CSC Group’s annual Charity Golf Day has raised $9,500 for the Caboolture PCYC’s Braking the Cycle program.
The charity golf day saw 132 players showing their support by digging deep in their pockets to raise the much-needed funds, according to CSC Group CEO Kelvin Patch.
“It was a fantastic day and we are very grateful to all of our sponsors and suppliers who contributed to the day.
“This is the 15th year we have run the event and we’re proud to be able to help boost this new program to the Caboolture region.”
PCYC’s Braking the Cycle program provides support to learner drivers without access to a supervisor or a registered vehicle to complete their logbook hours.
The aim of the program is to provide young people with increased employment opportunities, community connection and driver education.
Since 2013, PCYC Braking the Cycle has helped over 1,350 young people obtain their driver’s licence through a network of over 700 volunteer mentor drivers, over 50 vehicles and the support from more than 50 government, community and corporate partners.
With the support of the government, community and corporate partners, Braking the Cycle is currently offered at 42 PCYC clubs across Queensland and is now proudly offered at the Caboolture PCYC.
The program has received numerous awards for road safety, community, and crime and violence prevention including the prestigious Prince Michael International Road Safety Award in December 2018.
The CSC Group’s $9,500 donation will go towards purchasing a manual vehicle which will provide an avenue for participants needing a manual license to apply for jobs.
PCYC is always looking for more mentors to join the volunteer driver mentors team; even if it is just an hour a week!
