Hitachi Construction Machinery Australia (HCA) recently auctioned off five of their ultra-reliable mini excavators raising much needed funds for the Humpty Dumpty Foundation. A children’s charity that, for more than 25 years has been purchasing essential and often life-saving medical equipment for sick and injured children in Paediatric Wards, Neonatal Units, Maternity and Emergency Departments in hospitals across Australia.
Many suppliers of HCA jumped on board to support Humpty and to make the online auction a success by providing discounted services. Hitachi Limited and Hitachi Power Tools donated a two-door fridge and a power tool pack to run a cross promotion for any customers who chose to bid, would in fact go in the draw to win one of two prizes.
All five winning bidders were then given the opportunity to attend the Humpty Dumpty Foundation’s Good Egg Luncheon held in Sydney on March 17th at the Four Seasons Hotel.
“It was a very special thank you luncheon for those who have been great supporters in the previous year,” said Humpty’s General Manager Julia Abbott.
Over $25,000 was raised and donated to Humpty to purchase vital children’s medical equipment. In fact the winning bidders will have input as to what equipment is purchased for selected hospitals.
