Hire for a Higher Purpose: Redkite and Kennards for Kids




Leading equipment hire brand, Kennards Hire, is geared up and ready to kick off their annual charity initiative, ‘Kennards For Kids’, beginning 1 March. Running throughout March and April, the company aims to help sick and disadvantaged children across Australia and New Zealand, helping to give them the best chance at life they can.


"The team at Redkite are very excited to be part of the Kennards for Kids campaign for the first time this year,” says Monique Keighery, General Manager of Fundraising and Marketing at Redkite.


“It's a smart initiative that will make a significant difference to the lives of children with cancer and their families,” says Ms Keighery.

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.

“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.

“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.

Anyone can throw their support behind Kennards for Kids and its charity partners. Simply visit your local Kennards Hire branch or online and hire some equipment for any building, renovation or DIY project you might have coming up throughout March and April.
