FulGaz donate’s $4,000 to Koala Life

Monday 5 February, 2024

FulGaz is thrilled to announce a $4,000 donation to the Koala Life Foundation. Based in Adelaide, South Australia, Koala Life is a not-for-profit organisation established to support research into koala management and conservation, the overall purpose to secure the survival of the koala for Australia. This charitable contribution is made on behalf of none other than Phil Liggett, a renowned figure in the cycling world and our good friend.

Phil, a celebrated commentator and cycling enthusiast, has long been associated with promoting the beauty and thrill of cycling. His support has been an instrumental part of the journey of FulGaz. Now, through FulGaz’s philanthropic gesture, Liggett’s commitment to both cycling and environmental conservation is taking a new dimension.

As a token of our appreciation, on a recent visit to Adelaide for the Tour Down Under, FulGaz founder , Mike Clucas met with Phil Liggett to present him with a $4000 cheque for this foundation so close to his heart.

“You won’t believe just how excited Dr Chris West (Director of Koala Life) is to receive this generous donation”. Phil continues “After the disastrous fires on South Australia’s Kangaroo Island almost eliminated the entire population of Koalas a few years ago, the few orphaned babies rescued have been reared to parenthood, meaning that Australia’s most iconic animal will soon roam freely again.”

FulGaz is proud to stand alongside Phil and the Koala Life Foundation, directing our donation to aid in the protection and rehabilitation of koalas. As a company deeply rooted in the cycling community, we recognize the importance of preserving the natural habitats that make outdoor cycling so special.
