The recent 2014 Foodbank Golf Day was above par, attracting a record number of participants and fundraising dollars since the first Golf Day was first held seven years ago.

The annual event, held in late July at Brookwater Golf Course, raised $35,000, which will be used to provide meals to 140,000 people experiencing hunger in Queensland.

With the festive season approaching, Foodbank is once again conducting its annual canned food drive to help Queenslanders in need.

Sadly, Foodbank has seen an increase in the number of people every year who require assistance to meet their basic food requirements, including people with disabilities, aged pensioners, children, the homeless, and plenty of hardworking families struggling to make ends meet.

Rowland staff will be donating to the Corporate Can Christmas Appeal 2014, and all clients, associates and friends of the firm are welcome to drop off their canned goods at Rowland’s reception for delivery to Foodbank prior to Christmas.
