During August of this year, the Ascot Branch had a welcome visit from Donald and his wife on his 89th birthday. He has been banking with us since 1959 when we were formerly known as Qantas Staff Credit Union.
Donald shared his story about working in Traffic for Qantas at Sydney Airport, and he mentioned that banking looked a lot different back then. Personal bankers would call out names when cash was ready to be picked up.
Our lovely team at the Ascot Branch made him feel welcome during his visit and they kindly gave him some Qudos Bank merchandise to take home.
Donald also shared how happy he was to receive such outstanding service from us over the years.
We’d like to thank Donald for taking the time to show his appreciation for Qudos Bank on his 89th birthday. Thanks for making us feel special!
In late September, we had a coffee cart available at the office where our employees were able to enjoy a hot beverage in exchange for a donation to Foodbank. We successfully raised a total of $194.45 in donations from our employees, which was a great success.
Foodbank is Australia’s largest food relief organisation, and they work with 2,950 charities in providing food and groceries to vulnerable Australians every year.
We’re pleased that the donations made from the coffee cart will help support Foodbank and their work in providing for those communities in need.
In October, we were delighted to welcome back the fantastic talent that make up the Qantas Pathfinders Crew Revue, who performed their epic shows during the last week of the month. Unfortunately, due to COVID-19, the talented members of Pathfinders were unable to do their yearly showcase of fun and tongue-in-cheek shows in 2020 and 2021.
Even after facing the brunt of the pandemic, the Qantas Pathfinders volunteers were back in high spirits, coming together to show their support for an important cause. The 2022 show entailed laugh-out-loud comedy, and dazzling costumes that embodied the spirit of Halloween.
The Pathfinders Crew Revue who are made up of the Qantas Cabin Crew, Pilots, and friends, generously volunteer their time and talents to bring this show to life each year, and we’re proud sponsors of the event.
Since 1967, the event has supported NextSense (formerly the Royal Institute for Deaf and Blind Children) and have since raised over $8 million to support their work in supporting both children and adults with hearing and vision loss.
This year, we donated $5,000 to support this cause along with some additional prizes for the fundraising raffle.
We would like to thank Qantas Pathfinders for throwing an amazing show this year and look forward to the next one in 2023.
