Known as the “Fresh approach in automotive accident repair”, Gemini Accident Repair Centre’s have taken this company view and applied it to Corporate Social Responsibility. Engaging their franchisees to raise vital funds for Variety – The Children’s Charity of Queensland by doing what they do best, repairing cars.
By leveraging their partnership with leading parts supplier, Auto Parts Group, who offered a donation for each of their parts used; Gemini Accident Repair Centre’s across the nation raised over $33,000 to support Variety Queensland in their vital mission.
Variety Queensland, known for the iconic Variety Bash, provided nearly $1 million in assistance last year to families that are doing it tough. Empowering children who are sick, disadvantaged or have special needs to live, laugh and learn. Through grants of equipment, services and scholarships, Variety is helping more Aussie kids to reach their full potential.
“We are very excited to be partnering with two giants of the car repair world.” Said Variety Queensland CEO, Steve Wakerley. “It was a fantastic example of businesses supporting each other to take a leadership role in their community and we look forward to engaging in this exciting campaign in the future”.
Gemini Accident Repair Centre’s Chief Commercial Officer, Peter Bubeck, and Auto Parts Group Managing Director, Stephen Campbell presented Variety Queensland Board Chairperson John Wadley with a cheque for $33,424.00 at the Gemini Accident Repair Centre’s head office on Tuesday 6th March.
“On behalf of the Gemini Group, I’m honoured to be giving back to the community that has supported our own success. The buy-in from our front-line staff and supplier partner Auto Parts Group in making this a reality was just amazing. Thank you.” Said Peter Bubeck
