Kennards For Kids – Hiring for our future

Kennards For Kids – Hiring for our future

Monday, September 16, 2013

For more than 60 years, Kennards Hire has been a well-known and much loved name amongst tradespeople and DIY enthusiasts throughout Australia. Combining high quality tools and equipment with high quality advice, Kennards are in the business of making your job easy. Now, for the first time, Kennards Hire has taken the exciting step across the Tasman, to set up shop in New Zealand.

Kennards For Kids is a long running charity initiative, and since arriving on New Zealand’s shores, they have decided to extend a helping hand to a local children’s charity. For every hire made from a Kennards Hire store in NZ during October and November, KidsCan Charitable Trust will receive $2 from Kennards!

As a family-owned business, Kennards are passionate about providing kids with the best start to life possible. It is this belief in the potential of our kids that led the company to donate over a quarter of a million dollars to various children’s charities and organisations in last year’s Australian campaign alone.

Tom Kinross, GM of Kennards General Hire in NZ, thinks that it is vital that kids are given every chance at success in life. “We believe that it’s all about breaking negative cycles early on in a child’s life,” Kinross stated. “Kennards For Kids started because it allows us to help the youth in our communities realise their potential. It really is the most rewarding part of what we do.”

Jan Clark, GM of Marketing & Fundraising with KidsCan, is thrilled to be involved with the Kennards For Kids initiative. “We feel privileged to be the chosen NZ charity to work with the team from Kennards to bring to life this fundraising initiative,” Clark explained. “The funds raised during this period will allow KidsCan to continue to support the programmes we provide in 350 low decile schools throughout New Zealand.”

You can throw your support behind Kennards For Kids and the KidsCan Charitable Trust by visiting your local Kennards Hire outlet and hiring equipment for your spring-clean, building or renovation project throughout October and November.
