LEADING Gold Coast automotive group Von Bibra has accelerated its support for child protection advocate Bravehearts with a leasing partnership for four Nissan fleet vehicles.
The co-branded vehicles will be used by Bravehearts education, training and community engagement teams as it seeks to educate, empower and protect kids and their families affected by child sexual assault.
Von Bibra Group General Manager Wade von Bibra said the three-year deal includes two Nissan Pulsars and two Nissan Dualis cars.
“Von Bibra is a proud supporter of Bravehearts and one that I would like to see continue for years to come,” he said.
“This leasing arrangement is another way we can assist Bravehearts so it can continue the amazing work its does in the community.
“Nissan Australia has been great by getting on board and wanting to play a role in the future protection of Aussie kids. They were aware of our partnership with Bravehearts and were happy to offer support.”
Bravehearts Chief Operating Officer Mark Blanks thanked Von Bibra Group for its continued commitment.
“This is a true community-inspired partnership that directly benefits the children and their families on the Gold Coast who depend on Bravehearts and our services,” he said.
“Bravehearts aims to empower, educate and protect by providing healing and support, engendering child sexual assault prevention and protection strategies; advocating for understanding and promoting increased education and research.
“The partnership has resulted in the personal safety education of more than 2000 Gold Coast kids who are now safer after attending Bravehearts’ acclaimed personal safety education program Ditto’s Keep Safe Adventure show.”
The program is delivered in childcare centres and lower primary and has educated 5180 local kids in the last 12 months. By the end of the year almost 25,000 children in SEQ will know about protective behaviour safety education.
