Sunny Club beneficiary dinner for Compass

Compass was proud to be a sponsor on Friday the 23 March at the Sunny Coast Club Dinner at the Maroochy RSL. The large crowd were entertained by Matt Wright – The Outback Wrangler – with tales from his adventures in the Australian bush as well as overseas.

We we’re also grateful to receive a cheque on the night for $1,800 as a beneficiary of the event. Thank you to the Sunshine Coast Daily for the opportunity. The next event will feature the amazing Cosentino so stay tuned for dates and make sure you get a table.

Cricks Sunshine Coast continues their amazing support for Compass!

This morning I had breakfast with one of the most charitable and generous people on the Sunshine Coast – Matthew Murray. As so often happens, Matt kicked off by pushing a cheque across to me… on this occasion it was for $20,000.

By my estimate this takes the total he has donated to Compass over the past three years to $138,000… but that’s not all.

Every month Matt’s business – Cricks Sunshine Coast – buys specially prepared boxes of jams & chutneys made out on Compass Farm and puts a box in every new car they sell. The total of this support now exceeds $116,000!

And this doesn’t take into account the numerous Compass fundraising events he has sponsored…

I want to ask your help in applauding Matthew’s generosity… as a personal favour to me please like and share this post as widely as possible. Good news needs to be spread 😊. Thank you!
