BANKING ON THREE GOOD CAUSES

There’s nothing we like to see more than sensible people doing silly things for a really good cause, so it’s only fair that we give a mention to Matthew Kelly, Head of Manufacturing & Wholesale at St.George, who will once again be taking part in the Coleman Greig Challenge on Friday 20th September 2019 in Parramatta Park.

The event will raise much-needed funds for three charities - St Gabriel’s School, Royal Institute for Deaf and Blind Children, and Westmead Hospital Foundation.

Overall, the organisers are hoping to raise $250,000 for the three children’s charities, which would surpass 2018’s record haul of $231,000.

Matthew Kelly has promised that if his team reaches its stated goal of $15,000, he will personally walk the 2.5km dressed in his company’s iconic Happy Dragon suit.

We’re backing him to make the total with a little help from our readers. And he does have a good history in the event. (Our picture shows him receiving a commemorative plaque for raising $13,100 in the 2018 event.)

Industry Update readers can contribute to the cause on the team’s fundraising page to ensure that the Happy Dragon makes an appearance on 20th September.
