In September 2016, Transurban Queensland hosted its annual Charity Challenge for Ronald McDonald House South East Queensland. This service provides a home away from home for families with a seriously ill child requiring hospital treatment.
Our charity challenge brought together more than 250 guests, business partners and transport industry stakeholders to compete in a series of fun challenges. Together with our corporate partners, we raised $130,000 for Ronald McDonald House.
Legacy Way toll fundraising
Legacy Australia provides services to Australian families suffering financially and socially after the death of a spouse or parent in the defence force. In Queensland, Transurban operates the Legacy Way toll road, and we donate one cent from each toll collected or a minimum of $100,000 to Legacy Australia. In FY17, we donated $100,000 for this commitment.
Showers for homeless people
Orange Sky is an Australian mobile service that provides free hot showers and laundry facilities for homeless people. Transurban is supporting Orange Sky’s Sydney-based shower van, helping improve health standards and restore respect for people without homes. Orange Sky employs 800 volunteers who spend 1,300 hours a week providing these services to Australians in need.
