Supporting our partners through hardship
In mid-April Tabcorp was pleased to announce a commitment to support the relief effort for those affected by ex-Tropical Cyclone Debbie.
Tabcorp contributed $250,000 to fundraising efforts managed by the Australian Red Cross Society and a number of industry partners.
$200,000 was donated to the Red Cross with the remainder distributed to funds managed by Queensland Thoroughbred Breeders, Queensland Hotel Association, Racing Queensland and Racing NSW.
The Queensland Thoroughbred Breeders Board was particularly delighted with Tabcorp’s support of the ‘Healthy Hoof Appeal’.
The Appeal was established by QBA Vice President, Stan Johnston and helped provide resources like sand and sawdust and excavation work for breeders affected by the floods. Stan said the Tabcorp donation has gone to recipients in the flooded Rockhampton area.
“The $12,500 from Tabcorp is very significant for our appeal and was welcomed by all involved,” Stan said.
“It’s been a pleasure to work with Tabcorp and we really feel we work together as a team.”
Queensland and Northern NSW are important regions for Tabcorp’s business. Tabcorp has over 200 employees based in the flood-affected regions and approximately 17 per cent of Tabcorp’s shareholders are Queenslanders. The company is proud to make a positive contribution to these communities and to support its partners.
