The baked goods just keep coming!
We've all but lost count of how many bake sales we've had over the last 6 months, all thanks to the wonderfully skilled students at Hamilton TAFE. While this may have been bad for waistlines, it has been GREAT for WaterAid with 100% of the takings added straight to our team fundraising tally!
Colleagues... you may resume your normal healthy eating habits after the close of winnovators 2019 in two weeks time. In the meantime, EAT UP and donate generously!
The Res - sunset tours a hit!
First Team Mareiwa sunset tour of Newcastle's "The Res"
Our first tour of Newcastle's first reservoir, built in 1882 went off without a hitch! It was so great to share our Winnovators story with the Water Services Association of Australia, Climate Change, Energy and Environment network. The views from the roof were pretty spectacular too. Thanks for the great weather Newcastle!
Think, solve, learn...
We have been excited to learn new ways of thinking and problem solving as part of our Winnovators journey! Design thinking, systems thinking and rich pictures are just a few of the different techniques we have been using to tackle the Colombia challenge.
Bake Sales A Treat!
Our bake sales have been a real hit with our colleagues. What better way to spread the WaterAid message than over a cuppa and a cream bun? Delicious way to raise funds and win friends around the office!
Flanno Friday and Bogan Bingo - 14 June 2019
Team Mariewa had a massive day on Friday, sharing our Winnovators story with over 150 people and raising over $2,750 through our Flanno Friday and Bogan Bingo events! We also managed to raise awareness of WaterAid and global WASH issues across 6 companies and 7 offices in one day.
We had been hoping to share lots of hilarious Bogan Bingo photos with you this week, as many of our guests said it was the best laugh they have had in a long time. We were very sad to learn yesterday that our wonderful Bogan Bingo photographer had his equipment and computer (including our event photos) stolen on Monday. We are doing our best to round up some more photos, so if you attended the event and took any photos or videos we would love you to email them to us at email@example.com
Big thanks to all of our supporters, in particular GHD, Hunter H2O, AECOM, Chandler MacLeod and Steve Tyne Photography for supporting our Flanno Friday and Bogan Bingo events, and our prize donors Total Eden, Permeate Partners, 4WD Tours R Us, Passionate People Institute, Dan Murphys Raymond Terrace, GHD, BYO Cellars Medowie, Osiris Embroidery, Michelle Hastie and Bronwyn Mitchell.
