ROYAL Life Saving WA has received two cars from a Wangara dealership for its fundraising team and a pool inspector to use.

Wangara Hyundai provided a Hyundai Accent for the non-profit organisation’s fundraising team and a Hyundai i30 Go for a pool inspector to drive around the northern region.

“In keeping with our brand’s focus on safety, this partnership is a way for us to endorse safer roads and safer pools,” dealer principal David Filmann said.

Royal Life Saving WA works to help West Australians safely enjoy water activities and to reduce drownings.

Of the 21 people who drowned in WA in the previous financial year, five were toddlers under the age of five, with most of these children drowning in home swimming pools.

RLSSWA general marketing manager Allan Godfrey said the partnership with Wangara Hyundai would help the organisation’s work to reduce these statistics.

“The vehicles so generously provided will reduce the costs associated with the delivery of our home pool safety program, and our fundraising team who raise funds to educate parents and carers about toddler drowning prevention and support those families affected by non-fatal drowning incidents,” he said.

The partnership includes benefits for RLSSWA members buying or servicing vehicles at the dealer as well.
