World Plumbing Day
One of the most important days of the year, World Plumbing Day is celebrated on 11 March every year, every where.
Initiated by the World Plumbing Council, World Plumbing Day is a day to celebrate the important role plumbing plays in the health and safety of modern society.
Our World Plumbing Day Breakfast and Golf celebrations were a huge success, and we would like to thank everyone who attended either or both events—it was by far our biggest and best World Plumbing Day yet!
Carlie Low was appointed as MPAQ’s new Female Plumbing Ambassador for 2017 at the World Plumbing Day celebration. The purpose of the female plumbing ambassadorship is to promote the trade to women and encourage them to consider it as a future career path. The ambassadorship will play an important role with MPAQ throughout 2017. Carlie is passionate about attracting more women to learn a trade and enjoys speaking at schools and colleges to encourage students to consider an apprenticeship.
A special thanks to Rebecca Senyard, our first female ambassador, for all her efforts in 2016 and for passing this important role over to Carlie. Click here to read more.
A special thanks also to the Hon. Cameron Dick MP, Minister for Health and Minister for Ambulance Services who spoke about the importance of plumbing for the health and safety of our community. The Hon. Grace Grace MP, Minister for Employment and Industrial Relations, Minister for Racing and Minister for Multicultural Affairs, and the Hon. Mark Bailey MP, Minister for Energy, Biofuels and Water Supply also attended this special event.
Our guest speakers at the event were the amazing David and Tony from Orange Sky Laundry. For those who don’t know Orange Sky Laundry is the world's first free mobile laundry service for the homeless. Starting on the streets of Brisbane, Orange Sky has grown to 11 services across Australia and now does over 6.9 tonnes of laundry every week. A massive thank you to all attendees who bought raffle tickets, made silent auction bids and donated on the day. Over $2,900 was raised, all of which will be donated to Orange Sky Laundry!
