Past events

Stadium Stomp - July 2019

On 28 July 2019, our firm-wide event was the “Stadium Stomp” at the Gabba.

On an early Sunday morning, our staff together with family members, each tackled 5,000 steps as part of “the Stomp”. Along the way, we were also fundraising for the Leukemia Foundation.  Donations can still be made here, to support the foundation.

The day after saw a few weary bodies in the office but an otherwise thoroughly delightful time was had by all. You can tell by all our smiling faces.
