ABOUT US

Excellent Thursday is about taking a step back from your everyday working life, and starting the Easter long weekend with friends and fellow members in your network as well as a great chance to make new connections!  It’s about bringing people together as a community the day before Good Friday to enjoy a long lunch that once was – by taking advantage of our great foodie culture, all while raising money for a good cause.  Come along for the ride and be surprised by the new charity we choose each year!

COMMUNITY

A group of coworkers in Melbourne would come together Thursday before Easter and enjoy a long lunch, forming a tradition that was seen as an opportunity to revive some old values whilst giving back to others in the community.

EASTER SPIRIT

Consuming copious amounts of chocolate is our thing, but we thought it important to celebrate the spirit of Easter together and not only enjoy the chocolate favours but to help others that may not be able to enjoy the holiday period without our help. 

AWARENESS

We forget to slow down and take a breath like everyone & that’s what Excellent Thursday is about, Excellent Thursday helps celebrate, acknowledge and inform others of the efforts and fine work that charities, their workers and volunteers do for our community. 

GIVING BACK

Our aim is to celebrate the little things in life in the spirit of Easter, our purpose and goal is to bring awareness and support to a chosen charity each year. 100% of the funds raised from all our events are donated to the chosen charity.
