BOC, a member of The Linde Group, and Redkite, a charity that supports children and young people throughout the entire cancer journey, are celebrating their long-term partnership which has spanned two decades and raised almost $2m.
Since becoming Redkite’s first corporate sponsor, the Tier One company has helped the organisation grow into a leading provider of essential support services for young people with cancer and their families – from the moment of diagnosis until after treatment finishes.
John Evans, BOC South Pacific Managing Director, said BOC is proud to have supported Redkite for the past 20 years through many different volunteering and compay fundraising activities.
“The success of this partnership has been driven by the passion of the Redkite team who provide critical support to children and families every day – as well as the commitment shown by BOC employees across Australia to support this very important cause. There have been many highlights, however as the Principal Sponsor the Redkite Corporate Quiz, it has been incredibly rewarding to be a part of this annual activity that has raised over $10 million.”
“We are also very grateful to our many BOC employees who have participated in Kitetime, a workplace initiative that encourages them to take annual leave and donate the pay from these hours to Redkite – as well as the many fun runs, competitions and fundraising efforts.”
Jenni Seton, Redkite’s CEO said BOC and its staff have shown unwavering support and generosity which has helped thousands of families facing cancer. Adding, “BOC was Redkite’s very first corporate partner, and over twenty generous years, they have had a huge impact on generations of families facing childhood cancer.”
