On the road with the Gremlin

A quick update on how Kyocera supported team ‘Gremlin’ is holding up on the road, traversing through Queensland for the Variety Bash

Having left the town of Emerald on Monday 5 August, the Gremlin team are having a blast travelling through Queensland trying to raise $25,000 for Variety.

On the road they’ve encountered minor aches and pains in the old car, but nothing serious enough to slow them down significantly. Day three and four saw them through Stonehenge and Winton. Despite a potentially faulty gearbox and a busted rear shock absorber, they’re still battling through!

Gremlin Parade

The weekend took them to Mt Isa with the Gremlins parading in the Mt Isa Rodeo Parade on Friday 10 August.

Look out for our next post, which will wrap up how the Kyocera supported team ‘Gremlin’ went in the 2013 Queensland Variety Bash!

KYOCERA raises funds for Cancer Council whilst cooking up a Masterchef feast.

Kyocera recently held a Master Chef competition at our Sydney HO. Participants were tasked with creating a dish that would suitably feed some hungry but harsh judges.  Competition was fierce and a feast was had by all!

 A variety of cuisine from all around the world competed to be crowned the winner of  Kyocera Master Chef 2012. The accounts team representatives Marilyn and Jon brought a taste of Asia with San Choy Bow and Satay chicken.

IT was represented by Paul with his Apple and Rhubarb Crumble, whilst the sales team sent Suzanne with her mini passionfruit cheesecakes, which were a firm favourite.

Reigning champion from 2011, Nelson from IT, said ” Competition this year was tough. I saw one person eat dessert before their main course!”

The winner was a sticky date pudding with caramel sauce and crunchy praline, baked by Rebecca from the Finance team. 

During our Master Chef competition the social club sold teddy bears, pens and other Daffodil Day merchandise. The receipts from sales were donated to a the Cancer Council’s Daffodil Day which raises funds for cancer research and financial assistance for cancer patients and their families. KYOCERA Document Solutions Australia has participated in this charity event since 2001 and will continue to actively support Daffodil Day in the future.
