Pitcher Partners dig in to support TRACTION

The Brisbane office of national accounting and advisory group Pitcher Partners has thrown its support behind TRACTION through a new sponsorship agreement.

Brett Headrick, a partner at Pitcher Partners, said while TRACTION was one of many community programs supported by the group there was no greater cause than nurturing the young to strive for achievement.

"The philosophy behind TRACTION is very much at the core of our own corporate culture to care for our staff, clients and community," Mr Headrick said.
 

"The TRACTION program empowers young people in need so we are particularly thrilled to be supporting this worthy community program."

The firm's support will include an annual cash donation to TRACTION over an initial 3-year engagement plus an annual Alumni Bike Ride for Pitcher Partners' staff, former staff and families. The annual event is aimed at both raising funds for TRACTION and engaging the Pitcher Partners team with the community program.

TRACTION founder Sandy Murdoch has welcomed the much-needed support from the high-profile firm.

"We are extremely grateful for the sponsorship commitment from Pitcher Partners and their faith in the work we do," Mr Murdoch said.

About TRACTION

TRACTION empowers young people in need by helping them positively engage with their communities, discover new talents and create their own future.

We understand that everybody learns differently and some young people do not realise their potential in a classroom.

TRACTION provides a safe environment where young people, with the guidance of mentors, learn new skills and put them into action through participation in real, tangible and meaningful learning activities.

TRACTION programs provide the chance for participants to restore items donated by the community whilst being supported by mentors and volunteers who provide positive role modelling.
