MOTOR dealership, Mark White Nissan Amanzimtoti is campaigning to help the community become mobile in more ways than one.

The Change your Wheels, Change your Life initiative, where a percentage from any vehicle sold is put aside to sponsor wheelchairs for nominated people in the community, is now well under way having donated six wheelchairs to the community since April.

The initiative is gaining momentum and recently three pupils from the Durban Open Air School were identified to be recipients for powered­ wheelchairs.

“One wheelchair costs R18 000 and we have about R5 000 in the kitty, so we are calling on local businesses to assist us and perhaps donate towards this growing campaign,” marketing manager, Carol Mathews said.

Anyone willing to assist can contact the dealership on 031 020 0500, or
Join its Facebook page and share with all your friends so this can get out to as many people as possible - the more you share, the more you like and share, the more chances of winning a cruise for two.

Also mobilising the Community Crime Prevention Organisation (CCPO), Mark White Nissan recently upgraded the organisation’s vehicle to assist in its fight against crime.

The dealership has now taken the partnership to the next level and anyone who purchases any vehicle from it will receive a six-month membership to the CCPO, paid in full in advance.

“This is a community service from the number one dealership in KwaZulu-Natal, where the community comes first,” Mathews said.
