Hire for a Higher Purpose
For the past 18 years, the annual Kennards for Kids Charity Campaign has raised funds and awareness for some very well-deserved charities and not-for-profit organisations.
This March and April, $2.00 from every hire, both in branch and online, will be donated to eight different, but extremely worthwhile, charities. You can learn more about each of these very special organisations by clicking on the links below.
With the help of our customers, we’ve raised millions of dollars for some very awesome organisations that help sick and disadvantaged children and their families across Australia and New Zealand.
Every year, around 650 children are diagnosed with cancer in Australia.
Redkite provides their families with much-needed financial, emotional and practical support, from the first day of their child’s cancer diagnosis, throughout treatment, and beyond.
Redkite is a new charity partner for Kennards Hire in New South Wales. We are excited to be helping them through Kennards for Kids this year.
