4 Jan 2012

AE Smith was amongst those who donated their time, resources and money to provide much needed support to patients requiring specialised transport to and from hospital and medical appointments – one of the many services offered by the Kidney Support Network.

The Kidney Support Network is a community based charity that provides information and resources, transport and accommodation and support groups to those affected by kidney disease.

AE Smith were quick to rally with other local organisations to sponsor the much needed transport vehicle to help Mackay patients, who rely on the Kidney Support Network’s transport services.

“We happily donated the time of subcontractors to help install a special hydraulic lift chair in the Kidney Support van,” says Mike Mulherin, General Manager, AE Smith Mackay.

“We’re always keen to either donate our time, resources or skills to help our community and it’s great to see this van in use,” adds Mike.
