2020 will be our 5th year of running our Annual Golf Charity day - and what a year it has been.
Quite aptly, tor the first time the proceeds of the Golf Day will go towards the Sir John Kirwan Foundation. The foundation's focus is to build a programme that educates New Zealanders to better understand mental health and how to manage it.
One in five New Zealanders will experience mental health issues before they turn 18. Even those who are otherwise happy, will need skills and knowledge to successfully deal with pressures related to peers, family, relationships and their place in the world.
John Kirwan established the Foundation to equip primary and intermediate students with the knowledge and tools to safeguard and nurture their own mental wellbeing and help others do the same.
Alongside leading experts, we are developing a mental health education programme to ensure schools have the resources and support to teach their students about mental wellness.
Martyn and Tony founded Quadrent over 18 years ago with an intent to make a difference. Not only did they want to make a real difference in the world of equipment finance, but they also wanted to improve the lives of clients and employees.
The Annual Golf Charity day is just one of the ways that Quadrent enacts our values in a tangible way. Over the last 5 years, we have raised $140,000 and that is just the beginning.
