Abergeldie provide the infrastructure needed to build a better community… and also supports the charitable and social institutions that hold our communities together.
Abergeldie and its staff participate in a range of community fund-raising events throughout the year. We also donate to charities on behalf of our clients.
An example is our long-standing relationship with the St Vincent De Paul Society. The Abergeldie-sponsored “free food, drink, chat” van helps the homeless of Parramatta and Penrith. Many Abergeldie staff volunteer their time, and Abergeldie’s Executive Chairman, Mick Boyle, is a regular participant in the annual Vinnie’s CEO winter sleep-out.
Abergeldie’s support of the Vinnies Van in western Sydney is set to continue as we recently signed another 3 year sponsorship agreement. While Vinnies works to resolve the broader causes of homelessness, this service provides a valuable support to those who are either sleeping rough or simply like to get out and have a chat and a cuppa with a friendly member of the community.
Each Melbourne Cup day we present our annual cheque payment and also acknowledge the 25 Abergeldie staff and associates who volunteer on the van throughout the year.
