Corporate Gift Box & Florist Supports Life Education

Published: Thu 15 Jul 2021 12:59 PM
For over 30 years Life Education has been educating and empowering kids in New Zealand to make positive choices. In a world where children are increasingly being exposed to products such as Vaping and with ready access to unhealthy content online, providing kids with information that allows them to make positive choices around health, the human body and how to be a good friend is as important as ever.
Wayne and Melanie Kennerley, through their business Kennerley Gourmet Grocery, are proud to support Life Education Counties Manukau to foster a space for over 30,000 children annually to learn and explore in unique classrooms about making positive choices.
“With three children ourselves we are aware of the choices they are exposed to every day that may forever change their lives. Enabling kids with information that helps them make the right choices in life to be healthy and successful is important to us. We’ve witnessed the positive work Life Education does, specifically in the Counties Manukau area, and wanted to support that”, said Wayne Kennerley Managing Director of Kennerley Gourmet Grocery.
“Through our business we are fortunate enough to support a wide range of charities and causes, normally this is with one off type donations and by volunteering time to help. Having worked with Life Education Counties Manukau for several years we wanted to provide ongoing support and signing up as a Life Education Partner enabled us to achieve that. I’d encourage businesses, both big and small to find out more and provide ongoing support to charities such as Life Education”.
Lincoln Jefferson, Chief Executive Life Education Counties Manukau said “the ongoing support from Wayne & Melanie Kennerley from their various businesses and brands is a great example of how business can support charities such as ours. Support from a business can come in many forms, be it by providing resources such as staff to help us run events, food or donations and over the years Wayne and Melanie have helped us in all those different ways. We’re grateful for their ongoing support.”
