Fenner Supports Daffodil Day in WA
Fenner’s WA teams have been fundraising for Daffodil Day, with combined donations totalling $2,000.
Held on 25 August each year, Daffodil Day gives hope to those affected by all cancers by donating to support a cancer free future.
Fenner’s Kwinana Beach and East Rockingham operations joined together to support the initiative. Conveyor Components and Asset Manager, Craig Matthews, said the fundraising involved Fenner Conveyors, JAF, and Fenner RTO personnel.
“It was a great opportunity to bring together the broader Fenner group. Initiatives like this allow personnel from all across the business - manufacturing, engineering, training, and field service – to connect and show shared support for a worthy cause,” said Matthews.
Fenner’s WA Social Club managed donations through sales of Daffodil Day merchandise, a gold coin morning tea, ‘guess-the-lolly’ jars, and online donations from family and friends.
“We aim to continue our charitable efforts, selecting non-for-profits that work for causes close to our people. It’s important that our people have influence in the charities selected,” explains Matthews.
“There are plans to expand this with family-friendly events, such as fun-runs and activity courses, to build strong connections within teams and ensure all employees feel supported by the business both at-work and in their home-life.”
This is part of Fenner’s focus more broadly of doing its part for community, by activating different initiatives at branches nation-wide.
