Bollé Safety has entered a partnership with RACQ CQ Rescue, offering support via a $10,000 sponsorship donation, product supply to crew and staff, and donations from co-branded product sales.

RACQ CQ Rescue is a community-funded rescue helicopter, based in Mackay, QLD, and has been saving lives across an area four times the size of Tasmania for the last 25 years. The service offers rapid response across land and sea and is currently responsible for more than 50 life-saving rescues per month. The operating expenses of maintaining such a service have reached almost $10 million, half of which is fundraised from the community.

The Partnership will provide the important lifesaving service with an additional, ongoing funding stream via the sale of co-branded safety glasses through Bollé Safety’s distributor network: A portion of the profit from every sale will be donated back to CQ Rescue.

“We’re incredibly proud that Bolle Safety’s co-branding innovation technology will help provide additional funding for RACQ CQ Rescue to help support them to provide their vital and lifesaving service across the Mackay, Whitsunday, and Isaac regions,”  Bolle Safety Territory Manager (North Queensland) Brett Rovelli said.

The initiative is intended to increase awareness of CQ rescue services with distributors and end-users as a result of the product itself and associated promotional campaigns across digital, social, printed, and experiential media.

“RACQ CQ Rescue is a vital part of emergency support for all workers in this region and it’s reassuring to know a globally respected brand like Bolle appreciates the value of supporting our helicopter and that with their generous commitment, we can continue to provide our lifesaving service to anyone in a time of crisis,” RACQ CQ Rescue CEO Ian Rowan said.

Bollé Safety will also furnish CQ Rescue staff and crew with essential PPE in the form of donated, cobranded safety eyewear. Widely considered to be a premium safety brand, Bollé Safety is pleased to provide CQ rescue workers with optimum eye protection and comfort while they work to save lives.

Bollé Safety has chosen Rush plus safety spectacles for the initiative, in both clear and smoke lenses. Rush Plus is one of the most popular designs in the Bollé Safety glasses range due to its sporty design, flexible temples, and Platinum Scratch and fog-resistant coating. The Spectacles will have unique temple arms in CQ Rescue Brand colours, and the CQ Logo on the lens.

Cobranded Eyewear is a service offered by Bollé Safety to clients looking for personalised, branded eye protection and includes several models from their spectacles and goggles ranges.

Bollé Safety CQ Rescue Rush Plus glasses are now available from selected local PPE suppliers.
