The Great Skate

Leading the way against domestic violence

Proteus Leadership was one of the proud sponsors of the Great Skate which took place on Saturday 24th February 2024. The Great Skate was organised to raise funds for Mettle Women Inc. (Mettle), a national gift delivery service employing women who are experiencing homelessness due to domestic and family violence. Mettle equips survivors of domestic and family violence with the skills, confidence and the financial security required to secure and maintain employment and in turn, safe and stable housing.

Des Penny’s son, Mick Penny participated in the Great Skate, skating 100km in one day and raising over $20,000 for Mettle Women and the fight against domestic violence.

About 150 people welcomed him in after finishing his 100km skate, supported by The Lions Club and the Fire Brigade. Members of the Proteus team were also in attendance on the day to support Mick and this truly amazing cause.
