Sirron Holdings Group and Taren Cleaning Supplies announce multi-year partnerships with The Kids’ Cancer Project.

The Kids’ Cancer Project is proud to announce multi-year partnerships with Sirron Holdings Group – a leading manufacturer and distributor of catering equipment and Taren Cleaning Supplies – a company specialising in the supply of quality cleaning, safety and hygiene products to industry groups including childcare.

Sirron Holdings is a community-focussed enterprise known for its position on sustainability in its operations and support to the vulnerable. The company exists because of its “leave the place better than we found it” values with a focus on providing high performance products that are gentle on both users and the environment.

Callan Gates, National Business Manager says:

At Sirron Holdings, we believe every child should have the chance to realise their potential.

That is why we have partnered with The Kids’ Cancer Project and plan to play a vital role in finding kinder, more effective treatments for children with cancer.

- Callan Gates, National Business Manager

The Kids’ Cancer Project is a national charity supporting bold scientific research that has the greatest chance of clinical success in the improvement of treatments of childhood cancer; the disease that kills more Australian kids than any other.

Business pivot that paved the way

Now more than ever, the importance of hand hygiene is an essential activity in our day-to-day life. This renewed focus on hand care led Sirron Holdings to develop a range of hand care products and dispensers for childcare centres which has provided the company with the perfect vehicle to promote the work of The Kids’ Cancer Project. Sue Saunders, Product Manager at Sirron Holdings explains:

We are offering childcare centres the opportunity to join our hand hygiene program, where hand dispensers are installed and retail products such as hand and body soaps, hand sanitiser and moisturiser are supplied ongoing.

The Kids’ Cancer Project will not only benefit from a percentage of those sales but the hand dispenser design includes The Kids’ Cancer Project logo, to raise awareness about the charity and its work.

This is something we are really passionate about and will be communicating right through the supply chain.

We are truly excited to be working with The Kids’ Cancer Project and supporting childhood cancer research, not only with revenue but to get the news out about the great work they do as well.

- Callan Gates, National Business Manager

Sirron Holdings and Taren Cleaning Supplies have been working closely together for the past seven years offering new and innovative products to the childcare and disability sectors. The Zexa Clean hand hygiene range was developed to deliver a safe, affordable and Australian made hygiene solution for our customers.

Taren proudly supporting Pirate Day

Taren is very proud to announce support of The Kids’ Cancer Project Pirate Day.

Pirate Day is a national dress up day to raise awareness and funds for kids’ brain cancer research. The annual event takes place in May every year to align with Brain Cancer Awareness Month.

While many childcare centres around Australia already know of and participate in The Kids’ Cancer Project Pirate Day, Taren will be actively encouraging all their customers to say “Arrrgh!” with a cuddly incentive.

We are very excited to be involved in this fun and impactful day.

All Taren childcare customers that participate in 2022 Pirate Day will receive one of The Kids’ Cancer Project “Orlando” Pirate Bears to be a mascot for their centre, helping to increase awareness of both Pirate Day and The Kids’ Cancer Project Bear program.

In addition to the existing Pirate Day fundraising activities, Taren will be offering a Pirate Bubble Bath for sale to families, staff, and friends, with 100% of the profits being donated to The Kids’ Cancer Project.

People will be able to buy the new Pirate Day bubble bath on the Taren website Pre-ordering will commence from February 2022 with shipment of the product from May 2022 to align with Pirate Day. Murray continues:

As our daily focus is childcare, we are all too aware of the impact of childhood cancer and the devastating effects it has on families and the community.

Upon becoming aware of the great work that The Kids’ Cancer Project does in providing funding for childhood cancer research, we at Taren felt the need to contribute and get involved with this project.

I’m particularly impressed with their Bear program, where people can donate a teddy to children in hospital – it’s a small but vitally important way to assist with children’s wellbeing. We plan to facilitate helping as many children as possible in receiving those bears.

Owen Finegan, The Kids’ Cancer Project CEO, is equally thrilled with the two new partnerships.

The Kids’ Cancer Project is incredibly grateful to be able to partner with Sirron Holdings Group and Taren Cleaning Supplies.

- Owen Finegan, CEO The Kids' Cancer Project

Our shared beliefs in the importance of putting children first makes for an excellent partnership.

Our work is focused on funding research to discover better cancer treatments for Australian children. It can’t be survival at any cost – it’s about finding better cancer care so that children survive and thrive.
