Bruce & Denise Morcombe with their new Isuzu MU-X 

Entering their fifth year of partnership, Isuzu Ute Australia (IUA) has provided a new Isuzu MU-X to child safety education champions Bruce and Denise Morcombe. MU-X will be used to take their curriculum to school children and parents across Australia.

“Isuzu UTE take its corporate social responsibility very seriously, especially in the area of Child Protection and the Daniel Morcombe Foundation is extremely thankful for their generous sponsorship in providing us with a brand new MU-X,” the not-for-profit charity co-founder Bruce Morcombe said.

Daniel Morcombe’s legacy is the Foundation named in his honour. It has provided child safety education and awareness to millions of Australian children. The Foundation, developed by and working with Queensland’s Department of Education, Training and Employment aims to teach children about personal safety and awareness by focusing on three key safety messages: Recognise, React and Report. It is hoped other states and territories will soon adopt this curriculum.

“The amazing and tireless efforts of Bruce, Denise and their Foundation has not only made our communities safer, but saved lives, so being able to play a part in this success gives everyone here at IUA a great sense of pride – helping people who help others is a very easy thing to do,” IUA’s Assistant General Manager of Marketing & PR Dave Harding told us.
