The Primary Club of Australia is a “charities charity”, as funds are made available to other registered charities to enable the purchase of sporting and recreational equipment and facilities for people with disabilities.
More than $5 million has been raised to date and donated to many projects that include, for example, the purchase of specialized playground equipment, wheelchairs for various wheelchair sports, special equipment for blind cricketers, horse-riding arenas for Riding for the Disabled, hydrotherapy pools and specialised yachts for Sailability.
Golden Duck Donors
Those interested in the welfare of people with disabilities are invited to join this unique charity.
The Primary Club offers the opportunity for individuals to become Golden Duck Donors for people who donate $1,000 or more to the Primary Club.
To acknowledge this, the Primary Club will include your name in the Annual Report and on this website as well as offer you early access to all Primary Club events. These events often sell out and by being Golden Duck Donor you will have an opportunity to attend these functions.
All are welcome to become Golden Duck Donors, it is not necessary to have scored a ‘primary’ or golden duck.
And of course donations are not limited to $1,000. For more information about becoming a Golden Duck Donor please feel free to contact our office at 02-9980 2525.
