Over the past month Teneo set-up and ran a 50/50 raffle in a bid to raise $10,000 for local Queensland charity The Daniel Morcombe Foundation. This week following four weeks of raffles and a visit from Bruce and Denise Morcombe on-site at Phosphate Hill, Teneo are proud to announce that the total raised has exceeded our original target and reached an incredible $18,925.
Included in the raffle fundraiser, Teneo also organised for Bruce and Denise to visit Dajarra State School during their visit to Phosphate Hill. Our managing director Michael Walsh accompanied the Morcombe’s and is a huge advocate for engaging with our local communities. The children of Dajarra thoroughly enjoyed the visit, but more importantly were able to be educated with the Daniel Morcombe Foundation’s critical messages around safety.
The Daniel Morcombe Foundation was established in honour of Daniel Morcombe to make Australia a safer place for children. It was founded by parents Bruce and Denise after their son was abducted and murdered in December 2003 while waiting to catch a bus on the Sunshine Coast, Queensland. The aims of the Foundation are to educate children and young people about how to stay safe in physical and online environments and to support young victims of crime.
Teneo and Incitec Pivot Limited would like to extend a massive thank-you to everyone involved and pass along Bruce and Denise’s sincere thanks for the generous support.
