Bridgestone Service Centre Benalla is digging deep for people with blood cancer and their loved ones by donating $2 from every tyre sold during three days in March to the Leukaemia Foundation.
The tyre offer will run from March 15 to 17 as part of Bridgestone’s fundraising for this year’s World’s Greatest Shave.
With the support of communities across Australia, the tyre offer raised $44000 for the World’s Greatest Shave last year and helped fund patient transport vehicles, research and patient accommodation.
Bridgestone Service Centre Benalla owner Tony Sait said the seemingly small donations would go a long way to caring for the wellbeing of people with blood cancer and their families.
‘‘We’re extremely proud to be raising funds as part of the World’s Greatest Shave this year and hope the local community will rally around us in support of the Leukaemia Foundations vital work,’’ Mr Sait said.
‘‘If you’re in need of some new tyres there’s really no better time to make a purchase than on March 15, 16 or 17 when you can simultaneously help raise funds for a great cause.
‘‘We’re aiming to surpass last year’s fundraising total and with a little assistance from the local community, I’m confident we’ll achieve that.’’
A number of Bridgestone stores have also chosen to be brave and shave pulling out their hair clippers and firing up their barbecues in March to host shave events and sausage sizzles.
The World’s Greatest Shave tyre offer is valid for purchases of all passenger, SUV and light truck tyres.
