Henderson Cars in South Auckland has received a signed Mate Ma’a Tonga jersey from one of its major sponsored parties – the Hakulā ‘O Aotearoa rugby league team.
Mate Ma’a Tonga player David Fusitu’a presented the gift to Henderson Cars owner Muliagatele Shiu Singh.
Fusitu’a’s father, Edwin Fusitu’a, who made a short speech before the jersey was presented, said the Hakulā wanted to give Henderson Cars a token of appreciation because of their financial support for their players.
Tongan Sales Manager Vaima’ala’ala Tu’akalau said they had more than 1000 cars in their yard for their customers to choose from.
She said a campaign on social media which promised any person who could bring a customer to buy a vehicle at Henderson Cars would be offered a $1000 cash went really well.
Henderson Cars also gave customers who bought vehicles from them tickets to Tonga, shopping and cash for Christmas.
This also included offering their customers a grace period to start paying back their loan in 2019.
“Come and talk to me,” Tu’akalau said.
The company has been closely involved in financially supporting the Tongan community around New Zealand.
In August it sponsored Miss Tongan Tau’olunga 2018, the first competition of its kind to be held in New Zealand.
As Kaniva news reported in August, Henderson Cars has continued to boost its cultural connection with the Tongan community by providing a free meal and a sponsorship of a major Tongan dancing competition.
The car dealership at 24 Great South Road, Takanini has offered a Nissan Veneta van for Kaniva Tonga news as part of a new collaboration to boost the company’s public relation.
