Community and Foundation
The LJ Hooker Foundation
Our founder, Sir Leslie Hooker, was a great believer in supporting the community. So much so he was knighted in 1973 for services to commerce and the community. His belief and actions in supporting local communities is one of the cornerstones that has seen LJ Hooker become the iconic brand it is today.
The LJ Hooker Foundation is committed to partnering with charitable organisations who share the core values of the wider LJ Hooker network — making a difference to the communities in which we live, work and play.
Our official charity partners fall into three broad commitment categories:
- Advancing health
- Advancing education
- Advancing social and public welfare
Whether you are looking to run an event, have a proposal to join our partner program or just a question about what we do please visit our LJ Hooker Foundation website.
Mr Hooker Bear and the LJ Hooker Marquee
Mr Hooker Bear is the international LJ Hooker mascot and is most commonly seen at community events. Mr Hooker Bear has been part of the LJ Hooker family since 1998 after he was first created for a series of road safety television commercials. Due to his popularity he has since been accredited with his own merchandise range.
LJ Hooker is a big advocate of community-based marketing and we have encouraged our offices and people to play an active role in their local community for many years.
The LJ Hooker marquee is also available and can be used for street fairs, schools fetes, sports carnivals and rotary clubs. The marquees add colour to any outdoor event and are great for providing shelter from the weather, for use as promotional stands or to host a barbecue or cake stall in.
We offer the Mr Hooker Bear suit and marquee free of charge to local schools, community groups and businesses for community events and activities. Requests for this service can be made via your local LJ Hooker office or by emailing the Marketing team on firstname.lastname@example.org
