At Kennedys, we believe strongly in giving back.
Community support is a part of our team culture that has been instilled in the business from the beginning.
Supporting the communities we live in, and encouraging active kids are just some of the reasons we are proud sponsors of the following organisations:
In 2017, Allan Kennedy led a small group that travelled to a remote region of the 3,200m high Hudad plateau in Ethiopia. NGO Friends of The Hudad is working to improve conditions for an isolated community of 200, focusing on education, clean water and sanitation.
FOTH built a school, and Allan’s team constructed an adjoining toilet block and helped bring fresh water to the site. Before this life-changing work was completed, the community shared its water catchment with cattle, which impacted the health of the entire community, especially the children.
The May 50k
During May 2021, Director Chris Kennedy and Craig Johnson strapped on their sneakers to participate in The May 50k raising funds for life-changing MS research through MS Research Australia and each running 50k over the course of the month.
