A token for Early Links

Early Links at Grill'd

By Shanelle Pescud

Marketing & Communication Officer


Early Links was one of three charities that had the opportunity to host a jar for the Grill’d Charlestown Local Matters Program during March. Local Matters allows Grill’d the opportunity to give back to the local community by splitting $500 with three groups to put towards their cause – ours being to support our Big Yellow Bus Appeal.

Our team

Our team went to dinner to help support the Big Yellow Bus renovations, with each of us placing a token into the Early Links jar at Grill’d Charlestown. We met some of the Grill’d crew, Django and Mollie, who jumped in for a quick photo with our team. It was a great way to meet up outside of work, eating delicious burgers, all while supporting our appeal.

Our difference

Here at Early Links, we have a great team culture. There are opportunities to attend many events internally and externally. These include Pinot and Picasso, axe throwing, Christmas parties and staff days with cultural awareness presentations and even excursions to see the sunflowers!
Are you interested in joining our team? Let us know by submitting an expression of interest on our careers page. We would love to have you onboard!

Supporting us

We have loved hearing that you have placed your local matters token into our jar at Grill’d Charlestown and would like to take this opportunity to thank you for supporting us.
If you were unable to get to Grill’d but still would like to help, you can do so by making a donation.

Thank you

We would like to extend our appreciation to Grill’d Charlestown and our Early Links team for making this all possible. A special mention to Alana, our Grants and Sponsorship Officer, for seeking this amazing opportunity.


We are happy to announce that we had the most tokens for the month and are the Local Matters winner! As a result, Grill’d Charlestown will contribute $300 towards our Big Yellow Bus Appeal. This contribution will ensure that this mobile playground, including a flying fox, rock-climbing wall and slide, will be enjoyed by children for years to come.
