With so much disruption surrounding the Covid-19 crisis, it’s easy to forget the summer from hell that saw unprecedented bushfires ravage most parts of the country.
To support the firefighting volunteers, the Narellan Group raised a total of $18,000 to be provided to firefighting organisations in Victoria, New South Wales and Queensland.
“We’ve all been touched by the tragedy of our recent bushfire crisis,” says Narellan Pools managing director, Chris Meyer. “I am continually overwhelmed by the great values and heart to serve that our Narellan Group franchisees possess and display in their actions.”
The fundraising campaign was kicked off by Narellan Pools Sunshine Coast franchisee, Mark Martin, who pledged to donate a percentage of each pool sold during January to bushfire volunteers – with franchisees across the network quickly following suit.
Martin says that these volunteers have made such as sacrifice to protect people, property and animals across the country. “As a community we wanted to show our respect and appreciation for these brave firefighters,” he says.
Inspired by the generosity of its franchise network, the Narellan Pools Group stepped forward to match franchisee contributions.
“Our community of franchisees continue to inspire us, and calling on us to support the bushfire crisis is no different,” says Meyer.
“We know and trust these organisations will put the funds to great use, and help take care of those remarkable Australians who put their lives on the line for our country.
