Spirit of Mateship initiative by Baillie Lodges to benefit communities

New ongoing initiative to support regional community partners

Baillie Lodges, the collection of seven luxury lodges including the recently reopened Southern Ocean Lodge on Kangaroo Island, has launched a new initiative designed to offer mateship and connection to its regional community partners.

The Baillie Lodges Spirit of Mateship program is a new, ongoing initiative for the collection of luxury lodges to raise funds for nominated community, health, education and conservation organisations in each of the
lodge’s locations.

As part of the program, Baillie Lodges will auction three-night stays at each lodge, with all proceeds from the winning bids pooled and divided equally amongst the seven chosen community organisations. The initiative will run biannually starting in February this year, offering guests a chance to contribute to the people and places in which they holiday.
