Glencore Community Partnership Program
GLENCORE
COMMUNITY PROGRAM
NORTH QUEENSLAND
2014
The Glencore Community Program North Queensland
has supported several social infrastructure initiatives
since 2005, including the development of the Mount
Isa Family Fun Park, Townsville’s Ronald McDonald
House and the Cloncurry Community Precinct.
These social infrastructure initiatives provide
long-lasting and tangible benefits to the
north Queensland communities
in which we live and work.
Letter from our
Chief Operating Officers
In 2014 the Glencore Community Program North Queensland (GCPNQ)
entered its tenth year of working in partnership with community organisations
to address the areas of greatest need in the Queensland communities
where our employees live and work.
The program demonstrates our commitment to
Queensland and our belief that communities
should benefit from our operations, both in the
short and long term.
Since its establishment in 2005 our partnership
programs have invested almost $28 million in the
north Queensland communities of Mount Isa,
Cloncurry, Camooweal, Townsville and
Bowen and more broadly throughout
Queensland, forming partnerships with
charities, schools, community groups and
government departments to help make a
difference to people across our region.
In 2014 we’re proud to announce over $1.2 million
will be invested into eleven community partners
who have been chosen for their projects that will
improve vital services and facilities in our north
Queensland communities.
Our partnerships are supporting six key areas:
Social and Community Development – to
develop community capacity and to address social
disadvantage including poverty and homelessness
Education – to break the generational cycle of
educational disadvantage
Health – to support the delivery of essential
health and community services
Environment – to support programs focused
on the protection of environmental values
Enterprise and Job Creation – to generate jobs
and provide skills for disadvantaged people
Arts and Culture – to support the development
of local arts and cultural programs including the
protection of Indigenous languages and culture.
We’re confident these programs are making a real
difference and look forward to seeing the success
of our 2014 partners.

“Living over 900 kilometres away from the closest neonatal intensive care unit
in Queensland, new parents Dan and Marie Horskins from Mount Isa were faced
with the challenge of delivering their newborn baby in Mount Isa at only
29 weeks. Following the birth of their baby boy who weighed only
1.55 kilograms, the Townsville Ronald McDonald House provided
them a home away from home for over two months and was
Marie’s support system as baby Sonny grew stronger and
stronger each day. Sonny is growing into a healthy
baby boy.” – Paul Rissman, Ronald McDonald House
North Queensland Chairman.
Ronald McDonald House
Family Wing Crisis Accommodation
“Ninety-eight per cent of families who stay with us come from regional areas of
north Queensland, and we receive daily feedback from our families that Ronald
McDonald House provides them with a home away from home and a friendly and
caring environment that supports the entire family unit.” – Paul Rissman,
Ronald McDonald House North Queensland Chairman.
The Ronald McDonald House Charity is an
independent, non-profit organisation, that helps
seriously ill children and their families when
they need it most, by providing emergency
accommodation close by the Hospital.
Glencore contributed $1 million to the Ronald
McDonald House Charity in Townsville to help
construct a new 12 bedroom accommodation
wing at Townsville’s Ronald McDonald House,
to provide emergency accommodation for
parents and families who have seriously ill
children staying in The Townsville Hospital.
The $3 million new accommodation wing was
completed in late 2012, doubling the capacity of the
Townsville Ronald McDonald House, making the
service available to more people from rural and
regional north Queensland while their children
stay in The Townsville Hospital.
Paul Rissman, Ronald McDonald House North
Queensland Chairman, said due to growing
demand for their services, the original 12 room
accommodation complex was always filled to
capacity with families who required this critical
accommodation.
“Through our partnership with Glencore we have
doubled the capacity of the House and we can now
accommodate more north Queensland families in
need,” Paul says.
Living in north west Queensland can often mean
that specialist care is a long way from home, and
without access to the House, a large number of
families would need to go to great expense to be
with their children while they undergo specialist
treatment at The Townsville Hospital.
One of those families was Marie and Dan Horskins
of Mount Isa whose lives were turned upside
down by the unexpected premature birth of their
baby Sonny.
Following the birth of their baby boy who
only weighed 1.55 kilograms the uncertainty
surrounding both Marie and her newborn’s health
was an insurmountable challenge to deal with,
however the stress of what was to come was in
some way relieved by the safe haven of the Ronald
McDonald House and their friendly staff who feel
like family to Marie and Dan.
“Living so close to the hospital, I was able to
see Sonny as much as I wanted, and speak with
others in similar situations. It helped me feel less
alone with Dan at work 900 kilometres away.
Everything you could think of was taken care of
by the friendly staff and volunteers at the Ronald
McDonald House from getting baby supplies
to eating a healthy meal, the team were truly
amazing,” Marie says.
Over 2,000 families have used the accommodation
facility since it opened, many of them from
Mount Isa, Cloncurry and surrounding
communities, and some of them were
Glencore employees and their families.

