Our annual Taylor Charity Golf Day took place last Friday, 25th March 2022, where we welcomed many of our subcontractors and suppliers to participate in a day of golf, friendly competition, networking and, most importantly, fundraising activities to support the Sporting Chance Cancer Foundation.
This is Taylor’s sixth consecutive year of hosting our Charity Golf Day which has established itself as a significant milestone on our annual calendar. Together, we have raised more than $350K to help make a difference by supporting the valuable work of our chosen charities.
For the third year in a row, Taylor is excited to partner with Sporting Chance Cancer Foundation, an organisation committed to providing financial support for mobile home care units and outreach programs for regional families with children undergoing treatment for cancer.
Over the last 24 months, due to Covid-19 restrictions and lockdowns the Foundation has unfortunately had to cancel numerous fundraising events. During this challenging time, Taylor is proud to have raised over $200K for the Sporting Chance Cancer Foundation – contributing towards the key funding for nurses in Sydney, Brisbane, Melbourne and Adelaide for their outreach programs.
On Friday we were joined by Former Australian Cricket Captain, Australian of the Year and founder of Sporting Chance Cancer Foundation, Mark Taylor, and Director, Jack Hughes, who gave insights into the life-changing work of the foundation. Mark also paid tribute to his former teammate and dear friend, Shane Warne, reflecting on some of his greatest moments and sharing some treasured memories.
We were also joined by special guest, Bridget McGinley, one of two NSW Clinical Nurse Consultants who operate several of the Sporting Chance outreach programs for kids with cancer. Bridget shared a couple of powerful stories on the direct impact the outreach program has had on a number of kids and their families. Bridget has played a valuable role in allowing many children from rural areas to stay in the comfort of their own homes for as long as possible and maintain as much normality in their family and day-to-day life as possible.
Taylor would like to thank our Major Sponsor, Raston Group, as well as all our loyal suppliers and subcontractors. Without their generous support the success of the day would not be possible. Specifically, we would like to acknowledge the following sponsors.
