From an incredibly deserving field, the judging committee has today announced the following as the winners of the 2020 Alliance Bank Do Good Awards:

Do Good Outstanding Achievement Award - Liam Foldi and Kenshi Candles

Kenshi Candles is a social enterprise that has raised over $50,000 directly funding projects in Australia, Kenya, Sri Lanka, Papua New Guinea and Myanmar. They are hand poured in Melbourne and the business was started by Liam when he was just 16 years of age.

Do Good Social Purpose Business Award - Technology for Ageing & Disability ACT (TADACT)

TADACT aims to improve the lives of clients and their carers by designing and customising assistive equipment that is not available commercially, or requires modification. This small not-for-profit has been operating for more than 40 years, is manned by 60 volunteers and assists around 400 families each year in the Canberra region. 

Do Good Team Award - Got Your Back Sista 

This charity works with women and their children experiencing domestic violence and aims to provide a pathway from refuge accommodation to sustainable independent housing and employment. 

Do Good Community Award - Collin Peebles 

Collin is the CEO of the Geelong Food Relief Centre, a not-for-profit food bank that provides emergency food relief to around 27,000 people in the region. The bushfires of last summer and COVID have placed even greater demand on the food bank and Collin has been instrumental in meeting this increased demand.
