Oncology centre benefits from Benmax fundraising efforts

06 10 17

In September, the Benmax NZ team set about raising funds to support the local community by hosting a staff running event. The race attracted great interest from within the company with money donated from offices across New Zealand and Australia.  

Race winner Brian O'Dwyer, chose to donate the funds to the Oncology Centre at Christchurch Hospital.  Following consultation with the head nurse and psychologist at the Centre, the team purchased a number of smartphones and Bluetooth speaker sets so that music can be played during children's therapy sessions. Staff at the Centre were excited by the donation and pleased to make the treatment sessions a little more endurable for the children with the help of music.
