Causes We Support

At least one Friday a month the staff at Charman Partners wear casual clothes to the office in exchange for a small donation to a nominated charity.  It’s a fun, relaxed way to raise money for our favourite charities whilst raising awareness of work done by some of the lesser known organisations.

We also have a permanent tub in the office where staff, their families & friends make a donation of a different kind to a local Blackburn charity.  The charity is called Pinchapoo and was founded by the inspirational Kate Austin in 2009.  Pinchapoo collects ‘pinched’ hotel toiletries which are then packaged up and handed out to those in need of basic toiletries.

It doesn’t take long for the tub to fill with soaps, travel size shampoo and conditioners, combs, toothbrushes, toothpaste, moisturisers and tissues.  We’ve now had a couple of packing days in the Charman Partners boardroom where we’ve bundled the donated goods into care packages.  Pinchapoo then goes onto to redistribute the packages to thousands of disadvantaged people around Australia through such organisations as homeless shelters,  crisis accommodation, hospitals, schools, jails and emergency relief.

Some of the other charities we are proud to have helped out in the last 6 months are;
