Local small business owners have generously stepped up, raising a whopping $860,000 for the Far North Queensland Hospital Foundation.
The Trinity Advisory team recently hosted our fourth annual Christmas charity lunch at the Little Sister restaurant in Cairns, with the aim to significantly improve health services in the region. The event featured an auction with 65 exciting items, including Taylor Swift concert tickets and exclusive island holidays.
At this year's event, Trinity Advisory, led by co-owners Rod and Sue Sherrington along with our clients, raised a remarkable $405,000, far exceeding their $300,000 goal. This contribution brings total donations to the foundation to more than $860,000 in four years.
“We just love showing support back to the community who show us so much support,” Rod said.
Attendees contribute to the FNQ Hospital Foundation through initial donations and further engage by generously providing and bidding on auction items, ensuring all proceeds benefit the charity.
“Every single dollar raised goes directly to the FNQ Hospital Foundation.” he said.

Around 120 small business owners attended the event, with 100% of funds raised going directly to the Hospital Foundation.
“It's the best result we've had for a one-off event,” foundation CEO Gina Hogan said after the event.
