KCGM Staff Christmas Gift to the Community

KCGM’s staff is bringing Christmas cheer to four local organisations with the donation of its latest LTI Bonus of $24,000 and a $2,000 staff fundraiser for the Salvation Army’s Christmas Hamper Appeal.

The $24,000 donation is being made on behalf of KCGM staff and contractors to celebrate reaching two million hours without a Lost Time Injury (LTI), meaning no one was absent from work due to a work related injury or illness during this time. The LTI Bonus will be donated to the Goldfields Women’s Refuge ($15,000), the Goldfields District Scouting Association ($6,000) and the Goldfields Regional Toy Library ($3,000).

KCGM Acting General Manager Ian Butler said the donation was a reflection of KCGM staff’s generosity toward their community.

“The LTI Bonus was originally given to staff as a symbol to keep striving for these safety milestones. Around five years ago staff decided they wanted to donate the rewards for reaching our safety milestones to the community,” he said.

“The decision to support the Goldfields Women’s Refuge, the Goldfields District Scouting Association and the Goldfields Regional Toy Library came after these organisations were suggested by KCGM staff members.

“It is fitting that our LTI Bonus is providing the Women’s Refuge with $15,000, particularly at this time of year when there is an increase in the number of women and children seeking shelter from unsafe environments.”

Goldfields Women’s Refuge Manager, Janet Harvey, said that the Refuge relies heavily on donations and the KCGM staff’s donation will be used to purchase much needed resources for people in very difficult circumstances, as well as food and other essential supplies.

“This allows us to keep our facility running and to be able to help the women and children who come to us. We always welcome donations of food, clothing and white goods but we have had less this year. This gift from KCGM staff will allow us to buy essentials to help our clients to start new lives,” she said.

Mark Faulks, District Commissioner for the Goldfields Scouting Association, says the group will use the donation from KCGM staff to assist with upgrading the Boy Scouts and Girl Guides District Camp Grounds. The $6,000 will purchase a donger block of showers and toilets, allowing up to 80 people to camp overnight. This will provide an activity and meeting area for the district’s 124 scouts as well as a source of income, allowing the groups to complete more community work and outdoor activities and to direct fundraising to other activities.

The Goldfields Regional Toy Library will use their $3,000 donation to purchase materials to help recruit more members and to conduct outreach activities in the community.

Previous KCGM safety milestone bonuses have been donated to the Mayor’s Blanket Appeal, the Goldfields Aged Pensioners Relief Fund, the Kalgoorlie Regional Hospital and Goldfields Rehabilitation Services.

The Salvation Army have also benefitted from the generosity of KCGM staff, with nearly $2,000 raised through donation envelopes placed across site and a raffle held at the KCGM Christmas Parties. The Salvation Army will use the funds to provide Christmas Hampers to those in need.

KCGM Bonus for Red Cross

KCGM is supporting the local Red Cross soup kitchen by providing a donation of $12,000.

The donation is a result of KCGM staff and contractors reaching one million hours without a Lost Time Injury (LTI), meaning no one was absent from work due to a work related injury or illness during this time.

KCGM General Manager Russell Cole said the donation was a reflection of KCGM’s commitment to the local community.

“The LTI Bonus was originally given to staff as a symbol to keep striving for these safety milestones. Around five years ago staff decided they wanted to donate the rewards for reaching our safety milestones to those who need it most,” he said.

“This time staff members have voted to donate the bonus to the Kalgoorlie branch of the Australian Red Cross. The $12,000 will be used to purchase much needed equipment and supplies for their Friday to Sunday evening soup kitchen.”

Australian Red Cross Kalgoorlie Manager, Paula Brennan, said that their local programs are primarily manned by volunteers and the donation is a much needed boost to resources.

“Donations and volunteering from the community make such a difference. This kind of help allows us to keep our local programmes and facilities running and to reach more people,” she said.

Previous KCGM safety milestone bonuses have been donated to the Mayor’s Blanket Appeal, the Goldfields Aged Pensioners Relief Fund, the Kalgoorlie Regional Hospital, Goldfields Women’s Refuge and Goldfields Rehabilitation Services.
