Gemini Accident Repair Centres has directed its franchisees to raise funds for Variety – The Children’s Charity of Queensland by doing what they do every day – repairing cars.
By leveraging its partnership with parts supplier Auto Parts Group, which offered a donation for each of its parts used, Gemini Accident Repair Centres across the nation raised over $33,000 to support Variety Queensland in its mission.
Variety Queensland, known for the Variety Bash, provided nearly $1 million in assistance last year to families in need.
“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 Centres 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 Centres head office on 6 March, 2018.
“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 Bubeck.
