Kennards Hire, has kicked off its annual charity initiative, ‘Kennards For Kids’, to help sick and disadvantaged children across Australia and New Zealand, helping to give them the best chance at life they can.
Running throughout March and April,Kennards Hire aims to help sick and disadvantaged children across Australia and New Zealand, helping to give them the best chance at life they can.
For almost 20 years, the family owned business has raised millions of dollars for carefully selected children’s charities through the Kennards for Kids charity campaign. This year, $2.00 from every hire, both in branch and online, will again be donated to some very worthy organisations.
In 2017, Kennards will be donating Kennards for Kids proceeds to Variety - the Children's Charity in both South Australia and Victoria, The Constable Care Child Safety Foundation (WA), HeartKids (ACT), Red Kite (NSW), the Children’s Hospital Foundation (QLD), Kidsafe NT and KidsCan in New Zealand.
In previous years, the funds donated to these charities have provided a real and tangible difference. They have helped purchase Variety Sunshine Coaches, supported at-risk children and families with the supply and installation of age-appropriate child car restraints through Kidsafe NT and contributed to building the Nundah Cottages in Queensland, which provides specialist mental health services to children and young people.
“The Kennards team has a strong and generous community spirit and we believe that we are in a position to help those that need it the most,” said Angus Kennard, CEO of Kennards Hire.
“Kennards for Kids first took place back in 1998 to raise awareness and funds for those organisations and volunteers that are out there day in and day out helping sick and disadvantaged children and their families”
“Every one of us that work at Kennards are proud to get behind the campaign. Every hire will definitely have a higher purpose during March and April and with the help of our customers, we aim to crack our record annual donation of over $367,000,” Angus said.
