The team at Roz Lahey Accounting support a number of charities that are close to our hearts.

Variety Queensland

Variety Queensland is a charity helping extra special children.  Roz’s husband Nigel got involved in the Variety Bash five years ago and now makes it an annual event.  With the help of his two team mates, he is hoping to raise $15,000 this year for the event.  Roz Lahey Accounting has been a proud sponsor of Nigel’s team and the Variety Bash for five years.

Variety-the Children’s Charity is a national not-for-profit organisation committed to empowering Australian children who are sick, disadvantaged or have special needs to live, laugh & learn. By giving practical equipment, programs & experiences, Variety helps children in need to overcome whatever obstacles they may face & continue to live a happy and fulfilled life.

The have the following Vision and Mission:

Our Vision

For all Australian children to attain their full potential regardless of ability or background

Our Promise

Variety will strive to meet unmet needs that empower Australian children who are sick, disadvantaged or have special needs to live, laugh and learn.

Our Aim

To maximize real long term positive impact on the future of all Australian children.

Roz’s husband Nigel got involved in the Variety Bash Seven years ago and now makes it an annual event.  With the help of his two team mates, they have raised over $100,000 for the past few years.  Roz Lahey Accounting has been a proud sponsor of Nigel’s team and the Variety Bash for the duration.

At present their mission is to have a Liberty Swing installed in the Robelle Domain at Springfield Lakes.  This has the Ipswich Council approval and will hopefully be completed by the end of this year.  This has been a great challenge and by the time it is installed has been two years in the planning.  What an achievement from such a dedicated team. 

Congratulations to the team of Car 1718.

World Vision

For the last five years Roz Lahey Accounting has sponsored two boys, both from Zimbabwe.  Through sponsorship, the Roz Lahey Accounting team hope to make a lasting impact and positive change on the lives of the two boys.

RSPCA

Roz is a passionate dog lover and has been fortunate enough to have amazing dogs who’s loyalty was and continues to be second to none.  For this reason, Roz Lahey Accounting donate regularly to the RSPCA to help other dogs and animals that don’t have the same love and warmth shown to them.

 

SMART PUPS

 

Smart Pups Assistance Dogs is a dedicated not-for-profit organisation based on the Sunshine Coast in Queensland, Australia. They specialise in providing trained service dogs to assist children with special needs. Their goal is to improve the quality of life of children with autism and seizure related syndromes through training their dogs in ‘task specific’ skills. Their Smart Pups reduce stress levels in children and have a profound effect on the day-to-day lives of the child and family. These positive changes continue as the bond and relationship between child and Smart Pup grows over time.

I have seen first-hand how extremely intelligent and trained these very special family members are.  The cost of preparing an assistance dog for a family is over $25000.  At Roz Lahey Accounting we encourage everyone to get behind this very special charity.  It really does make a difference to a special child’s life.
