Community & Environment

Banlaw is a respected corporate citizen and lends its support to a number of community based organisations and initiatives which assist in improving the quality of life for the community. 


Banlaw was part of a crowd-sourcing project to deliver a 6 Star Women’s Event at Surfest 2016, bringing the cream of women’s international surfing talent to Newcastle. 


Banlaw is a proud, long term supporter of the CommStrength Foundation, a non-profit charitable organisation funded solely by the community and business groups. The Foundation was established to support the valuable work of Father John Macpherson, serving the often neglected needs of the younger community. The primary objective of the Foundation is to support young persons aged 15-25 years, and advocate change for issues that impact upon their welfare.


Banlaw is a proud sponsor of Merewether Carlton Rugby Club in New South Wales, supporting teams at every level of competition including the senior grades, colts and women’s teams.
