Austcover backs Marist College Ashgrove in quest to give disadvantaged students a boost

Cricket legend Sir Ian Botham, former Wallaby John Eales, and Olympic swimmer Sam Riley were among the international sporting champions to fly the flag with Austcover at a major fundraiser for disadvantaged kids run by Marist College Ashgrove held at the Brisbane Convention and Exhibition Centre on Friday, 16 March.

As key sponsor of the premier event, Austcover was proud to support the work of the College’s Champagnat Trust which raises money to give financially struggling

families the chance for their children to reach their potential through education.

Stars attending included former rugby international Pat Howard, and Trust co-patrons John Eales – Australia’s most successful rugby captain – and Matthew Hayden, the batsman who still holds the record for Australia’s highest Test score.

The event has run for 14 years and has raised hundreds of thousands of dollars over the years to help children from

struggling families access opportunities which would otherwise be out of reach. Austcover’s financial support is the latest in a number of community engagement initiatives from the company which help organisations and charities in need.
