An exciting night last night the 4th March 2019, with 150 accountants and their teams from Countplus (see www.countplus.com.au ) gathered at their Annual National Conference. As part of their conference a Charity Auction was held at the Noosa Heads Surf Club with Little Haven Palliative Care Inc. chosen to be the beneficiary of the funds raised on the night.
But the excitement didn’t stop there with the Count Charitable Foundation providing an additional $30K contribution to bring the donation to Little Haven to a massive $45,000.
The Count Charitable Foundation (CCF) and its members support not for profit organisations and initiatives which make a positive and lasting difference to the wellbeing of vulnerable and at-risk people in the communities in which we live and work.
In presenting the donation CCF Director Peter Nicholson made mention of Little Haven’s vision:
“.. it takes a village to care for their dying and how the ripples of this vision have spread to create a compassionate community caring for their own” Peter said.
Little Haven CEO Sue Manton, expressed the services gratitude to all members of the CountPlus group and the Count Charitable Foundation for not just the financial relief this provides but also the recognition of our whole of community approach to caring for our vulnerable in their darkest of days.
Ms Manton said:
“this recognition from, one of Australia’s most Charitable foundations is an enormous boost and we are honoured to stand beside the many wonderful organisations the Count Charitable Foundation have partnered with since their inception in 2004”.
Thank you to Helga Baxter, Managing Director of Crosby Dalwood, who’s serendipitous conversation with her cousin Sue Byrne, a Little Haven volunteer, lead to their name being put forward as a recipient of these funds.
