Asco Motors has donated a 2016 Toyata Hiace 15-seater mini-van to the Petero Civoniceva Foundation at the Asco Motors showroom in Nabua yesterday.

The foundation is a charity group which aims to use sport to inspire communities and transform lives by opening pathways providing opportunities for young people as well as to advocate healthy living and eating and fighting diabetes.

Rugby League legend Petero Civoniceva said the vehicle would now enable the foundation and its trustees Chris Tomlinson and Lauren Jagger to maximise their efforts to reach out to rural areas and conduct their activities and programmes.

“It is an honour to be here,” the former Vodafone Fijian Bati skipper said.

“The three of us started this journey two years ago it started with a conversation about wanting to do something after my football career finished. It was all about wanting to give something back to Fiji.

“None of this would have been possible if it wasn’t for the generous efforts and sacrifice of Chris and I making this happen as well as the immense support we have had.

“Back when we started this foundation we would have never imagined the support we would be getting from Asco Motors. This vehicle now enables us to have greater reach and we can now go right across Fiji delivering our programmes and trying to make a difference in the adults and children’s lives by getting that awareness out.”

Asco Motors national marketing manager Elenoa Korovulavula who spoke on behalf of Asco Motors chief executive officer Jai Kumar said one of their main objectives is to ensure they give back to the community.

“One of our objectives is to ensure that we give back to the community and engage in activities for the betterment of our communities,” Korovulavula said.

The foundation will start their programme next week when they travel to Rakiraki.
