Ocean Road Magazine: Salvation Army

Gold Coast based lawyer Tony Hickey has been working with the Salvation Army as Chairman of the Red Shield Appeal for South East Queensland for 16 years.

He tells Ocean Road Magazine:

“My role encompasses being responsible for the guidance, direction and overall control of the Red Shield Appeal on the Gold Coast. That includes a mail out by the Salvation Army asking for donations, a door knock appeal as well was a business breakfast launch.

I quickly realised that this was an opportunity for me to give back to the community.

The breakfast itself over the last 16 years of my involvement has raised approximately five and a half million dollars – something that the Gold Coast can be very proud of.

From day one, when I took over as Chairman of the Appeal in 2000, I’ve had enormous support from the Gold Coast business community.”
