CMC Proudly hands over cheque to Very Special Kids

CMC Property Services presented a cheque to its charity partner, Very Special Kids (VSK) at a staff presentation.

CMC's Fundraising Cafe has raised money for VSK since its inception in 2014. CMC employs a professional barista and chef who sells fresh coffee and gourmet lunches to CMC’s staff with all proceeds to be donated to VSK.

CEO Paul MCann presented a cheque to Andrew from VSK on behalf of the CMC and its staff.

"We are proud of our partnership with Very Special Kids and that our donations go to such a worthy cause," Paul said.

"This partnership has allowed our staff to have an avenue to give back to the community not just in monetary donations, but also in staff donating their time through our volunteer program."

Very Special Kids is a unique organisation that supports families throughout their experience of caring for children with life-threatening conditions, from diagnosis through to recovery or bereavement.

The services are offered free of charge by a team of professional family support workers and hospice staff, who have backgrounds in social work, psychology, family therapy and nursing. These staff are supported by trained family volunteers.

The organisation has operated Very Special Kids House since 1996, Australia’s first and Victoria’s only children’s hospice, providing planned and emergency respite and end-of-life care.
