The Vikings Group are proud and excited to work with Red Nose as our Charity of the Year for the 2016/17 financial year.
Together we have set an ambitious fundraising target of $80,000, with the partnership focusing on raising awareness of and supporting Red Nose’s safe sleeping education, research and support services available for families in the ACT.
From its founding, the Vikings Group has been dedicated to being a responsible corporate citizen. Our commitment to our community is embedded into every decision we make. It is our aim to foster a culture where our staff and members can work together to support the local communities that we serve, on a continually sustainable basis. The Charity of the Year initiative gives members and our employees the chance to pool our strengths to support a cause we feel passionate about.
“The Board, management and staff of Vikings are dedicated to making a positive difference in the community we are a part of,” said Vikings Group CEO, Mr Anthony Hill. “Our members participated in the selection of our charity partner for the coming year and we can genuinely say that the great work of Red Nose is close to the hearts of all involved with our Club. To work with Red Nose will be a very rewarding experience.”