Cloncurry Shire Council
Cloncurry Community Precinct
We were proud to provide $2.75 million towards the Cloncurry Community
Precinct, partnering with Cloncurry Shire Council, the Queensland Government
and the Australian Federal Government to deliver this important infrastructure
project for Cloncurry.
The $8 million Precinct lies in the heart of
Cloncurry’s business district and incorporates
the Ernest Henry Mining Function Rooms, Bob
McDonald Library, Dr David Harvey-Sutton
Gallery and the refurbished Cloncurry Shire Hall,
all centred on Community Open Space.
This modern facility has improved existing
infrastructure, which was unable to provide
sufficient space and services for the town’s
diverse needs, whilst preserving a rich part of
the community’s history.
Andrew Daniels, Mayor of Cloncurry Shire,
says the Precinct has helped to make Cloncurry
a more attractive place to live and be.
Since opening in August 2012, the Precinct has
hosted several major events including two balls,
conferences and art shows, as well as a continuous
stream of smaller community gatherings.
In 2013, the building was awarded State Winner
in the Queensland Excellence in Construction
Awards for Sporting and Community Facilities
$5 million – $20 million category and was a finalist
in the Regional Achievement and Community
Awards for Energy and Sustainability.
The facility will no doubt remain a vital part of
the Cloncurry community for future generations
to enjoy.
“With this premier facility we can not only
provide top class venues and recreational
and learning facilities for our community but
attract new business and services to our town,”
Mayor Daniels says.
The Dazzle Ball was one event held to mark the official opening of the Cloncurry Community Precinct

Partnerships
In 2014, eleven north Queensland community groups have been chosen to

7
Mount Isa Swim Squad member Liam Sweeney trains at the Mount Isa Pool
the Mount Isa City Council to extend the heating
process for the leisure pool for toddlers and
young children.
This enables the facility to remain open year
round, meaning greater access for toddlers and
young children to learn to swim and participate
in other lifestyle activities, helping to increase the
liveability of Mount Isa.
Our partnership with the school will fund the
installation of furniture, equipment and air
conditioning for the Science Room and Laboratory
in the Junior Secondary Building.
The introduction of an additional, quality
education option is expected to increase the
retention and attraction rates of families to
the Cloncurry community.

will target the causes of youth crime, including
boredom, lack of supervision and lack of
engagement activities.
“Sport for Life is an exciting community event for the children and young
people of Cloncurry and Mount Isa. We always receive a great response to
our programs and it’s a great way for kids to get involved in sport and learn
some important healthy lifestyle messages throughout the program.”

Stride Foundation
Sport for Life program
“My son is young but loved all aspects of the program. He was excited and keen to
attend every day. Having structured programs that cost the lower socio-economic
families in our community nothing are amazing. Being geographically isolated
makes these programs even more invaluable to us.” – Heidi Rix, Parent
Stride Foundation is a non-profit, non-government
organisation dedicated to helping improve the
physical, mental and social well-being of young
people and their communities.
Stride works with young people in communities
across Australia who may be disadvantaged through
poverty, suffering, distress and helplessness.
Through the GCPNQ, we have partnered with
the Stride Foundation to deliver the Sport for Life
program in Mount Isa since 2011. The program is
aimed at young people aged 14–18 years and uses
high profile sporting role models to deliver health
education and life skills workshops to young
people living in remote communities.
Sport for Life workshops were held each term
with students from Sunset Primary School,
Healy State School, Central State School and
Townview Primary School attending hip hop,
soccer, basketball, ball skills and yoga workshops
throughout 2013.
The hip hop workshops, delivered with the
Indigenous Hip Hop Project (IHHP), were led by
local resident and recent IHHP recruit, Jericho
Young. Jericho’s involvement was well received by
students who were excited to recognise a local as
their mentor.
Lauren Colthorpe (Australian Matildas), Rachel
Flanagan (Australian Opals) and Sophie Smith
(Olympic Bronze Medallist – Water Polo) led
the soccer, basketball and ball skills workshops,
respectively, as well as “Healthy Habits” and
“How Feelings Effect Behaviour” interactive
activities, reinforcing the importance of leading
healthy lifestyles and introducing simple and
manageable habits for students to enjoy.
In 2013 we also expanded our partnership to deliver
Stride’s On the Ball program in Cloncurry and
Mount Isa. On the Ball incorporates basketball and
Australian Football League workshops delivered
during school holidays, encouraging young people
from 6–15 years to participate in sporting activities

models from the Australian Institute of Sport.
Working with Cloncurry PCYC to deliver On the
Ball in Cloncurry, more than 40 youth attended the
first program during the April school holidays.
This number grew to 51 for the December
workshops, demonstrating the successful
introduction of Stride Foundation and their
programs to the community.
Due to its success, we will continue to support the
Sport for Life program in Cloncurry and Mount Isa
in 2014 with an additional $85,000, taking our total
funding contribution over four years to $375,000.
Eleanor Cesari, Program Manager at Stride
