Connecting with our community and participating in various initiatives has always been a priority to us here at Qudos Bank.

In the past couple of months, we’ve golfed for a cause, celebrated lifelong friendships, promoted healthy living and ice skated to bring smiles to children’s faces.

QCCT Golf Day

On a Friday morning in May, the Qantas Cabin Crew Team (QCCT) gathered at Botany Bay Golf Club in Sydney, to raise funds for children in need throughout Australia and around the world. Formed in 1998, QCCT is committed to providing child education sponsorship programs. The event raised a total of $6000, assisting with projects to increase job skills training, education and basic supplies. Qudos Bank joined in on the day to support their ongoing work and to help in raising funds. It was a successful day, a real hole-in-one!

Queensland Corporate Games

Over 80 staff members and friends of staff members representing Air Services Australia gathered for the fourth annual Queensland Corporate Games in Brisbane. This year, Air Services Australia had representatives participating in a wide range of sports including touch football, soccer, beach volleyball, ten pin bowling, tennis, cricket and golf. All participants put their best foot forward with almost all teams finishing in the top eight, with some even scoring first place! We were happy to support Air Service Australia’s participation in the games, promoting friendly competition and an active weekend.

Variety Ice Skating Event

On a rainy Thursday morning in June, there was no shortage of sunshine in Macquarie Centre Ice Rink. Qudos Bank supported the Ladies of Variety (the Children’s Charity), which provides specific hands-on opportunities for special needs children, with their bi-annual Ice Skating event. Members of our team helped bring the children around the rink, bringing smiles to their faces while sporting their new Qudos Bank beanies!

Red Tail Road to 100

In May, we supported the Red Tail Road to 100 reunion event in Perth. These events celebrate the lifelong friendships between former Qantas staff and recognise their contributions to the airline and aviation industry. The initiative aims to reunite former employees over a series of events across Australia and overseas in the lead up to the airline’s centenary in 2020.

Talent Development Project Scholarship

Every year, Qudos Bank partners with the Talent Development Project (TDP) to support an up and coming music artist to achieve their dreams. This year, TDP graduate Chris Rose was awarded the highly sought after $5000 scholarship to assist in his musical journey with recording, touring and collaboration with other artists. From the seaside town of Port Macquarie in NSW, Chris is already turning heads being interviewed on KIIS FMs Aussie Music Show ‘PlanetOZ’ with his latest single ‘Someone Like You’ being added to the Hit Network across Australia. To hear performances from TDP students and graduates, drop into the Qudos Bank Arena member lounge if you’re in Sydney for a concert and be sure to check out Chris' latest single ‘Someone Like You’, online now.
