Advivo’s Involvement with Charity

This year Advivo are getting behind multiple Charities to show our support towards some great organisations that help our community.

We recently entered the Rotary Club of Kingscliff Duck Race which supports the Rotary Club in the area.  The team at Advivo dressed up our duck and he has become our team mascot.

One of our partners, Chris Morris, will soon take part in the Annual MS Brissie to the Bay on the 19th June 2016 to show support for people living with MS.  This is a great cause and we will be getting behind Chris as he attempts to concur the 100km course, we invite you to click here if you would like to donate to Chris’s ride and support MS.
