H&L Australia is committed to being a proactive member within the local community through its chosen Charity & Sponsorship regime.
We support & sponsor the following organisations...
Variety - The Children's Charity
Although each H&L offices donate to various charities, Variety, the children's charity’s, SA Variety Bash held annually has certainly been the most fun! ”Bashing was created in 1985 by Australian adventurer Dick Smith when he took a group of friends for a drive that he called 'The Bourke to Burketown Bash'. The Bash is an eight day drive in the country with your mates.
It is NOT a race or a rally, it is a madcap event designed to put the 'fun' into fundraising. Vehicles must be in standard condition and manufactured before 1980. H&L Director of Product Development, John Hardy has just completed his 10th Variety Bash and this year alone H&L, with the help of their business and supplier connections, raised $23k. This brings H&L's total contribution to nearly $120,000 over the last ten years! To find out more about SA Variety, the children's charity, click here to visit their website.
