After a successful day of trading, nabtrade together with its customers have raised more than $250,000 for the flood recovery in Queensland and New South Wales.
The full day’s brokerage will be donated to GIVIT who are working hard to help those affected by storms and flooding managing offers of donated goods, services, volunteering and funds.
nabtrade Executive, Adrian Hanley, said it was great to see such a strong response.
“This event has been an enormous success and we are proud to have been able to support GIVIT’s brilliant work across flood affected areas,” Mr Hanley said.
“On behalf of nabtrade, thank you to everyone who got behind us and chose to trade today.”
GIVIT CEO Sarah Tennant said the recovery from these floods will be long-term.
“We’re grateful to everyone who contributed to this fundraising effort today,” Ms Tennant said.
“These funds will be used to purchase essential items for people impacted by this disaster across Queensland and New South Wales. GIVIT will be working with these communities into the future.”
Today’s ‘nabtrade flood relief trading day’ follows a strong tradition established by the team to give back to the communities and make a difference where, and when, it really matters.
