Having just donated more than 195 white goods valued at over $55,000 to the Salvation Army Victorian Bush Fire Appeal to assist affected families pick up the pieces, the white goods and electrical appliances rental franchise was quick to support the next worthy cause.
Franchises around the country welcomed neighbouring businesses, customers, family, friends and the public for beverages, morning tea, sausage sizzles and a visit from the Mr Rental mascot.
"Every dollar raised at the Mr Rental Biggest Morning Tea has been matched dollar for dollar by our founders, Glen and Kerrianne Hickman, totaling a donation of $2974", said Mr Payne.
"In the current economic climate, it is always the charities that start to suffer and as a franchise we are so grateful to all the local businesses and people who joined our teams in supporting this worthy cause", he said.
