Hang Ya Boss Out to Dry
Power Tynan once again participated in Hang Ya Boss Out to Dry.
This event is a major fundraiser for the Toowoomba Hospice, who provides free palliative care for the terminally ill of Toowoomba and surrounding areas and relies on the local community for support.
This year, Director Dan Beck was the lucky ‘boss’, placed in a cherry picker and raised up into the air (quite a challenge for someone who is AFRAID OF HEIGHTS!), and had to raise a minimum of $3,000 before he was allowed back down.
Dan did a FANTASTIC job fundraising (even after a slight machine malfunction!), and raised a total of $4,238.
Thank you to our generous clients, referral partners and team members who supported this very worthy cause.
Congratulations to Aimee Rowe and Caitlin Ruthenberg, our most recent university graduates!
Homeless for a Night Sleepout
Members of the Power Tynan team braved the Toowoomba winter and slept out on the streets to show their support for Base Services, raising awareness of homelessness in our community.
Base Services run the local soup kitchen. Most days the Basement Soup Kitchen sees 60 to 80 people in need including men and women, individuals and families of all ages who are homeless or at high risk of homelessness.
The Basement Soup Kitchen is vital for those doing it tough in Toowoomba, as it is often the only meal that person will eat for the day and the only place where they are able to connect and feel accepted. It also provides access to blankets, swags, warm clothing and links to accommodation and other necessary services.
Their next fundraising event is Hike for Homeless, being held on 26th October. For more information, or to register for the event, visit https://www.mycause.com.au/events/hikeforhomeless
Congratulations to Lauren, Sammi and Caitlin, whose respective partners Joe, Andy and Chris all popped the question during the last few months.
