BTi Raising Funds For Cancer Council Australia
It is with great satisfaction that we wish to share with you the news of our recent fundraising activity for Cancer Council Australia.
On 23rd May 2019, BTi Logistics hosted “Australia’s Biggest Morning Tea” in order to raise funds for the Cancer Council Australia. An estimated 145,000 new cancer cases will be diagnosed in Australia this year, with that number set to rise to 150,000 by 2020 (Australian Institute of Health and Welfare, 2019). Being an Australian owned company, BTi strongly believes in giving back to the community, the same community who has helped us survive and grow for over 30 years, a community that is suffering and needs our support. Being a successful business is not enough for us, we want to make a difference with people’s lives, hence we chose the Cancer Council Australia for our philanthropic focus.
BTi Logistics created a donation webpage through Cancer Australia, where our staff and others generously contributed funds online. In addition, BTi staff prepared delightful food and sweets that were enjoyed on the day, while some also took part in fundraising games. Once the donations were finalised, BTi doubled the total of donations and released $820 to Cancer Council Australia. Essentially the funds will go towards life-saving cancer research, support services, prevention programs, and advocacy.
Although the official date for Australia’s Biggest Morning Tea is 23rd of May, we encourage you to host your tea anytime in May or June. Get your friends, colleagues or family together over tea and treats, and help raise funds to support those impacted by cancer.
