Lately Geraldine has been travelling about in a fantastic, brand new car generously donated by Z Energy and Toyota. And to top it off, local Z operator John Hurley donated a $2000 petrol gift card!

“There were certainly a few tears in my eyes with the whole announcement! What an incredible gift!” says Geraldine.

Kent Hagen and Deborah Hart of Manawatu Toyota, along with John, were there to give the keys over to a very excited Geraldine.

“I cover a large geographical area so having a Sweet Louise car has made a huge difference in my role. I now have the freedom and ability to visit many of our Members who are unable to travel and to visit the outer regions on a more regular basis.”

Based in Palmerston North, Geraldine has already driven more than 1600 kilometres in a few weeks and visited a number of areas including Levin and Foxton.

After Z’s “Good in the Hood” promotion this year, Sweet Louise were chosen as one of 14 groups to be “supercharged”. Z and Toyota worked together to get Geraldine a car after watching a heartfelt video of – Sweet Louise Member – Maree.

“Our Members are so excited about the new car, they are thrilled and amazed at the support they feel they have received by this,” says Geraldine.

“It is very difficult to fully express my gratitude for the wonderful gift of a brand new car and words seem inadequate, however I send a big huge heartfelt thank you to Z Energy, all the Z Energy station staff that voted for us to enter the Supercharger and Toyota NZ for making our wish of having a car come true.”

A huge thank you to Z and Toyota for their amazing donation. And a special thank you to everyone who voted for Sweet Louise in Z’s Good in the Hood this year! Your support means Sweet Louise can reach more men and women living with secondary breast cancer. Thank you.
