On Friday, 19 November, the Trinity Advisory team held their annual Christmas Charity Fundraising Luncheon and Auction, to raise funds for the FNQ Hospital Foundation.
This is a cause close to the hearts of the Trinity Advisory team. Rod and Sue Sherrington, Owners and Directors of Trinity Advisory, have had their own personal journey that required the services of the Cairns and Hinterland Hospital, as have many of their clients, and have been passionate supporters of the FNQ Hospital Foundation for many years.
“This is the second year we have organised this event, last year we raised over $70,000, and this year over $150,000. We could not have done this without the overwhelming support from our wonderful and generous Clients and Sponsors.” said Rod.
100% of auction sales went directly back to the FNQ Hospital Foundation for the purchase of much-needed equipment and services, to help support the Cairns Hospital in caring for their patients.
“Such an amazing achievement and so blessed to have such a strong business community in Cairns. This is a great example of local businesses supporting the community in which they live, and we couldn’t be prouder of our clients and sponsors.” Said Rod.
"We would also like to say thanks to our fantastic MC, Mark Littler from Hits 103.5 Cairns and Auctioneer, Lance Richards from Bid Loud Auctions for their great work on the day!"
Far North Queensland Hospital Foundation Acting CEO Joe Cristaldi said the event was an incredible example of the community coming together.
“We bring the community together every day, but for it to happen on this scale and with this level of support in such a short space of time, has absolutely blown us away,” Mr Cristaldi said.
“Rod, Sue and the team truly galvanised their clients, brought them together for this incredible common goal of improved health care. We’re all going to need the hospital at some point in our lives so why not do what we can to add to and grow the services,” he said.
“The beauty of the Foundation is that every cent donated to us, really goes where it’s intended and that’s because our commercial operations cover all our administration costs. So hand-on-heart – people know when they donate to us, it stays local and it goes where they want it to.”
