Radio Lollipop is a volunteer charity organisation providing care, comfort, play and entertainment for sick children and young people in hospital.

More than 100 customers, vendor partners and staff enjoyed a round of golf at Brisbane’s Indooroopilly Golf Course on September 20, 2013 and the day was hosted by Pat Welsh (Seven News). With the generous help of sponsors, on-course donations and a post-event auction, Data#3 was successful in raising an incredible $17,500 to donate to Radio Lollipop.

Data#3 Group General Manager, Laurence Baynham said that the company has a long history of engaging with and supporting charitable organisations within the Australian community.

“Over a 10 year period, our Charity Golf Day has raised significant funds which have been donated to organisations across the country. The success of our yearly charity event is evident in the commitment and support from the Data#3 team and our vendor partners in consistently achieving our fundraising goals year on year.

“The team is excited to be supporting Radio Lollipop and are thrilled with the fundraising result! This year’s event is a great day out for all involved and our ability to raise $17,500 will help continue to enable the fantastic work Radio Lollipop do within the community.”

Sandra Ursino, Director, Radio Lollipop Australia said that Radio Lollipop was overwhelmed by the generosity and support from Data#3 and their sponsors. This donation will go towards the purchase of new digital radio equipment in the set-up of the new Radio Lollipop studio in the Queensland Children’s Hospital due to open in 2014.

Data#3’s Corporate Social Responsibility strategy is aimed at reducing the company’s impact on the environment, supporting local community groups and creating opportunities for students to gain experience in and exposure to the IT industry.
