WA Team Lending a Helping Hand
We're very proud to announce that the MotorOne WA team recently participated in the Ronald McDonald House Home for Dinner program. After hearing about this program, our State Manager Gea Zamin asked her team to help her by volunteering their time to prepare and cook a meal for the families staying at Ronald McDonald House in Perth. Ronald McDonald House keeps families close by providing a home-away-from-home for regional WA families who have a sick child receiving hospital treatment in Perth.
The team rolled up their sleeves to prepare and cook a meal from scratch, with the help of a chef. They then served it up with lots of smiles and support to the families that were staying there - around 50 families.
A high five to the WA team for showing their support for such a wonderful cause.

MotorOne staff get together to support Daffodil Day
On Friday 25 August, the MotorOne staff around the country along with our dealership partners worked together to raise funds for Cancer Council Australia. As part of the Daffodil Day campaign, we had official merchandise for purchase where 100% of the proceeds would go to Cancer Council Australia, for research, education and patient support services. Also, at our Head Office, we hosted a morning tea to raise funds.
A shout out to Chatham Food Store for donating the catering for the event - their generosity was wonderful and showed their support of this worthy cause. Thank you also to everyone who purchase a lapel pin or pen - you're helping to raise funds for those living with Cancer, as well as raising awareness.
Take a look at our Facebook page for photos from the morning tea >

SA are helping out our furry friends
Our team over in South Australia have a tendency to support our furry friends, and recently supported a fantastic organisation called Moorook Animal Shelter. Moorook is a non-profit, non-kill animal organisation and have been re-homing unwanted dogs and cats since 1999. They don't discriminate, providing a second chance for all ages, gender, breeds, colours and sizes - after all, every dog and cat deserves to find a loving home. Their shelter has made such a difference for so many unwanted dogs and cats in their local area.

Our NSW team are pulling together to make a difference
Each month our team up in NSW choose a different local charity group to donate money to. They feel that by selecting a smaller, local charity group they can really help to make a difference in their community.
One of the charities they've donated to is Manning Valley Can Assist. Can Assist provides accommodation, financial assistance and practical support services to country people in rural and regional NSW affected by cancer. They ensure that country people are given the same opportunities and choices about the kind of treatment they received as people in city centres.
