Community

In the right hands, 1% is a big deal.

Our values seek mutual success and our Pledge 1% leverages a portion of our success to support our communities.

We do this by offering up to 1% of our spaces, profits and our people’s time, towards community organisations and enterprises that support meaningful employment within our local communities. 

The more successful we are, the more we can give.

Supporting bushfire affected communities

Our thoughts continue to be with all those impacted by the devastating bushfires, and those working hard to keep our communities safe and rebuild.

Like many others, we want to help.

Helping our farmers

When our famers are impacted by natural disasters, there’s a direct effect on all of us. We have an obligation to pitch in and help.

In October 2019 at Max, Matt & Maxine’s dairy farm in Singleton, and Terry & Joe’s in Dubbo, we joined Rural Aid Ltd on ‘hay drops’ where 42 farmers received a share in 202 tonnes of hay.

This was made possible by the support of shoppers in over 20 of our retail centres nationally, as together we raised $196K+ for Rural Aid.

Watch on as we visit these farmers and understand first hand the hardship they face.
