On 26th July Western Australia Automotive Holdings Group (AHG) Dealer Principal wives and partners, along with friends, family, staff and sponsors banded together to raise funds for HeartKids (refer https://www.heartkids.org.au/). Craig Tonkin, Pickwick’s General Manager for WA said he was delighted Pickwick was able to join their client and contribute to such a worthwhile cause. As a combined effort more than $30,000 was raised on the day.
The idea of AHG partnering with HeartKids first came about when it was discovered the son of an AHG employee benefited from the support received from HeartKids. It was this support that gave the family strength through numerous surgeries and hospital stays. HeartKids is the only national profit for purpose charity dedicated to supporting children, teens and adults affected by congenital/childhood heart disease and is a separate organisation to the Heart Foundation. Their support is a commitment for life, because there is no cure. People with congenital/childhood heart disease face unique challenges their entire life.
AHG holds more than 180 car and truck franchises at more than 100 dealership locations across Australia and NZ.
