BOC has now enjoyed a ten-year commitment as a major corporate sponsor of Redkite. Our employees continue to actively participate in volunteering requirements and raising funds to support them. Over the years we have seen how valuable the Redkite initiatives have proven for both the affected children and their families. We are most proud to be associated with Redkite in supporting this cause.
BOC became the first major corporate partner of Redkite in 1998, when it was a small yet growing charity then known as The Malcolm Sargeant Cancer Fund for Children.
Our relationship with Redkite is even more special due to the dedication and commitment of BOC staff and their families.
BOC is the major cash sponsor of the Corporate Quiz nights throughout Australia. Employees both attend and volunteer to help at the quizzes.
BOC also supports Redkite throughout the year with various fundraising activities, including donating proceeds raised from the City to Surf and in lieu of receiving Christmas Hampers.
Redkite’s special ‘Family Fun days’ take place throughout the year allowing families to get together and enjoy time out from long hospital stays and treatment regimes. These days offer the opportunity to meet other families who are going through similar experiences related to having a child or young person diagnosed with cancer. Redkite Train Day in Sydney is sponsored by BOC. Employees volunteer their time on the day (barbequing, face painting, food preparation, art and crafts and more), to help children and their families enjoy a day out.
BOC donates its corporate box at the Sydney Cricket Ground for use by Redkite for fundraising during the annual Redkite Cup.
