During the recent devastation of Tropical Cyclone Winston, the Category 5 storm in Fiji, forty lives were lost, and thousands of homes, hospitals, schools, and water supplies were severely damaged. Tyrepower’s suppliers generously donated a range of items to be auctioned off to those in attendance at the Tyrepower International
Conference in Fiji. The auction was so successful, that $86,975 was raised, with more donations still to be received from the Tyrepower Dealer Network. Tyrepower will donate these funds to the Makogai Primary School, located on an island of approximately 8 square kilometres in the Lomaiviti Group which houses 38 children. The school was severely damaged in the cyclone, with students being left to attend class under only a tarpaulin. The donated funds will assist the Makogai Primary School in rebuilding their classrooms and facilities.
Tyrepower CEO, David Wilson said, “We are extremely touched that our Australasian Dealer Network banded together to raise funds for those in Fiji who have been left with very little following the devastating natural disaster in February.”
