As of August 2019, Nectar has raised over $48,000 for our charity partner, Children’s Cancer Institute – the only independent medical research institute in Australia wholly dedicated to putting an end to childhood cancer.
These donations were raised through a number of community fundraisers our team has run, as well as the support of our incredible customers. Upon the settlement of their home loans, an increasing number of Nectar customers are choosing for us to donate $50 on their behalf to the institute. These donations are starting to add up and can make a real difference to the lives of children with cancer. We’re committed to supporting Children’s Cancer Institute for the long term, so it’s invaluable to have our customers on this journey with us.
Some of the memorable events we’ve run over the last 18 months include regional golf and lawn bowls days and movie nights. Nectar also entered a team in this years’ Endure for a Cure, a 12-hour endurance cycling challenge at the Sydney Motorsport Park, which is one of the Children’s Cancer Institute’s most important annual events.
Check out some great footage from the 2019 Endure for a Cure, featuring our very own General Manager, Stephen Harris.
We’re only just getting started and aim to go bigger and better in the months and years to come – watch this space.
Curing childhood cancer. It’s not if. It’s when.
