Cormack Packaging participated in its 10th annual Australia's Biggest Morning Tea, at its Condell Park facility on Tuesday 25th May.
Raising $2010, staff donations were matched dollar for dollar bringing their 10 year total to over $16,000 in contributions for the charity which raises awareness and funding for the Cancer Council's research and support services.
The annual fundraising event is just one of the community support initiatives that Cormack Packaging undertakes. Managing Director Mathew Cormack will also participate in the 6 week charity Snowy Ride to raise funds and awareness for children's cancer research, each year the Snowy Ride aims to raise over $200,000 for The Children's Cancer Institute.On discussing the community support initiative that Cormack has in place, Mathew Cormack Managing Director said "What we are doing is a very small step in a big plan and we are planning on having a lot of fun doing this, in 2010 we will continue to support the great efforts of the Cancer Council and the ABMT but feel that by nominating in addition the Steve Walter Foundation in conjunction with the Snowy Ride that we can increase the amount of funds and awareness for Children's cancer research. Kids and Cancer is a pretty grim reality and it is very targeted. We have all had an experience with losing a family member or friend to cancer, this is an opportunity for us to help support those trying to find a cure."
