Each year the Northern Beaches Credit Union sponsors a surf boat at Queenscliff Surf Life Saving Club. But this year it will certainly stand out with the boat being coloured pink to promote the McGrath Foundation cancer charity.
The credit union told COVERED. all about this ongoing link and how they are delighted to help raise much-needed funds.
One of the highlights of the year for Northern Beaches Credit Union is the continual tradition of sponsoring a surf boat at Queenscliff Surf Life Saving Club.
We are proud to announce that this will be the 16th boat that the credit union has launched for the surf club.
But in 2017, you may notice something different about the boat; it is unlike anything we have ever done before. Following the merger with Community First Credit Union, Northern Beaches is now the home of the McGrath Pink Visa credit card and to celebrate this, we are turning the surf boat pink.
ABOUT THE CARD
The award winning McGrath Pink Visa credit card offers members true value with no nasty surprises. It has the same low rate for – purchases, balance transfers and cash advances with a low ongoing rate of 8.99%p.a. As well as a low annual fee of $40 which helps keep your costs to a minimum.
But what matters most, is that half of the cards annual fee ($20) is donated to the McGrath Foundation, set up following cricketer Glenn McGrath’s and his wife’s experience with breast cancer.
As at June 2016, the card had raised over $450,000 in donations since the pink cards launch, and continues to raise finds today
This money helps to support McGrath Breast Care Nurses in communities right across Australia and increases breast awareness in young Australians, with a particular emphasis on young women.
So if you have the time, come see the pink boat and the girls in action at the carnival on Queenscliff Beach on Saturday 21st January 2017.
