The generosity of the people of West Moreton in Queensland shone through brightly at our FundABLE Future last week and has opened the door for the development of three new community programs.
Around 80 people joined us for a fun night at the North Ipswich Reserve Corporate Centre, where host, Olympic Gold Medallist, Duncan Armstrong welcomed the 80-strong crowd and explained how the night would work.
After a drink and a snack, the audience was shown a brief presentation on three new community-based programs in need of start-up funding before being invited to pledge a donation.
The presentations clearly struck a chord with the happy crowd - just under $35,000 in cash and in-kind support was donated on the night and incredibly, donations are still coming in. At last count, total funds raised had tipped over $45,000 with possibly more to come.
Watch this space for further updates as these new programs are developed and implemented over the coming months.
Our thanks to the Ipswich City Council for their generous support and to all of our incredible sponsors and donors for helping us to make a great community even greater!
