For more than 10 years I have donated my time photographing the FDC Construction and Fitout NSW Melbourne Cup Day – a day on which a lot of great organisers, sponsors, prize givers, table purchases, auction purchases and donors give generously to raise funds for charities.

A cheque to the fantastic amount of $148,804.43 was recently handed over to Giant Steps, a school supporting and educating children with autism. The money has been used to upgrade the clock tower stairs, community centre, occupational therapy rooms and roof waterproofing.

For anyone who has not been to an FDC Cup Day I would recommend you get together with your staff and colleagues and book a table for this years event. A terrific afternoon is had by all!
