2016 Car Giveaway   |   Uganda 2015   |   Vehicle Giveaway

Don Sullivan of Central Automotive presents gift of mobility

2016 Car Giveaway Winner


Don gives Thomas a rundown on the condition and work that hads been done on the car. Central also gave Thomas a 6 month Roadside Assistance coverage. 

Thomas is from Cameroon, Africa. A high school teacher with a Bachelors degree in English studies and a Masters in French studies. Moved to Quebec then came to Surrey. As he is waiting for his teachers certification to come through he is working as a High School EA in Surrey. He and his wife were expecting their second child in November but Little Moses couldn't wait and announced his arrival 3 months early. 
Mom had to have emergency surgery resulting in serious complications. She was hospitalized for another 3 weeks. 
At a birth weight of 1 lb 4 oz. Little Moses remains in the hospital till November.

Regular visits to the hospital are extremely challenging as they did not have a vehicle. Getting around by transit prooved to be extremely uncomfortable for mom, as she is recovering. 

For Thomas,  receiving this vehicle was a surprise! He did not know friends and co-workers had submitted his story. His wives response: “HALLELUAH!” Thomas said, “Getting this car, couldn’t have come at a better time!”

We want to thank Our Selection Committee for the very difficult task of having to choose just one from all the submissions …. It was not easy! 

We wish we had more cars to give away !!

On behalf of Central Automotive Service Centre Ltd. and the team of "Partners In Motion" thank you for accepting this gift of mobility. This could not happen with out the generous heart of our customer Betty Noble who donated the car. Thank you Betty, you have blessed many!
