AMP boosts funds for Kids in Need
OLYMPIANS and other celebrities might have stowed their dragon boat paddles for the holiday season, but AMP Foundation this week delivered on its promised $10,000 for the Kids in Need Dragon Boat AMP Border Challenge.
AMP Tweed financial planner and Rotarian, Wendy Scarlett, was on hand at Jack Evans Boat Harbour, Tweed Heads to hand the cheque to Kids in Need treasurer, Eric Vock.
"The cheque brings to $30,000 the total which AMP Foundation has donated to this worthy local charity," said Ms Scarlett.
"The Foundation's support has a significant impact for youngsters of the Tweed and Southern Gold Coast who might be disadvantaged by serious illness or disability.
"What we like about KIN is that all the money goes direct to areas of cli- ent need. It is a heartwarming reward for KIN's volunteers and to members of Tweed Heads South Rotary who created the AMP Border Challenge race three years ago and who have supported the annual event in kind and in cash virtually since its inception in 1983."
