BOC are proud and passionate supporters of Child Cancer Foundation, a national cancer charity that provides assistance to children, young people and their families through the cancer journey and Road Safety Education (RSE) program, a community-based, specialist education initiative providing driver safety education to secondary school students. Please see below for more information about these organisations.
Child Cancer Foundation
Child Cancer Foundation provides strength and comfort to families, parents and children impacted by child cancer.
For more than 40 years, Child Cancer Foundation has supported families across New Zealand. With three children being diagnosed with cancer each week in New Zealand, Child Cancer Foundation provides personalised, essential and practical support for the whole family.
BOC staff and families are committed to doing what they can to help the inspirational Child Cancer Foundation (CCF) team. Volunteering at CCF events and fundraising activities are just a few ways we will lend a hand.
Child Cancer Foundation doesn’t receive any government funding and rely entirely supporters such as business partners and donors to support children with cancer and their loved ones.
Only announcing our partnership in January 2020, BOC are looking forward to working with Child Cancer Foundation and building a rewarding and meaningful relationship well beyond 2020.
Road Safety Education (RSE)
Road Safety Education Limited (RSE) is a not-for-profit organisation that delivers highly effective, evidence-based road safety education programs which adhere to recognised “best practice” guidelines to reduce the incidence of youth road trauma in our communities.
BOC became the founding sponsor of RSE and the RYDA Program when it was a small yet growing community initiative. Through the sponsorship money BOC have contributed, RSE have been able to expand the program from being a local NSW initiative to venues across Australia and New Zealand. We are most proud to be the Founding Sponsor of RSE and the RYDA Program.
RYDA, the flagship program, involves six interactive sessions presented by road safety professionals. At the RYDA Program, attendees hear first-hand from the experts:
Drug & Alcohol Counsellors
The program has great synergies with BOC’s own safe driving culture – a key reason why the company is so passionate in supporting the development of this important youth education initiative for younger drivers.
As part of BOC’s genuine commitment, we also provide our employees with internal safety schemes, such as the benchmarked BOC Driver Safety programme, which promotes safe driving behaviour 100% of the time.
