A Night at the 13th Annual Wirrpanda Dinner

Thursday the 13th of October was an exciting night for several of our staff, who had the pleasure of attending the Annual Wirrpanda Foundation Fundraising Dinner held at Frasers function centre. The annual dinner, now in its thirteenth year, was a fantastic showcase of what the Wirrpanda foundation had achieved throughout 2018.

While Skill Hire has the honour of working closely with the Wirrpanda foundation, it was great to see the organisation be able to show the community, the progress made in improving the quality of life for Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander Australians.

With the night hosted by Shannon McGuire and Troy Cook, we let our hair down, enjoyed the delicious food and soaked up the entertaining antics of Peter Rowsthorn and Tiny Holly. However, it wasn’t only fine dining and fantastic entertainment, the guests in attendance were able to fundraise an impressive $80,000 for the foundation!

On behalf of the staff at Skill Hire, we want to offer big congratulations for the fantastic outcome and look forward to seeing the great achievements made by the Wirrpanda Foundation in the years to come!

We are counting down to the next annual fundraising dinner for the Wirrpanda Foundation!

  • Skill hire is completely hassle free and I have only good things to say about their service and staff. They fully meet my requirements and expectations every time. Their staff are always well presented, reliable and professional. I absolutely trust Skill Hire to meet my needs and the needs of my catering clients, and will continue to utilize them for all of my kitchen and FOH staff outsourcing. Thanks Ben, Heidi and team!

  • Working with Skill Hire was an absolute joy! Our students enjoyed an unsurpassed opportunity to learn and develop skills that supported their career aspirations. The opportunity to engage with on-site works meant that our students have now had a real experience of these trades and feel more confident in their ability to succeed.

  • A HUGE thank you for organising the Try-A-Trade for our students. All three teachers have come back to school absolutely buzzing about what the boys achieved in those three days and what a fantastic program it is. They also said the trainer was amazing and worked so well with the boys.

  • All students enjoyed their time at Skill Hire very much. Students were excited to see the end result, but were just as excited to demolish it!

    (These students recently took part in a three day Try-A-Trade course at Skill Hire, funded by the Construction Training Fund)
