We are delighted to announce that Bridgestone New Zealand has recently become a major partner of LBC.
Bridgestone New Zealand is part of the Bridgestone Corporation, the world’s leading tyre manufacturer. In New Zealand there is a wide network of retailers, providing a comprehensive range of tyre-related services.
The team at Bridgestone is looking forward to taking part in LBC’s events as well as developing some unique opportunities to fundraise and support our work across the country.
We are proud to have the long-term support of Fidelity Life, the country’s largest New Zealand owned and managed life insurance and savings company.
The team at Fidelity Life show the way in community spirit, raising significant funds for LBC through a variety of fundraising activities. These include event sponsorship of SKYCITY Dining for a Difference, the 100 Hole Golf Marathon Challenge and the Step Up Sky Tower Stair Challenge. The senior management team have all enthusiastically been involved in Shave for a Cure.
PwC has been a key partner of LBC for over a decade. PwC is committed to being a contributing member of society by engaging with communities to create something better for everyone and tackling the complex issues.
PwC has raised more than $700,000 for LBC including supporting the Pork Pie Charity Run and actively holding a biennial Shave for a Cure event with Bell Gully.
More recently, fundraising activities have been co-ordinated through the company’s community involvement programme The PwC Foundation.
Suzuki is LBC’s vehicle sponsor and currently provides the Support Services team with highly efficient Suzuki Swifts to ensure that they remain mobile at all times to support patients and their families. The cars are based in the LBC Auckland, Waikato, Wellington and Christchurch offices and travel throughout New Zealand.
These vehicles are essential for LBC to continue supporting patients and their families throughout the country. Whether it’s visiting patients at their home or taking them to appointments, travelling to smaller towns to run support groups or picking up supplies so that family members have one less thing to worry about, these cars help provide vital support in so many ways.
Thanks to Suzuki our Support Services coordinators travelled over 72,000 kms in 2014.
Since 2015 Suzuki has also provided two branded cars for our Shave for a Cure campaigns, with Shavees invited to sign the ‘Shavemobiles’ and write messages of hope and encouragement.
Suzuki head office staff and franchisees are also active fundraisers in LBC key events.
We are very pleased to have the ongoing support of one of New Zealand’s leading retail specialist advertising agencies. The .99 creative team provides LBC with innovative ideas and production services for LBC’s campaigns and events.
.99’s level of support enables LBC to invest funds into the much needed care of patients and their families where it is needed the most.
A particular focus of .99’s work is raising awareness of blood cancers and related conditions. This in turn has led to several national and international awards for the campaigns they have produced for LBC helping raise awareness of our work.
