Five-time 24 Hours of Le Mans winner and Bathurst 1000 podium finisher, Oliver Gavin, has signed as an ambassador for Hire A Hubby as he embarks on his second full assault on the Australian V8 Supercars PIRTEK Enduro Cup.
Gavin will showcase Hire A Hubby and its association with the Prostate Cancer Foundation of Australia (PCFA) by proudly carrying the organisations’ logos on his Lucas Dumbrell Motorsport Holden VF Commodore for the duration of his 2015 V8 Supercars campaign.
In Australia, prostate cancer is the most commonly diagnosed form of cancer in males and more than 3000 Australian men die of the disease every year.
With those statistics in mind, Hire A Hubby is working hard to highlight men’s health issues, but particularly the risks associated with prostate cancer, and it will use Gavin’s V8 Supercars programme as a vehicle to raise awareness of the PCFA’s dedicated effort to reduce the impact of the disease on Australian men, their partners, family and the wider community.
Established in Australia as a single-man operation two decades ago, Hire A Hubby has since expanded into a professional and nationally-renowned franchise business due to the unique nature of the service, eye-catching branding and high levels of media exposure.
The company specialises in residential handyman and property maintenance services, with an army of more than 300 franchisees representing the brand and carrying out a host of rejuvenation, renovation, assembly, repair and installation tasks across Australia and New Zealand.
However, Hire A Hubby has wider ambitions and it is offering opportunities to those wanting to make a fresh start with a handyman franchise at home and abroad, with a high-visibility presence at Sandown, Mount Panorama and Surfers Paradise.
Hire A Hubby Director, Brendan Green, said: “Australia’s largest repairs, maintenance and renovation company, Hire A Hubby, has just agreed a new partnership with Oliver Gavin and his Lucas Dumbrell Motorsport V8 Supercar team. The V8s are extremely popular with the Australian public and we see this as a great way to reach our target franchisee audience.
“There are a large number of Hire A Hubby’s 300-plus franchisees who love V8 Supercars and now, through our partnership with Olly, we have a great connection with potential new Hubbies, while also being able to continue our support of the Prostate Cancer Foundation of Australia at the upcoming PIRTEK Enduro Cup events.”
Gavin added: “I’m absolutely thrilled to be launching this new and exciting partnership with Hire A Hubby for my Australian V8 Supercars PIRTEK Enduro Cup campaign. It’s always a privilege to compete on this platform. The V8s have a huge and unparalleled following, both in Australia and further afield. There is an unrivalled passion and enthusiasm for the championship and I believe we have a fantastic opportunity to harness that love for the sport and reach out to potential Hire A Hubby franchises, while also raising awareness for company’s chosen charity, the Prostate Cancer Foundation of Australia at the events.”
Gavin will contest all three rounds of the Australian V8 Supercars PIRTEK Enduro Cup, which consists of the Wilson Security Sandown 500 (11-13 September), Supercheap Auto Bathurst 1000 (8-11 October) and Castrol Gold Coast 600 (23-25 October).
