Quicksilver Group Christmas Charity Appeal Launched

The Quicksilver Group is delighted to be relaunching the company’s annual Christmas Charity Appeal, in the spirit of helping less fortunate members of our community. 

The Appeal first began in 2004 but due to COVID impacts was unable to be held over the past few years.

With support from industry colleagues, local suppliers and the company’s 490 strong staff, food and gifts will be donated to the Salvation Army Cairns, St Vincent De Paul Cairns and the Douglas Shire Community for their direct distribution to families and individuals in need. 

“It has been, and still is a very challenging time for many people and businesses in our region and the charities are in need more than ever,” said Tony Baker, Quicksilver Group Managing Director.

“Every donation will certainly help make Christmas much happier for a lot of families and people. We hope this will make a difference to many in our community.”

Major Ben Johnson of the Salvation Army said, “Last year we assisted 680 households with Christmas hampers, and with the increase in cost of living, we are expecting the need to be much greater this year.”

“The donations from this Appeal will greatly assist many people who are struggling, to experience a more joyful Christmas, feel valued and celebrate along with the rest of our community,” said Major Johnson.
