Chris Freel, CEO of UnLtd commented on Nine’s long-term commitment to giving back:

“Nine have been supportive of UnLtd from day one, but over four years ago the partnership deepened after a trip to Dubbo and Lake Cargelligo. They decided to focus their efforts on supporting two UnLtd charities and in that time have committed over $1.2m in cash support, marketing services, promotional support, volunteering, balloon making for kids and money can’t buy experiences like State of Origin and Australian Open tickets for many kids who couldn’t even dream of such opportunities.

“They have also funded social enterprises allowing these young people to gain employment and help break inter-generational cycles of unemployment and pave the way for long-term systemic change. Congratulations Nine!”

Kath Solly and Alex Sandwith from Nine said:

“We are so honoured to receive the Company of Good award on behalf of Nine. Our partnership with UnLtd has been incredible over the last few years, and even more so our partnership with LeaderLife and Down The Track.

“One of the other honours has of course been getting the privilege of having Larn from Down the Track and Joh from LeaderLife as part of our Nine extended family, meeting the charities and the kids has been amazing. We love being part of UnLtd and can’t wait to see what we do together in the future!”
