Both Markus and Marika Preston, attended a ‘Thank you’ evening for our recent donation for use of 1 x SuperCranes and 2 x SuperElevate for the setting up of ‘Captain Starlight’s Rocket’ for the Sydney VIVID festival, supporting the Starlight Foundation.
A few months ago Preston Hire was approached by Lend Lease to provide cranes to assist with installing Captain Starlights Rocket, Preston Hire donated 1 x SuperCranes and 2 x SuperLift to assist with the project.
Paul Mandeno (National Sales Manager), Steve Bowden (Hire Co ordinator) and Jason Powter (National Sales / BDM SuperSiteStorage™ & SuperLift™) handled this project with Jason leading the charge and even coming down to Sydney and staying until the project was completed.
If you follow Instagram our Preston Hire account @preston_hire you will have seen our SuperCrane and SuperElevates assisting in installing The Rocket, it certainly one of the more interesting jobs Preston Hire have been involved in.
The Starlight Foundations mission is to brighten the ‘lives of sick kids’. They state that “When a once-bright life becomes dulled by needles, hospital visits and painful treatments, Starlight helps sick kids forget their illness and re-discover the joy of childhood”.
Medical treatment is only part of the picture when it comes to the wellbeing of a seriously ill child, and while health professionals focus on treating the illness, Captain Starlight is the super hero who captures a sick kids imagination and creates a healing environment filled with entertainment, fun, laughter and joy, as Captain Starlight comes from a planet with no sickness
Its not always possible for Preston Hire to get involved in every charity initiative that comes our way but please always send through requests you receive and we will see what we can do.
Preston Hire encourages everyone in NSW if you get the chance to get into town and see the VIVID festival, its fantastic, and make sure you venture inside Captain Starlights Rocket….. its a fun ride.
