Tonight marked the 30th anniversary of The Footmen Club, an association of leading business people who provide assistance to individuals facing severe financial hardship. Weg Green, renowned comic provided caricatures of the public.
While Australia is not as strongly regarded for its philanthropic culture as the United States, this does not mean that a culture of providing financial aid from the corporate sector does not exist. In both countries the distribution of wealth is widening and it is therefore crucial that all sectors of the community provide assistance where they can.
The celebration of 30 years is a proud achievement for a club dedicated to such a noble goal.
