VenuesWest and the Boab Network working together for Indigenous children

VenuesWest and the Boab Network working together for Indigenous children
February 3, 2017

As part of its commitment to giving back to the community, VenuesWest and the Boab Network have been working together to bring 16 children from an Indigenous community in Mowanjum, Western Australia to participate in a variety of fun activities.

After consulting with the local community, the Boab Network decided to run school holiday programs for the young indigenous community and approached VenuesWest to see what assistance could be provided.

VenuesWest acting Chief Executive Peter Bauchop said VenuesWest jumped at the opportunity, stating “giving back to the community is very important to our organisation and this initiative goes hand in hand with our core business behaviours of delivering exceptional customer experiences and making every effort to use our resources efficiently.”

“We are very proud to be associated with an organisation that is focused on giving back to the community by helping local community groups.”

Activities, held at HBF Arena, included AFL, basketball and activities on the facility’s slide and giant inflatable.

Over the years, VenuesWest has been involved with giving back to the Boab Network, in particular by providing over 1000 pieces of unclaimed items including goggles, jumpers, track suits, t-shirts to the Boab Network in 2014.

In July 2015 VenuesWest established the VenuesWest Community Partners Program, which sees VenuesWest joining with a small and specific group of charity organisations offering tailored opportunities and benefits to assist them in achieving their core objectives.

The Community Partners include Manna Inc, Superfins WA, Make a Wish Foundation and WA Disabled Sports Association.

Mr Bauchop added “VenuesWest is an intrinsic part of the West Australian community providing sporting and entertainment experiences to over 3.5 million community patrons every year.”

VenuesWest is Western Australia’s provider of premier sports and entertainment venues and its portfolio includes the world class Perth Arena and the redeveloped nib Stadium as well as Perth Stadium to be completed in 2018.

These are in addition to HBF Stadium, HBF Arena, WA Athletics Stadium, Bendat Basketball Centre, Midvale SpeedDome, Perth Motorplex, Champion Lakes Regatta Centre, WA Rugby Centre, State Netball Centre and the Western Australian Institute of Sport High Performance Service Centre.
