The dealership that cares

2016-11-30 06:01

MOTOR dealership Mark White Nissan believes in ploughing back into the community and says they have been able to do so thanks to their clients.

Their main community campaign is their “Change your Wheels, Change a Life” campaign, which has also become the company motto.

The campaign, launched in April 2015, is an continuation of their “Change your Wheels, Change a Life - Wheelchair Campaign” where a portion of every vehicle sold is donated to the Mark White Nissan wheelchair foundation. This enables the dealership to hand over a wheelchair to a person in need, once a month.

“The campaign started with a little girl, called Mekayla, from Bobbi Bear, who received the first wheelchair in May 2015. Since then, every month we have handed over at least one and some months, we have handed over two wheelchairs,” Mark White Nissan sales and marketing manager, Carol Mathews said.

Primecare - Homecare & Clinic Furniture, from Cape Town have partnered with the dealership, offering them fantastic prices on the wheelchairs thus enabling them to buy 19 wheelchairs, from May 2015 to September 2016.

The public is invited to join Mark White Nissan on 10 December for yet another wheelchair handover and celebrate an early Christmas with two more people in need of mobility and there will be great specials on the day.

However, the dealership’s giving does not stop here. Three schools and two sports clubs in the area are supported on an ongoing basis, with sports equipment, kit towards sports teams, tours and more.

In August Mark White Nissan Amanzimtoti hosted a golf day, with proceeds - R52 000 - going to the Amanzimtoti Rugby and Cricket clubs.

In September they committed themselves to support cancer awareness in Amanzimtoti. With Dianne Saunders, KZN CANSA regional co-ordinator, Sharon-Anne and Errol Theron, Amanzimtoti CANSA volunteers, they hosted the 15 October event, Donut Day and Pink Ribbons.

This event was a build-up to Cancer Awareness Day on 5 November where a shavathon was hosted on all cars, and new cars were sold at cost.

There was a jumping castle, tea and coffee, eats, face painting, hairspray and ribbons. All proceeds went to CANSA Amanzimtoti. - Supplied.
