McLean Delmo Bentleys supports charities and not-for-profit organisations through donations and in-kind support. We support a diverse range of organisations which reflects the diverse interests of our people. Many of our Partners and Staff have a personal connection with the charities and organisations we get involved with.
Here are some the organisations we are supporting.
Team Trivia for a good cause
Mclean Delmo Bentleys recently held a trivia night with the aim to raise much needed funds for the Ti Tree School in the Northern Territory. The relationship between Mclean Delmo Bentleys and Ti Tree Primary school was formed last year when senior accountant Jack Delmo volunteered at the school.
The trivia night was enjoyed by all who attended and collectively were able to raise some funds for Ti Tree School. The night ran with a “September” theme which incorporated football-based questions with a twist!
After speaking with Geoff Gillman, Principal, Ti Tree School, the funds will be put towards the purchase of camping stretches which the school students can use when they make trips to Alice Springs and other surrounding towns.
Geoff also stated that the sporting equipment that Mclean Delmo Bentleys donated last year has been widely used and thoroughly enjoyed by the students. We are looking forward to running further activities in the future to help support the Ti Tree School community.
Roger Antochi, General Manager, Talent Rise gave an inspiring presentation to Partners on the work Talent Rise does with young people. By creating a support network for young people, they help young people succeed in the workplace. #YoungPeopleMatter

Friedreich Ataxia Research Association (FARA)
We were delighted to support FARA through sponsorship of a table at their annual fundraising dinner. The evening raised $110,000 which will go towards Friedreich Ataxia gene therapy research.
In May, FARA ran their social media campaign, Lend us some muscle and our team did just that at a recent gathering!

Through the generous donations of staff and clients, David raised $3,905 to support Whitelion’s programs for at-risk youths, to support them with training, employment and programs to ‘break the cycle’.

Partners and Staff came together to share an amazing morning tea and raise funds for The Cancer Council’s fundraising drive to contribute to research into a cure for cancer.
