We want to congratulate the whole Carnarvon OB's team on the INCREDIBLE work they've done over the past year! 2.5 million containers were donated through the whole scheme to Community Groups and Charities, of that 713, 318 containers were donated through the OB's scheme ID showing the absolute MAMMOTH EFFORT of the team and everyone collecting on their behalf. 🤩The 2020-2021 financial year saw the Carnarvon Branch of the Australian Order of Old Bastards raise over $93,000 - the most they have raised since 1983. All of these funds have been donated back into community groups and charities with the largest donation of $57,000 being made to the Royal Flying Doctor Service WA. ✈️It is great to see the impact that Containers for Change is having on our environment and on reducing landfill. Don't Feed the Fill! ♻️GREAT WORK and CONGRATULATIONS OB's ❤️💪#OnCountryImpact #DontRubbishCountry #4ChangeWA #DontFeedTheFill ... See MoreSee Less
