It’s been another big year for LeasePlan's Carn the Kids program. In 2016, LeasePlan’s partnerships with the North Melbourne Football Club and Melbourne Victory Football Club saw LeasePlan host more than 1030 kids and their carers at nine events across the country.
At Carn the Kids events, LeasePlan invites a group of children and their parents - identified through our strong relationships with various hospitals, care agencies and charities to come along and have a fun day out.
We provide team flags, face-painting and have players come and visit and sign autographs. LeasePlan also sponsor meal vouchers to ensure everyone has opportunity to enjoy the traditional pie at the footy, plus all kids get a fun pack to take home. They are always fantastic days, full of smiles.
It gives families who would not normally be able to extend themselves the opportunity to take a day out and enjoy something as simple as a day out. The smiles, laughs and cheers from the kids who come along, are more than rewarding and remind all of us not to take the simple things, like a day at the footy, for granted.
Since the program began, LeasePlan has entertained more than 21,000 kids and carers at a variety of events in every state and territory across the country.
