The World’s Biggest Hamper Pack Challenge took place on Tuesday 17th October 2017 with more than a hundred Flight Centre Travel Group staff volunteering their time to pack thousands of hampers across the country. It was a fantastic day all round!
Flight Centre Foundation and Foodbank launched the World’s Biggest Hamper Pack Challenge campaign on 1st August 2017, aiming to set the world record for the most food relief hampers packed in one day for a food bank.
Flight Centre Travel Group customers joined the challenge by making a donation for a hamper while making their travel bookings at Flight Centre, Cruiseabout, Escape Travel, Travel Associates, Student Flights or My Adventure Travel stores around the country. A number of corporate sponsors also donated pallets of hampers!
As an added bonus, all donors went into the draw to win $7,000 worth of flights thanks to Virgin Australia. We are thrilled to announce that Colleen Antaw from NSW was the successful winner of the draw!
Thank you to everyone who contributed to campaign – each hamper donated will a feed a family in need for a week. On behalf of these families, we are incredibly grateful for your support.
Over the coming days, we will be tallying up the results and starting to distribute the hampers to struggling Australians. Check back here for updates to see if we set the world record!
