Scott Carr, General Manager of Laser Group New Zealand, is incredibly proud of the almost $50,000 raised this year for the Mental Health Foundation through fundraising activities.
Laser Group is a leading network of electrical and plumbing contractors in New Zealand and Australia, with 98 members nationally.
"The Mental Health Foundation is a really worthwhile charity. We know the money is going to a good cause and is well used and appreciated," Scott says.
Scott believes what Laser Group is doing for the Mental Health Foundation (MHF) in New Zealand is something other businesses can do too.
Laser Group's relationship with the MHF was inspired following their Australian counterpart's decision to support a non-profit mental health organisation called beyondblue. The Aussie company had a sobering reason for reaching out to beyondblue: they did so after the suicide of a Laser Group employee in Australia.
