6 years with donor Margaret and family

Margaret James is a born and bread Gold Coaster and has worked hard in her family business alongside her husband Peter and brothers Robert, John, Peter and Bruce (seated).

Margaret retired 6 years ago at the age of 80 and has been a major donor ever since. This brings her real joy and connection.  She loves hearing the news and being able to give back and effect real change.

The greater Neumann family also are generous regular supporters of Maluk Timor and BPC before that.

The family have successfully worked together as a group of businesses for over 60 years.  They have supported many families and organisations in their local community in an informal way long before the Neumann Benevolent Fund was established.

The family get much pleasure in giving back.
