Comments Off on “INSURANCE ASHES” DONATIONS – open to 28 Feb 2019

In conjunction with the Insurance Ashes Cricket Festival at North Sydney Oval on Tuesday 12th February, the Primary Club is inviting members, players, spectators and other interested parties to make a tax-deductible donation to our charity trust account.

Funds raised at this particular event are being directed to our playground project at the Spring Farm Public School in western Sydney.  Over 30 students there cope with a range of autism-related communication challenges.  Today, their playground space is either a sun-dried dirt space or sloshy mud.  We are hoping to raise over $40k to help build a softfall surface and install safe play equipment.  CLICK HERE to donate today!

Open to 28th February.

Special thanks to various Insurance Industry companies who have already contributed to the project – 360 Underwriting, Allianz, CGU, QBE, Insurance Advisernet, Procare, Steadfast, Suncorp and SURA-AUB!
