Our Australian Knight.

Each year, staff at The Knight recognise a worthy recipient for our ‘Australian Knight’ award who has demonstrated qualities that personify those of a Knight, including bravery, selflessness and leadership.

All staff nominate a person or charity doing work within the community for the betterment of others, and chosen winner is donated $10,000 to put towards their endeavours.

The Knight have been running our Australian Knight award since 2010, which is announced on the 26th of January each year, and has to date donated $83,000 to charities nationwide.

Recent winners include Mat Bowtell of Free 3D Hands, Fiona Wood of the Fiona Wood Foundation and Neale Daniher of the Cure for MND Foundation.

Other charity work.

The Knight is always seeking new ways to support the community and looking for charities which align with our values.

Our team raise money each month which is donated to a charity nominated by staff and each year we host a morning tea as part of Australia’s Biggest Morning Tea to support the Cancer Council. 2019 was our 8th annual Biggest Morning Tea and we raised a huge $2,171.30!
