fleay’s Wildlife Adventure for disadvantaged and special needs children and our annual camps for terminally-ill teenagers and those with a life threatening, chronic illness,” said Issy Asofa.
And last but no means least we treasure the relationship we have with the Helensvale State High School and will support this great school wherever we can well into the future.
