Congratulations to Lauren Guymer (or as many people know her, LG) and her partner Joe, who tied the knot in a beautiful ceremony at Sunshine Beach at the end of February – just before COVID-19 hit!
We wish them a lifetime of love and happiness as they start their next chapter together as Mr and Mrs Lucas.
Congratulations to both Sarah Tansky and Dan Beck, our most recent graduates!
Sarah has completed a Bachelor of Commerce majoring in Accounting through the Power Tynan Scholarship Program, and Dan Beck has completed an MBA – Masters of Business Administration.
Lifeline Share the Warmth Appeal
When faced with unexpected circumstances and uncertain times, many people across the South West turn to Lifeline Darling Downs and South West Queensland.
Winter is traditionally a challenging time. The colder weather is usually accompanied by increased requests for support from struggling families and individuals. The need in our community has never been greater, with one in six children in Australia living in poverty and a 22% increase in the number of people seeking food support from a charity in the last 12 months.
Sadly, these statistics will continue to rise, as will the need for mental health services, as the rate of unemployment increases and social isolation grows due to COVID-19.
To do our part, the PT Team participated in Lifeline’s Share the Warmth Week, which was held from 18th – 22nd May.
Share the Warmth Week challenged participants to:
- CONNECT (virtually) with your team, your friends or family
- SHOW how you’re keeping warm this winter, dress up in your best winter outfits, make your favourite winter drink or share your hot tips on staying warm
- SHARE the Warmth by making a donation to the appeal and posting photos of your crew on social media (Instagram, Facebook, Twitter or LinkedIn).
Lifeline Darling Downs and South West Queensland had set a fundraising target of $5,000, and the total came in at $5,722!
While Share the Warmth Week may be over, Lifeline is still running their winter appeal. If you are in a position to donate, please know it will make the world of difference to a person who is really struggling. You'll not only be keeping people warm, but filling hungry bellies and connecting people with professional counselling and material support.
