Our thoughts continue to be with our stakeholders around the country who are impacted by bushfire, drought, and floods. We understand that the impact of these events will continue to be felt in rural, regional or remote Australia for the coming months and years. To the extent that we can, we offer our support. Information about available assistance can be found at the FarmHub website or The Australian Government information hub. Our team are talking with industry representatives to understand the impact and availability of industry engagement, so we can manage projects accordingly.
Skills Impact has been doing our bit, with collection bins and a guessing competition. We also have plans for a picnic and a market day for staff to sell homemade goods to each other. Funds raised will be distributed between four charities:
- Buy a Bale
- CFMEU Manufacturing Bushfire Relief Fund
- Foundation for Rural & Regional Renewal
- RSPCA national bushfire appeal
If you are in a position to do so, we encourage you to contribute to the relief and recovery effort as you see fit.
Staff have also been contributing in their own ways outside of work, by making private donations, participating in public fundraising drives, and lending a hand in recovery efforts.
