The generous folk at NRG have proven there is such a thing as a free lunch, after donating their Botanic to Bridge prize of a healthy Subway feast to the children of Rosella Park School.

NRG teams won the lunch prize after taking out first place in both the 8km and 3km events at Gladstone Ports Corporation’s Botanic to Bridge FunD Run last month.

NRG Community Relations Officer, Gary Macnamara said NRG cover the cost of registrations every year, to enable employees and their families to participate in Botanic to Bridge as part of the organisation’s wellness program.

“After we won both team categories this year we asked our employees if they would be happy if we donated the prize back to Rosella Park School.
“We received only positive responses, so we decided to go ahead with the proposal.

“We have supported Rosella for a number of years with various projects and we are always keen to support programs that provide positive outcomes for the school,” Mr Macnamara said.

Representatives from Gladstone Ports Corporation, NRG and Subway Australia today delivered sandwich platters to excited Rosella students.

The thoughtful gesture was in keeping with the theme of this year’s Botanic to Bridge, which was to raise money for primary and secondary school students across the Gladstone region.

Thanks to a record number of participants, event organiser Gladstone Ports Corporation was able to present a cheque for $20,000 to community beneficiary, Exodus Tutorial Centre.

In partnership with Education Queensland, Exodus provides a remedial program for primary students in years five to seven, who have learning difficulties related to literacy and comprehension.

Botanic to Bridge also raised approximately $25,000 for local schools to purchase new sporting equipment and other educational resources.
