The spirit of giving

For the third year in a row, Lynette Pattison, now Payroll Officer, has taken it upon herself to organise the annual Foodbank appeal amongst Pickwick’s Brisbane staff to help those in need at Christmas. For those that don’t know, Foodbank is a non-denominational, non-profit organisation which acts as a pantry to the charities and community groups who feed the hungry. It was first established in 1992 in NSW and now has a presence in every state and the Northern Territory with distribution centres in all state capitals as well as a number of regional centres.

CEO Ken Holder along with Rachael Murdoch, Pickwick’s National HR Manager were on hand to thank Lynette for the effort she goes to each year in encouraging staff donations. Ken said Lynette’s commitment to Foodbank and desire to help others reflected the true meaning of giving at Christmas.
