Kennards Hire is proud to announce that they have increased their support for KidsXpress Life in 2016. Marking their 11th year of support for the charity, and the ‘Kennards For Kids’ initiative, Kennards Hire have donated an additional $70,000 to KidsXpress Life. This is in addition to the $30,000 already committed as part of Kennards For Kids - making a total commitment of $100,000 this year alone. KidsXpress Life use the money to help vulnerable kids within the community.
Angus Kennard, Non Executive Director of Kennards Hire, believes it is vital that kids are given every chance at success in life, and it’s even more crucial to be able to give back to the community as a business.
“We believe that it’s all about breaking negative cycles early in a child’s life, and KidsXpress are inspirational in their efforts, ” Angus said. “Kennards For Kids was created in order to help youth in our communities realise their potential.”
Margo Ward, Founder and CEO of Sydney Based Charity KidsXpress Life, appreciates the ongoing commitment and support that Kennards Hire shows to this cause.
“It is difficult to truly express how much Kennards Hire’s ongoing and extremely generous support means to us, the kids we support as well as their families and community,” Margo explained. “Kennards for Kids makes a massive difference - not just for now, but for now on in the life of our kids!”
“For many of our kids they think no-one cares, no-one notices their pain and anxiety. The support from Kennards Hire and the Kennards for Kids Campaign not only raises valuable funds for our programs but sends an important message of belief and hope to our kids,” Margo added.
The Kennards For Kids Initiative
For every hire made during the months of September and October, Kennards Hire branches around NSW donate $2 straight to KidsXpress Life. While Kennards Hire’s main charity drive each year is Kennards For Kids, local branches are also involved in a range of independent community based projects, such as schools, and environmental causes.
