The history of the fund went back to the old C&W Charity Trust and was created by the creativity and commitment of staff to garner funds for the fledgling Fund and to support people less fortunate.

Some of the old initiatives were people in Johannesburg chasing around Kyalami pushing beds dressed in all sorts of gear and Fridays where staff came to the Offices in “casual gear” and placing their “casual day” donation into the Charity Trust. As the Group has grown and become a global, this fund has changed, and through the amazingly generous contributions of time and money, the Hobart Enterprises Charity Trust has a foundation; that we are working hard to grow and support educational and appropriate employee driven initiatives.

From Our CEO

“As the CEO, balance is something that I not only personally strive for but is something I work hard at achieving in all the elements of the Group.”
HECT is, in my opinion, the link to this balance, or where MIND, BODY and HEART come together! Ideas, or what at HECT they refer to as the “MIND” are just ideas until they become embodied in some action or activity, which is for us where the “BODY” part comes in, you know the healthy body and mind. But alone, these may lack the feeling, or in my view the HEART, the motivating spirit of giving or doing, something for another. My pledge for this year is to commit to HECT, its greater family and all of its events and initiatives. Together we can achieve one massive heart. Thank you all in advance for all that you contribute and do to make HECT what it is.
– Dave Barnby
