Hoshizaki Lancer raised money and awareness for the Leukaemia Foundation’s annual World’s Greatest Shave campaign by hosting a variety of fun events.
To kick off the fundraising and donating process, a Yiros lunch was kindly supplied to employees by the company, all proceeds going to the World’s Greatest Shave.
Our bakers got cooking for the cause and filled the bake table with an assortment of sweet treats which were sold during morning tea break. Luckily, our workplace is filled with sweet-tooths, all desserts sold out and a great amount was raised for the Leukaemia Foundation.
Then came the not-so-sweet part when our brave employees shaved or coloured (or both!) their hair!
Hoshizaki Lancer matched the total which was raised by the participants, all in all, close to $5000 was donated to the World’s Greatest Shave campaign by Hoshizaki Lancer.
The money will go towards research, which is needed to find better treatments and cures for leukaemias, lymphomas, myeloma and related blood disorders.
Funds raised will also support families when they need it most, providing leukaemia, patients with a free home-away-from-home near hospital during their treatments.
It will also give Leukaemia Foundation the means to transport patients to their appointments and provide as much practical assistance and emotional support as they can, free of charge.
Thank you to everyone for sponsoring. Your donations will no doubt make a difference and thank you to our team who baked, fundraised, shaved, coloured and donated!
