Origin continues its support for the CFSVA
Origin Energy, Australia’s largest energy retailer, has signed on as a sponsor of the Country Fire Service Volunteers Association (CFSVA) for its fourth consecutive year.
The ongoing sponsorship agreement was announced by Marc Sneddon, Regional Manager for Origin LPG in South Australia on Tuesday 9 August at an event at the Oakbank/Balhannah CFS.
The event was attended by volunteers from the brigade and local Origin LPG representatives.
Wendy Shirley, Executive Director of the CFSVA, welcomed the ongoing sponsorship of the association. "Origin has been a strong supporter of the CFSVA for a number of years, and it is fantastic this will continue in 2011. The much-needed funds will assist the CFSVA to support our members."
In addition, the local community also has the support of Origin LPG’s authorised dealer network. Origin introduced a new sponsorship program in conjunction with Lenswood Gas to support local Adelaide Hills CFS brigades. For every customer who switches to Origin LPG, Origin will contribute $25 to that customer’s local (nominated) Adelaide Hills brigade (Lenswood, Forest Range, Oakbank/Balhannah, Woodside or Lobehtal) plus a further $5 per cylinder for each subsequent cylinder order.
Origin also advised that existing Lenswood Origin LPG customers could register their support by providing the name of their local Adelaide Hills brigade and Origin would contribute $5 on their behalf.
Marc Sneddon says, "These are the first CFS brigade to trial this offer which we hope to roll out to other brigades across South Australia. We have over 60 employees within Origin’s South Australian LPG network, so supporting the local community that supports our business is important to us."
Chris Tanner, Acting Captain of Oakbank/Balhannah looks forward to a new fundraising effort for the brigade. "It is good to see Origin getting behind CFS volunteers. We are happy to trial this project and hope that other brigades will also benefit."
