Retail's great Aussie hike

A huge shout out to our Vinnies Retail team, and the rest of Team Vinnies, for their incredible effort, enthusiasm and energy at the Great Aussie Hike. Not only did they hike a mammoth 31kms through beautiful East Gippsland, but they also collectively raised $29,157 for Vinnies services!

The Great Aussie Hike is an endurance walking event for teams covering up to 100km distances using exercise in nature, human connection and goal setting to strengthen mental wellbeing. Donations went towards supporting the East Gippsland community who have gone through drought, bushfires and the pandemic.

Neil Harvey, team lead and Vinnies Retail Operations Manager, was so proud of the teams effort. “That was a long walk, but we all made it! Hundreds of inspiring walkers encouraged us all the way. We were blown away by the support of our families, friends, work colleagues and suppliers.”

Thanks to our support crew and friends from SUEZ Australia and New Zealand Group. Also, a huge thanks to Aures and QDOS for sponsoring the Retail team!
