We Continue Our Support of Heart Kids South Canterbury
Earlier this month we were delighted to hand over a brand new Kia Rio to Nicky from Heart Kids South Canterbury We have been a Principal Sponsor of the charity for several years and are proud to be able to provide them with a vehicle that allows them to continue the amazing work that they do.
We started sponsoring Heart Kids South Canterbury in 2018 as a way of giving back to the community. Johan Smit, our Dealer Principal said, “We want to contribute in a small way as it’s not fair that children don’t get everything they need in life.”
Heart Kids South Canterbury Community Family Support Nicky Merritt says,
In addition to the vehicle, we’ve also sponsored a day out at the movies and weekends away for the children at Heart Kids. The charity ahs been in operation since 2000, and supports children born with childhood or congenital heart defects, which equates to about 12 babies a week and 550 major heart surgeries performed each year. Heart Kids helps by offering information, social gatherings, and travel assistance – which is why the vehicle really comes in handy!
