Spotlight on Endeavour Foundation
Thanks to Southern Cross Austereo and the North Queensland Toyota Cowboys’ Field of Dreams initiative, 30 Endeavour Foundation staff and volunteers will have a special night out at the Cowboys v Wests Tigers match at 1300SMILES Stadium on Saturday night.
It will be a big thank-you for all that the Endeavour Foundation does to support people with a disability in the North Queensland community.
The staff attending represent various parts of the organisation, including Endeavour’s much-loved recycled clothing stores in Aitkenvale, Thuringowa, Kirwan and Garbutt, where customers can choose from a large range of quality new, pre-loved and retro products, while at the same time helping to raise funds to provide opportunities for people with a disability.
While the Cowboys and Southern Cross Austereo will be hosting the staff and volunteers, Endeavour are planning a special offer for all Cowboys supporters as part of their celebration of National Op Shop Week (24-31 August).
During the month of August, when shopping at any Townsville Endeavour Foundation recycled clothing store, supporters will receive a 10% discount of their purchase when they mention the code word “Cowboys”.
“Being part of the Field of Dreams this season has been a wonderful experience for the people we support and our staff and volunteers,” Endeavour Foundation business development manager Verena Coombe said.
“It is a great acknowledgement of the work our organisation does in the community. Each group that has attended a game this year have had a fantastic time.”
Since it started, the Cowboys Field of Dreams program has given almost 3,000 special individuals in the community the opportunity to watch the Cowboys live in action at 1300SMILES Stadium.
“Each game day, one of our Field of Dreams sponsors donates 30 home game tickets to a charity in recognition of their valuable contribution to our local community,” Cowboys community relations manager Fiona Pelling said.
“Southern Cross Austereo's generous support of the program means that everyone attending the game will get to learn about the Endeavour Foundation and its fantastic work to help North Queenslanders who have a disability.”
