CSR Program Brings Smiles
Cairns Convention Centre’s Satchels for Schools Program has grown during 2017 to include a variety of items clients and exhibitors wish to donate. Recently a large number of products were sent to schools in the gulf of Carpentaria, Cape York Peninsular and to nursing homes in Georgetown, Normanton, Aurukun and Weipa.
A utility load of assorted goods has also been collected to be sent to children in Ghana and Sierra Leone. The Rev Kofi (who organises this program) together with his colleagues have built a 5 bedroom refuge for women and children where the items will be most useful. He said that he is ever so grateful for what the Centre donates and conveyed the delight and joy in the faces of the children receiving something new.
