We also had Metricon team members heading out to prominent locations across Australia to donate their time selling bandannas. Mishae Love, our Corporate Receptionist in Queensland, volunteered to sell bandannas close to our Robina office. Mishae said, "I really enjoyed being able to be a part of something bigger than myself. Canteen provided me with a purpose on National Bandanna Day and it felt good to meet new people, build relationships, take on a challenge and make a positive impact on the community".
Mishae went on to talk about the people who she engaged with on her day as a volunteer.
"Every person we met on the day was special because we all shared a
common goal in wanting to make a positive impact for young people. But
for me, the most special people were my beautiful grandparents. My Pa is
undergoing treatment presently, so it was very humbling that he made
the effort to show his support for Canteen being so unwell himself. He
is the most wonderful role model."
Over the next three years, we hope that we can continue to amplify
the critical work that Canteen does for young people affected by cancer.
Metricon is proud to help Canteen spread the message that there is
support out there – whether you have cancer yourself or if it is someone
close to you.
