Bucks for Brains

Otago Neurological Foundation Fundraiser

02/11/2012 - Milton - October at Calder Stewart was Bucks For Brains Month – with staff across the company giving a little or a lot to Neurosurgery in Otago and Southland.

A couple of years ago, a massive campaign managed to halt the loss of neurosurgical services in the South, and fund raising began to establish the Neurological Foundation Chair in Neurosurgery at the University of Otago Medical School.

Some of the Invercargill team asked how they could help raise funds, and suggested employees could give one hour of their paycheck on a specific donation day. The Calder Stewart Board liked the idea so much they undertook to match employee donations dollar for dollar. $4,349 was raised over the month – so go team!
