Bacchus has always maintained a strong interest in community issues and the causes of others.
For the last 5 years Bacchus has pledged its support to Multiple Sclerosis and the F5m charity to raise $5million towards MS Research. Over a 5 year period Rick has organised groups of bike riders to participate in the annual Gong cycle ride. Collectively they have raised over $150,000 for MS Research.
Bacchus is a member of Support Act Ltd, a non government organisation supporting the welfare and benevolence of Australian musicians.
Bacchus is a passionate supporter and financial contributor to community radio station 94.5 FBi.
Bacchus is a financial contributor and participant to the LBW cricket trust and its functions, providing educational scholarships and training for the underprivileged.
Bacchus is a supporter of Hospital Health Care Activities who have been supplying computer and interactive games to children and adults' wards in hospitals throughout Australia since 2009, a wonderful program that keeps patients occupied while they recover, making their stay in Hospital a little brighter.
Bacchus is a sponsor of the Hummingsong Rhythm & Song concert, the proceeds of which go to Delvena and Bringa women and children’s refuges (located on the lower north shore of Sydney). These refuges provide crisis accommodation, information, support, advocacy and referral for a range of issues facing families in need of assistance as a result of domestic violence.
And, of course, Bacchus is a sleeve sponsor of the Western Suburbs Magpies.
