21 August 2017

Volunteers for the St Vincent de Pauls society - Gladstone will be more comfortable this summer with the community organisation receiving a $20,000.00 cheque at the Botanic to Bridge on the weekend.

The 2017 major community beneficiary will use the funding to redevelop the warehouse facility by air-conditioning the donations sorting area and improving the overall warehouse facility.

Gladstone Ports Corporation (GPC), CEO, Peter O’Sullivan said he was honoured to hand over the cheque to such a deserving organisation.

“GPC is proud to coordinate such a significant community event as the Botanic to Bridge which is able to provide financial support to groups such as St Vincent de Pauls,” he said.

“The work of this organisation is vital to our community. In the tough times we are currently faced with their services are more valuable than ever.”

An impressive 3,500 people participated in the annual event supporting St Vincent de Pauls and local schools.

St Vincent de Pauls join a long list of deserving Botanic to Bridge community beneficiaries including Tannum Sands Surf Life Saving, Rosella Park School, Gladstone Community Hub and the Pyjama Foundation.
