Pink Stumps Day 2017

Servitel's Business Manager, Greg, looking grand in his pink shirt and wicket keeper pads.
The reason? This match was #PinkStumpsDay to help raise money for the McGrath Foundation and the team well and truly got into the spirit.
There were pink stumps, pink hats, pink pads, pink wrist bands and of course a couple of pink shirts.

Over $500 was raised by the team and supporters. Well done folks

The match may have been a loss but a lot of fun was had and of course its never too late to donate more:

Mystery Box Rally 2016 – Highlights

Servitel's Australia & New Zealand Business Manager completes the Mystery Box 2016 rally
This year Greg from Servitel and his brother, participated in the Mystery Box Rally to help raise awareness and funds for the Cancer Council Australia. The Mystery Box Rally is just that, a mystery.

Each team 'bids' on their cars the night before the rally and receive their maps and destination each morning. With no idea where they are going or if their car will survive, the teams set off over 5 days and over 2500Kms through the South Australian country side.

Along with Aerial Capital Group and the Ainslie Football Club, Servitel was a proud sponsor of Greg's team, the Lug Nuts. With over 130 teams plus support crew, this fantastic event has raised over $760,000 for the Cancer Council Australia.

"It was an amazing event. We really do have such a beautiful country when you leave the city. We met some amazing people in places like Kingoonya and William Creek. And our team, The Dirty Dozen, such great folks from all over Australia. Could not have had better team mates to do this event with. I have to thank my brother, Sam for inviting me to participate. It is something I will remember for a long time...and look forward to doing it again" - Greg Johnson, Servitel Australia & New Zealand Business Manager
