Partners in the Western Sydney community
Terry Shields Toyota and Northcott have been working together for 15 years. Three key areas of collaboration have been the pre-dinner drinks sponsorship of Northcott’s Cricket Gala Dinner over several years (including 2019), support for Northcott’s Charity Golf Day for two years and the ‘Walk with Me’ awareness raising initiative in 2015 and 2016.
Other activities Terry Shields Toyota has been part of include corporate volunteering, support for the Northcott Athletics Carnivals and ongoing fundraising in their Church Street Dealership and Service Centre in Granville.
This mutually beneficial partnership allows Northcott to enhance the services offered to people with disability, particularly in areas where there is limited funding.
Marketing Manager at Terry Shields Toyota, Elissa Glenn, says: “Community partnerships are extremely important, and partnering with Northcott has been an amazing opportunity to support and get involved in the needs of our local community.
“One of the highlights of this partnership is the opportunity to experience the services provided by Northcott, through our involvement in recreation events and visits to respite and program facilities. Seeing the benefits of our continued support is truly a humbling experience.”
Both organisations are committed to seeing the partnership evolve. Northcott Partnership Specialist Holly Borbely says: “Terry Shields Toyota has a genuine commitment to our purpose of building an inclusive society where everyone can live the life they choose.
“Through this partnership they are showing a local commitment to Greater Western Sydney and driving positive change for people with disability in the area.”
There is close alignment between the two organisations’ core values: both are proud to be ethical, customer and future focused, passionate and driven by quality.
We also share a passion for the same community – Terry Shields Toyota has been trading in Parramatta for 45 years and Northcott moved its headquarters to the same area 31 years ago.
Elissa believes the synergy between Northcott and Terry Shields Toyota is best described as “unlocking human potential through the power of movement”.
