The AGL Action Rescue Helicopter is benefiting from one accounting firm’s Christmas cheer this year.
Instead of posting traditional cards to their clients, Love and Partners Chartered Accountants and Financial Services based at Maroochydore, has opted to send electronic Christmas greetings while donating the money they would have spent on cards and postage to the AGL Action Rescue Helicopter.
“Rather than pay for cards we thought it would be better to donate the money to a worthy cause,” Paul Lunn from Love and Partners explained.
“We’re being environmentally friendly and civic minded at the same time.
“We chose the rescue helicopter because they really do a wonderful job and don’t get a lot of outside assistance, so we’re just trying to do our bit.”
Mr Lunn says the company plans to do the same thing next year and has encouraged other businesses to do the same.
Love and Partners handed over their $1000 donation to AGL Action Rescue Helicopter Chairman Don Moffatt and Acting CEO Brent Chamberlain on Friday.
