Members of Warkworth RSA can have fresh confidence that they will be able to get to important hospital and specialist medical appointments after Warkworth Toyota donated a “welfare car” to the association this month.
Able-bodied volunteers at the RSA regularly drive fellow members to appointments, but the aging Suzuki they employed to provide the service was getting well past its use-by date.
The problem came up in conversation when the president of the Warkworth RSA John Stephen was having his car serviced at Warkworth Toyota.
As a result, Warkworth Toyota donated a 2006 Toyota Corolla to meet the need.
Branch manager Brendan Langdon says Warkworth Toyota is already heavily involved in the community and this is just another way the business is helping out.
John Stephen says the car will be used virtually every day and is ideal for the purpose.
“RSAs throughout the country continue to look after our veterans and Warkworth Toyota is certainly helping us do that,” he says.
