Holden Pitches in to Keep Bushfire Victims on The Road


Holden has taken to social media to offer a number of loan cars to people who have lost their vehicle in the devastating bushfires that have swept across the Adelaide Hills.


The local carmaker asked affected people to make contact through Facebook or Twitter if they were without a car following the significant property loss that occurred in the Sampson Flat fire.

Holden’s Corporate Affairs Manager for South Australia, Sophie Milic, said that Holden felt strongly about wanting to help those who had lost so much in recent days.

“Our Elizabeth factory isn’t far from the fire grounds and several of our employees live in the affected areas, so we’re connected to this community and we want to do what we can,” Ms Milic said.

“Particularly for those who have also lost houses, being without a car means they will have difficulty independently travelling between temporary accommodation and their property to begin clean-up efforts, and frankly that’s one more worry they don’t need at this time.

“Offering a loan car is just one small thing we can do to assist people to start getting their lives back in order.”

There is a limited number of cars available for up to 30 days and anyone interested should contact Holden through Facebook: facebook.com/HoldenAustralia or Twitter: @HoldenNews
