The Power Tynan Charitable Trust was established in July 2010, with the aim of giving back and making positive contributions to the communities within which the firm operates.
One such organisation is Queensland Police Legacy. Established in 1971, this charity does a tremendous job of assisting the families of deceased Queensland Police Officers, Queensland Police Officers whose spouse/partner has passed away, and Queensland Police Officers suffering from an incurable/terminal illness.
Over the past 46 years, this organisation has provided assistance to 226 families and 406 dependent legatee children. The importance of this charity hit close to home recently, when local police officer Senior Constable Brett Forte tragically lost his life in the line of duty earlier this year.
Because of this, the Power Tynan Charitable Trust presented Andrew and Anna from Queensland Police Legacy with a cheque for $1,500.
"Our primary focus has always been on ensuring that the dependent children of these families receive the education their parents intended for them, that they deserve and that they may have been deprived of due to circumstance,” said Andrew. “As at June 2017, Queensland Police Legacy supports 54 families, including meeting the educational expenses of 86 dependent children.”
The Power Tynan Charitable Trust has donated over $160,000 since its inception in 2010, and is open to the firm's staff, clients and all members of the public to contribute funds.
