In Financial Services’ goal is to provide a pathway to a higher quality and more independent lifestyle. We do this by providing a service that helps clients reach their financial goals, but there are other things that we do as well.
Not all of us have the same opportunities in life and sometimes people need a helping hand. We enjoy giving back to the local community, and have supported various organisations over the years.
Play Wel for Mai Wel
In 2010, Janine pitched the idea of an indoor corporate sports day to raise funds for Mai Wel. From that moment Play-Wel for Mai-Wel was born and the annual corporate sports day has gone from strength to strength. The fundraiser is an annual round robin competition of indoor sports, with local businesses banding together for a day of team-building fun and fundraising. Money raised goes to the Mai-Wel Group, which supports people with a disability, and those experiencing disadvantage in the Hunter. To date, the event has raised over $143,500, and positively impacted countless lives across the region.
Hands Across the Water
In 2017 Janine travelled to Thailand to partake in a marathon bike ride organised by Hands Across the Water, an Australian, New Zealand and Thai charity that gives at-risk Thai children and their communities a helping hand. The ride consisted of a five day trek from outside of Bangkok to Khao Lak in Thailand, totalling 500km. The event raised over $384,000, with the In Team total reaching $8,372.36. The money raised helps to build homes and provide education to more than 350 children throughout Thailand.
Sponsorships and Donations
Over the last ten years our team has sponsored and donated to East Maitland Junior Rugby League, East Maitland Netball Association, Maitland Rugby Union, Carries Place, Maitland Hospital’s Children’s Ward, The Starlight Foundation and the list goes on. The money raised for The Starlight Foundation was pretty exciting for us as a wish was received in Maitland to help a child enjoy their day!
