> Stott Hoare supports David Wirrpanda Foundation
Jim Loader, Stott Hoare Managing Director, recently presented West Coast Eagles legend David Wirrpanda with a substantial donation to help support the work of the David Wirrpanda Foundation.
"As a well known Eagles supporter, I've had the great opportunity to see David's magic on the football field many times," said Jim.
"However, in his work after football David has proved just what an inspirational leader he is with the success of the David Wirrpanda Foundation.
"Stott Hoare is very pleased to add its support to David and his team's fantastic work with Aboriginal children," said Jim.
