Bushfire Appeal

We are proud to announce our new monthly Lloyds Charity Benefit and encourage you to get involved.

Supporting local not-for-profit communities is something we hold very close to our hearts.

Last year we got behind the Gold Coast Titans Community Foundation, Support the Girls, SCARF, Headspace and Transformations in the Gold Coast, and raised money to help them change lives.

We also started a very special partnership with RizeUp Australia, a community-driven organisation of passionate men and women, dedicated to supporting the many families affected by domestic and family violence.

Every month we have a ‘Feel Good Friday’ where our staff members are to bring in an item (or gold coin) to donate to RizeUp to help them set up new homes for those who have had to flee their own.

Over the past few weeks we have also a series of online Bushfire Relief auctions with all proceeds going directly to fire affected communities, firefighters and volunteers.

We have been astounded with the amount of support from the public, companies and celebrities donating items to support fellow Australians in need.

Aussie Cricket legend, Jeff ‘Thommo’ Thomson, the world’s fastest bowler, is putting his Baggy Green Hat and Cricket Vest up for auction.

Dr David English, First President of British Empire BeeGees Record Label, RSO Records, has kindly donated an Electric Guitar signed by music icon Barry Gibb.

Home and Away star, Lincoln Lewis, donated several pieces of cherished memorabilia, some signed by fellow cast members including Chris Hemsworth.

We would love to say thank you to all those contributing efforts towards raising funds for the Bushfire Relief auctions.

Why should you get involved?

We are privileged to be able to offer our auction platform and assist in bringing awareness to this desperately needed fundraising. We appreciate the support from our partners in helping us do so.

In December we proudly introduced the brand new, monthly Lloyds Charity Benefit Auction which is 100% for charity with 0% fees.

Each incredible item in this month’s auction has a charity of the donator’s choice linked to it where all money raised will be donated.

This auction platform allows donators the option to donate anonymously or to be able to connect themselves with their donation.

Our third Charity Benefit auction is online now and all items go under the hammer on the 11th of February 2021.

We have had massive support from some huge brands including Kubota who have donated not one, but two, tractors valued in excess of $110,000 each!

All proceeds from these tractors will be going to the National Country Women’s Association for the farming families who have been impacted by the Australian Bushfires.

Speedcafe have also made generous donations including a signed front guard from the 2009 TeamVodafone FG Ford Falcon driven by Craig Lowndes.

Thank you to all the wonderful supporters who have contributed to our first Charity Benefit.

Some of the charities we have supported so far include Variety, The Salvation Army Bushfire Appeal 2019, Motor Racing Ministries and the Titans Community Foundation who have now become ‘Titans Together’.

We encourage you to take part in this charity auction as all of the proceeds will go direct to the charity that is affiliated with item.

How can you help?

It’s not only an impressive auction but a fantastic chance to give back and do something for charity and your community. All items can be shipped Australia wide and bidding starts at just $1!

We would like to present to you the perfect opportunity to help your own wellbeing, and someone else’s, by simply doing something nice for someone today.

Dig deep and grab yourself one of these very special items or experiences knowing that it will give a helping hand to those who need it.

It is a hugely rewarding experience and there’s a unique sense of satisfaction in knowing that you are making a real difference to the lives of others!

If you have a charity you would like to nominate or an item you would like to donate (or both!) send us a message now to take part in next month’s Charity Benefit auction.

But please don’t think you must have spare cash or be able to donate an item, service or experience, to make a difference.

Simply using your voice, your social media or business emails to get the word out there about our Charity Benefit auctions helps raise awareness.

Thanks to all the wonderful supporters who contributed to our first few Charity Benefits and made this all possible.

We are all just good people helping good people.
