Kennards Hire is hoping to make life a little easier for sick, injured or disadvantaged kids around Australia and New Zealand through its nationwide Kennards For Kids campaign.

Throughout September and October, the Kennards For Kids initiative will raise money and awareness for carefully selected children’s charities.

Allen Besseling, CEO of Kennards Hire says as a family-owned business, Kennards is passionate about providing kids with the best start to life possible.

Last year’s Kennards For Kids campaign raised more than $300,000 for various children’s charities and organisations.

For every hire made during September and October, Kennards will donate $2, which will be distributed to selected organisations to help the children who need it most.

Allen Besseling, CEO of Kennards Hire, 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, he said. “We started Kennards For Kids 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.”

This year, support is being extended to charities including Stepping Stone House, Kids Xpress, Variety - the Children’s Charity, the Constable Care Foundation and the Children’s Hospital Foundation.

You can support Kennards For Kids and its charity partners by visiting your local Kennards Hire outlet and hiring equipment for your spring-clean, building or renovation project throughout September and October.
