Canteen Members Set to Benefit from New Corolla, Thanks to Toyota
CanTeen, the organisation that supports young people living with cancer, won the use of a brand new Toyota Corolla for three years after coming in the top 25 most popular charities in Toyota’s recent “25 Ways to Say Thanks” campaign.
The charity received the key to their gleaming new Toyota Corolla yesterday. A total of 515 charities registered to be in the running for one of 25 cars to use for three years, with nearly 40,000 people voting for their favourite charity through Facebook.
The car will be used by CanTeen’s Auckland branch and will allow members – especially those for whom transport is an issue – to be involved in weekly and monthly activities that provide support and encouragement, and the charitable organisation’s youth workers can transport others to and from hospital appointments.
CanTeen’s National Marketing Manager Kimberley Waters says that the organisation receives no direct government funding, relying heavily on its own fundraising efforts with support from the public.
She says members and staff got right in behind the quest to be one of Toyota’s 25 chosen charities by encouraging their friends and family to go online and vote for CanTeen.
“We’re ecstatic that those efforts ensured that the New Zealand public chose us as one of the top 25 charities to receive a Corolla, and of course we thank Toyota for coming up with such a fantastic initiative,” says Ms Waters.

CanTeen National Marketing Manager, Kimberley Waters receives the key to their new Toyota Corolla from Graham McMullan of Giltrap Toyota with CanTeen staff and members around the car.
