Bruce Scott visits local workplace
THEY recognise his face as they work to fasten 70,000 magnets to the back of his calendars, but yesterday the Endeavour Foundation employees were excited to meet Bruce Scott in person.
The Federal LNP Member for Maranoa visited the workshop and shared a morning tea with Endeavour Foundation Industries (EFI) Warwick staff, along with Shadow Parliamentary Secretary for Education and LNP Qld Senator Brett Mason.
“This business shows people with disabilities can make a great contribution in life and the products they make here are so important to the community,” Mr Scott said.
“You only have to hear the laughter here to know this is a happy workplace.”
Mr Scott has also utilised the employees' skills as they are currently preparing his end-of-financial year calendar which they affix magnets to and package.
“It is delivered from Warwick to Winton and from Ballandean to Birdsville ... I am a very satisfied customer,” he said.
Senator Mason said the EFI was a very worthwhile project which was important for the government to support.
“There is no better way to show support for the community than through the disabled. This industry makes a big difference,” Senator Mason said.
Warwick Endeavour Support Group member John Davis said Mr Scott had always supported the EFI and helped keep the great cause going.
“The more they know the more they can push the cause,” Mr Davis said.
Fellow member and mum of employee Leigh, Christine Stacy said it was important for Mr Scott and Senator Mason to know what was happening in this area.
