Redkite is a national charity that supports children, young people and their family through the cancer journey. Redkite is there from the moment of diagnosis, throughout the rigorous treatment regimes and beyond by providing vital emotional support, financial relief and educational services.
Redkite provides essential and practical support for the whole family from the moment of diagnosis, throughout treatment and on return home.
BOC staff and families are committed to doing what they can to help the inspirational Redkite team. Volunteering at Redkite events and fundraising activities are just a few ways we lend a hand.
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.
BOC is the major cash sponsor of the Corporate Quiz nights throughout Australia. Employees both attend and volunteer to help at the quizzes.
Our relationship with Redkite is even more special due to the dedication and commitment of BOC staff and their families.
BOC supports Redkite throughout the year with various fundraising activities, including donating proceeds raised from the City to Surf and Kitetime which is an opportunity for staff to take annual leave and their pay for these leave hours is donated to Redkite.
Road Safety Education (RSE)
Road Safety Education Limited (RSE) is a not-for-profit organisation that delivers highly effective, evidence-based road safety education programs which adhere to recognised “best practice” guidelines to reduce the incidence of youth road trauma in our communities.
BOC became the founding sponsor of RSE and the RYDA Program when it was a small yet growing community initiative. Through the sponsorship money BOC have contributed, RSE have been able to expand the program from being a local NSW initiative to venues across Australia and New Zealand. We are most proud to be the Founding Sponsor of RSE and the RYDA Program.
RYDA, the flagship program, involves six interactive sessions presented by road safety professionals. At the RYDA Program, attendees hear first-hand from the experts:
Drug & Alcohol Counsellors
The program has great synergies with BOC’s own safe driving culture – a key reason why the company is so passionate in supporting the development of this important youth education initiative for younger drivers.
As part of BOC’s genuine commitment, we also provide our employees with internal safety schemes, such as the benchmarked BOC Driver Safety programme, which promotes safe driving behaviour 100% of the time.
