2018 charity bowls day one for the record books

5 December 2018

On Thursday 29 November 2018, a record number of energy traders from across the country, converged at Merthyr Bowls Club in Brisbane for Stanwell’s annual charity bowls day.

Together, the 18 teams and spectators, raised more than $41,000 for the Cherbourg Council Material Recycling Facility (CCMRF), while battling it out on the bowling green for the prestigious Stanwell Perpetual Trophy.

Stanwell’s Executive General Manager Energy Trading and Commercial Strategy, Steve Quilter, said the Stanwell Classic bowls day had become one of the industry’s most highly-regarded annual events.

“The bowls day supports a different Queensland charity each year, and this year we’re pleased the money we raised will contribute to supporting improved employment and economic outcomes for Aboriginal people,” Mr Quilter said.

“The funds raised at the event will allow the CCMRF to purchase a container counting machine so that they can efficiently process bottles and cans brought to their collection site under the new Queensland container recycling program.

“The revenue this facility generates will allow them to employ and train more staff and volunteers and reach its full capacity of processing 10,000 tonnes of recyclable material per year.”

Thank you to everyone who attended and congratulations to the team from oil and gas company, TOTAL, who took out the trophy in this year’s Stanwell Classic.
