PKC 'Charity of Choice' for United Community Campaign
Posted by Alice on June 27, 2012

On the 26 June United Community Credit Union hosted a presentation evening at Kailis Bros in Leederville to recognise organisations recently supported by their ‘Charity of Choice’ campaign.  

Pilbara and Kimberley Care (Inc) (PKC) were chosen by the Karratha Branch as their Charity of Choice for the period February through to May 2012.

PKC Board Director Professor Paul Skerritt, and wife Dr Margaret Skerritt, attended the evening on behalf of PKC, to receive a $13,000 cheque, which was presented by United Community State Manager, Michelle Coelho.

Mr Stuart Flynn, Chief Executive Officer of PKC stated ‘It is organisations such as United Community Credit Union that make the difference.  Providing this assistance enables PKC to offer more to our clients which ultimately enhances their quality of life.  We are extremely grateful for the funds raised by the Karratha branch of United Community Credit Union and this money will fund the purchase of a new gazebo, outdoor furniture and shadecloth for Roebourne Day Centre, furniture for our Tom Price site and bain maries for the Meals on Wheels service in Karratha.’

The United Community Charity of Choice campaign was held over four months. The Karratha Branch raised money by holding raffles and various competitions.  A highly successful Trivia Night was also held at the All Seasons Sports Bar where over 180 local residents attended and had a fantastic evening.

Last financial year, Community CPS donated more than $1 million dollars to local charities in South Australia, the Australian Capital Territory, Wagga Wagga, Hunter Region and Western Australia through community initiatives such as fund raising, campaigns, community grants and donations.
