Earlier this year CJD Equipment announced that for every General-Purpose Excavator sold between the 1st of February and the 30th of June, $1000 would be donated to Beyond Blue. Mental health has been a significant issue in our industry, affecting many Australians and now more than ever, organisations like Beyond Blue are providing vital support to people experiencing depression, anxiety and other mental health conditions.
We are so proud to announce that CJD have successfully raised $47,000 for Beyond Blue. The money raised has been donated directly to the Beyond Blue Support Service. It costs $48 to answer one call to the Beyond Blue Support Service, which equates to 979 people directly helped by this donation.
“I would like to say a massive thanks to everyone at CJD Equipment” said Chief Community Officer at Beyond Blue, Patrice O’Brien. “Together you have helped ensure that every contact at the Beyond Blue Support Service is answered. The support service gives every person in Australia the opportunity to talk through his or her personal concerns with a trained mental health professional.”
“On behalf of everyone at Beyond Blue, thank you so much CJD Equipment from the bottom of our hearts.”
Managing Director of CJD Equipment Alan Barnett was equally thrilled with the result of this fundraising initiative.
“I would like to take a moment to thank all the people involved in helping us to make this incredible donation” said Alan. “Thank you to Volvo Construction Equipment for your involvement in this initiative, to our customers for choosing CJD Equipment and Volvo machines to support their business and thank you to the CJD team, for helping us to reach our goals in order to make such a wonderful contribution to a great cause.”
CJD are committed to maintaining a workplace that prioritises the health and wellbeing of our people, customers and the communities in which we operate. We are proud to support such a worthy cause that is so in line with our values.
