We recognise the privileges our floral world has afforded us and how lucky we are to be in an industry which has provided some amazing opportunities. We applaud and respect the amazing work being done in and around Geelong by some incredible individuals, organizations and community groups and are inspired by the generosity of people who live amongst us.
Our strategy is to focus on select organisations each year who we feel reflect our core values and interests; we aim to support them through fundraising, donations, awareness raising and volunteering to enable them to assist needy people in our community.
These are our Smellies community friends:
- Smellies are Ambassadors for Cottage by the Sea children’s charity who provide support and accommodation to families in crisis and offer seaside holidays to marginalized children in our community. Find out more at www.cottagebythsea.com.au
- Smellies are corporate sponsors of the St Mary's Sporting Club who support the active involvement of children/young adults in sport and provide a sound social environment for families and friends to come together through recreation and activity. Visit them at www.stmarysfc.com
- Smellies are committee members of Girls on Track, a coterie group of the Geelong Racing Club, who run the annual Geelong Ladies Raceday luncheon which has raised over $80,000 for local charities and organisations including Barwon Health, Cottage by the Sea and Signature Charity.
