Buy a tyre and help find a cancer cure

FOR every tyre sold at Bridgestone stores, two dollars will be donated to the Leukaemia Foundation.

The offer will run from March 9-11 as part of Bridgestone's fundraising for the World's Greatest Shave.

In 2015 the same offer raised over $40,000 around Australia and helped fund patient transport vehicles, research and patient accommodation.

Bridgestone Service Centre Lismore owner, Murray Edwards, said small donations go a long way to caring for the wellbeing of blood cancer patients and their families.

"We're extremely proud to be raising funds as part of the World's Greatest Shave this year and hope the local community will rally around us in support of the Leukaemia Foundation's vital work," he said.

"If you're in need of some new tyres there's really no better time to make a purchase then on March 9, 10 or 11 when you can simultaneously help raise funds for a great cause.

"We're aiming to surpass last year's fundraising total and with a little assistance from the local community, I'm confident we'll achieve that."

Employees at a number of Bridgestone stores have also chosen to be brave and shave, hosting shave events and sausage sizzles in March.

The World's Greatest Shave tyre offer is valid for purchases of all passenger, SUV and light truck tyres.

Bridgestone Australia celebrates a 30 year partnership with the Leukaemia foundation this year.
