Kings in the community.
Community support is a King family tradition.
As Michael explains: “You’re a product of your parents. My mum and dad were very active in the community, as were my grandparents. It goes back generations; it’s part of our DNA.”
Today, the new generation honours this tradition with commitment and action.
“It’s about what we can do to help people have really positive experiences while they live in Geelong,” says Beth King. “We’re not just involved when somebody dies, it’s about being involved with the organisations that make this a great place to live – a part of life here.”
“In some ways being actively involved in the community is just an extension of our work – it’s just helping out in a different way.” — Michael King
And it’s not just about dollars and donations. The Kings family have given freely of their time and talents, serving in public office and as active contributors to numerous boards and committees.
They are recognised as trusted people you can turn to. As Louise King points out: “People expect us to help out – and from our point of view it’s nice to be in the community that way.”
