HorsePower Hills has infrastructure, policies and practices that are economically and environmentally sustainable. We plan for today and for 50 years in the future.
Horsepower Hills’ major source of income for the past 10 years is from fundraising activities with the Telethon Community Cinemas (TCC).
The Telethon Community Cinemas provide affordable community outdoor cinemas that are family-friendly all across Perth and it proudly donates all of its profits to charities! HorsePower Hills is very lucky to be one of these charities. HorsePower Hills volunteers and the team at TCC work together to set up the cinemas, ensure each event runs smoothly and assist in packing away the facilities every year.
TCC shows many fun family movies, old and new, during the school holidays. For the list of locations and movies currently showing check out the Telethon Community Cinemas website.
HorsePower Hills participates in the WA Government’s Containers for Change program and receives donations from community members, groups and businesses who drop off their containers at refund points across Western Australia using the HorsePower Hills code C102 407 48. A Containers for Change bin is on-site at the Sawyers Valley riding centre.
For every drink container dropped off we receive the 10c refund as a donation. For more information on how the Containers for Change program works please visit https://www.containersforchange.com.au/wa/how-it-works.
