Integrated property and construction group Pindan is throwing its support behind the Karratha community, channeling $25,000 into two new community partnerships.
The sponsorships deliver recycling refunds collected while completing Woodside’s Karratha housing project into the local community.
Pindan, which has a long-standing presence in WA’s northwest, has awarded one of its 2021 sponsorships to St Luke’s College in Karratha.
Pindan’s support was acknowledged at a ceremony at the Pilbara high school today.
St Luke’s College Assistant Deputy Principal Jason Bradley said the $12,500 sponsorship would help a group of 40 students attend this year’s Country Week Sporting Carnival in Perth.
We’re delighted Pindan has chosen to support our selected players, giving them their first chance to attend this key annual multi-sport event between WA rural high schools.
Country Week is a great opportunity for students to compete at a higher level, broadening their usual experience of playing against their mates locally, supports their physical and mental health, as well as builds leadership skills, as most of these kids have not played sport in Perth before.
Importantly, Pindan’s support helps keep younger people in Karratha, because they’re getting more of the sporting opportunities they want, and that’s vital for keeping families together and helping our community thrive.
These regional sponsorships work to keep the regions strong.St Luke’s College Assistant Deputy Principal, Jason Bradley
St Luke’s will send boys’ and girls’ volleyball teams, a netball team and a boys’ basketball team and Pindan’s sponsorship will subsidise transport and accommodation costs.
Pindan Operations Manager Derek Hammond said Pindan was thrilled to be giving back to the region.
Family values and supporting local communities and charities are integral to us and we’re excited to play a part in keeping Karratha families together through offering more opportunities to local youthPindan Operations Manager, Derek Hammond
Pindan Contracting Managing Director Jaco van Staden said the group was also proud to have awarded a $12,500 sponsorship to Karratha Community House.
Karratha Community House, is a not-for-profit organisation dedicated to providing families in the City of Karratha, the opportunity to connect with others while engaging in play-based learning programs for babies and children up to 12 years of age.
We’re pleased to be financially supporting this wonderful community group to continue expanding its programs which work to keep Karratha families connected while helping children develop.
This, in turn, makes Karratha a more family-friendly place to live.Pindan Contracting Managing Director, Jaco van Staden
Community Partnerships Manager, for Karratha Community House Richa Joshi said the funding would help keep programs affordable for local families.
The funds will go towards our Science Club, Art Club and Little Explorers program, amongst others, and help us create exciting learning experiences for families and children 0 to 12.Karratha Community House, Community Partnerships Manager, Richa Joshi
