Local car dealership supports their local health service

Frankston and Cranbourne Toyota General Manager Howard Bould with Frankston Hospital Chief Operating Officer Brendon Garnder and Peninsula Health staff testing out the new cars. 

Peninsula Health staff who travel to see patients at home now have access to three brand new fleet cars, thanks to Frankston and Cranbourne Toyota.

“Many of our community health staff travel from Peninsula Health sites to see patients in the community or at home,” explains Peninsula Health Chief Executive Felicity Topp.

“Thanks to the support of Frankston and Cranbourne Toyota, we now have three additional fleet cars available for our staff to use for these important visits. For example, clinicians from our Stroke Detours Program regularly use fleet cars to visit people recovering from stroke, so they can do rehabilitation at home.”

Frankston and Cranbourne Toyota General Manager Howard Bould handed over the keys to the new Toyota Corolla, Rav 4 and Yaris on 27 September.

In addition to the car donation, the dealership is also pledging to donate $200 to the Children and Adolescent Ward at Frankston Hospital, for every car sold to Peninsula Health staff, volunteers and their family.

“Supporting the Peninsula Health Children’s Ward is a great fit for us and our staff,” says Howard Bould, General Manager of Frankston and Cranbourne Toyota.

“Many of us are locals and our families have experienced the benefit of the Hospital’s care and expertise first hand, so we understand first hand the need to support the local hospital that supports us.”

The dealership is planning to hold more fundraising activities during the year to support Peninsula Health to continue to provide world class care to local kids.

Ms Topp thanked Frankston and Cranbourne Toyota for getting behind their local health service.

“We are very pleased to partner with a great local business on this fantastic initiative,” she says.

“By donating the cars and committing to donate a portion of new car sales to our paediatric services, Frankston and Cranbourne Toyota are making a big difference to children and families across the Mornington Peninsula.”
