AAD Truck & Bus Port Elizabeth has had an active quarter for brand awareness! July 18th saw the staff head off to Huisgenot Retirement Village to make them a lunch, giving the kitchen staff some valued time off and the residents an opportunity to see the faces of the people who work in the area whilst remembering Nelson Mandela and his 67 minutes!
We also spearheaded the fundraising efforts of the local Victoria Park High School Equestrian team in their efforts to get to the SANESA Nationals in October. This team of talented riders, are representing the Eastern Cape and we are proud to be associated with them. The major fundraiser took the form of an Amazing Race around Port Elizabeth.
As the main sponsor, we also entered 3 teams, combining staff and customers. DP, Sash Mitchell along with Salesman Colin Van Eyk, Parts Salesman Lee Van Rooyen and TopUsed Salesman Andre Pretorius joined forces with customers along the way and we were proud to see new customer Invictus Logistics walk away with Top Honours… our Pirates and Italians, perhaps not as proud of their loss!
Working in PE with the PE Oval Track Racing always brings a level of excitement and pride as we cheer on our sponsored cars, whilst with customers on the side-lines. We have supported this local initiative 6 times this quarter, 2 of our sponsored vehicles are representing PE in the National Event in Bosberg. We have also been supporting Uitenhage and Despatch High Schools with Golf Day sponsorships and in turn have had large displays and marketing opportunities to the local community.
