Toyota Chatswood and CFC ANCOP Australia renew their partnership to raise funds to help poor families in the Philippines, Papua New Guinea and Solomon Island.
For the second time running, Toyota Chatswood is providing the grand prize of a new Corolla Ascent Sport for the biennial car raffle fund raising activity of ANCOP.
Chatswood and Ryde Toyota Managing Director, Ian Mayer, commended ANCOP for the terrific wok that they do. Mr Mayer himself lived in the Philippines for two years as a child when his father, an executive for Qantas was assigned to work in Manila in 1969. That’s why, when ANCOP approached Toyota to be a partner for the fundraising event, Mr Mayer said “it was a natural fit”.
“Every company or every executive who has the opportunity to help should always help. You’re a highly valued organisation and our business tries to be highly valued as well. We have four core values and we try to live those everyday”, explained Mr Mayer.This month of September, their staff raised about $50,000 for children and adults living with cerebral palsy.Mr Mayer added that there are many worthwhile causes and it’s important to go out there and support the community.
