Kennards Hire Honoured with Variety International Corporate Award

Kennards Hire has been honoured with the highly sought after Variety International Corporate Award for their philanthropy in South Australia as a Gold Bash Sponsor and through its annual Kennards for Kids initiative.

Presented at the Variety Global International Conference, held recently in Atlanta, the Variety International Corporate Award is the most prestigious award for any company to receive. It is presented to only a handful of corporate supporters of Variety - the Children’s Charity worldwide each year.

Mark McGill, CEO of Variety SA, said, “We are thrilled that Kennards Hire has been formally recognised by Variety International with a prestigious Corporate Award for the extraordinary commitment they have made to supporting children in need in South Australia.”

“Over the past 9 years, through the annual Kennards for Kids campaign and in more recent times as a Gold Bash sponsor, nearly $400,000 has been gifted to Variety that will directly enhance the lives of children who desperately need our support, and Kennards Hire has answered that call.”

Variety - the Children’s Charity is dedicated to improving the lives of sick or special needs children by providing resources for families, education, after school activities and camps. As only the 6th recipient of this award for Variety SA since their inception 34 years ago, it is a truly remarkable achievement for the Kennards Hire team.

“Our team always enjoy working with Variety SA since we’re able to see the difference they make in our community and how greatly they are impacting the lives of sick kids,” said General Manager of Kennards Hire South Australia Gareth Vines.

Once again, Kennards Hire teams and their customers have gone above and beyond to raise funds for Variety - the Children’s Charity, with the Kennards for Kids campaign raising $25,000 to help provide scholarships to talented kids in South Australia who are living with a disadvantage.
