Giving back to the community
Giving back to the community is core to the BINGO family values. We proudly support two major cancer charities - the McGrath Foundation and the NSW Cancer Council. Since 2014 we have raised over $1.7 million for these charities. In 2021 and 2022 BINGO was also proud to be a major sponsors of the Cerebral Palsy Alliances STEPtember campaign.
The McGrath Foundation raises money to place McGrath Breast Care Nurses in communities across Australia. They also provide greater breast cancer awareness education for young women. In support of the McGrath Foundation and to raise awareness for breast cancer, BINGO operates a fleet of pink McGrath Foundation trucks, affectionately named Rose and Mary. During the month of October 2021, BINGO raised over $24,000 for McGrath as part of our Breast Cancer Awareness Month fundraising campaign.
NSW Cancer Council
The Cancer Council NSW conducts and funds world-class research and believes in a cancer free future. The Council provides support for people with cancer, their carers, family and friends, throughout their cancer journey. We have given two of our front-lift commercial waste trucks a pink makeover to show our support for this charity.
