Round 7 Grant Recipient

“A big thanks to Suncorp for the contribution that helped make this day possible”

Christopher O'Connell from Insurance nominated Victorian Police Angling Club

Chris O’Connell from Insurance nominated the Victorian Police Angling Club for a Brighter Futures Grant in Round 7, enabling them to support disabled people in their local community in a very special way.

On Sunday 12 October 2016, the club hosted Mates Day On The Bay where 12 members escorted 12 people with a disability on a fishing trip. Aside from learning outdoor skills and having some fun in the sun, the day helped benefited the participants’ self-esteem and gave them an opportunity to bond with their local community.

The club hired a charter boat for the morning and although the weather wasn't ideal, the group still caught some fish, making the day extra special.

“A big thanks to Suncorp for the contribution that helped make this day possible”, said Chris.
