FleetWatch always loves it when we hear of members of the trucking fraternity reaching out to help society for it shows the warm heart of this industry – and here we have another case in point.

Apart from doing incredibly well with their truck sales chalking up 440 units sold in March, FAW Trucks South Africa is also giving back to society as evidenced by their participation, in partnership with FAW Paarl – MyRide Commercial, in the 15th Annual Truckers Function held in Vredendal which is aimed at raising funds for old age homes in the surrounding areas, including Vredendal, Lutzville, Klawer, Van Rhynsdorp, Nieuwoudtville, Clanwilliam, and Lambertsbaai.

MyRide Commercial, a dealer representative of FAW Trucks South Africa, sponsored one of its FAW JH6 28.500FT units for auction for a 3-month demo period. The event, which attracted participation from other leading brands, successfully raised an impressive amount that will be used for numerous local old age homes that were beneficiaries of the function.

This marks the second consecutive year that FAW Paarl, MyRide Commercial, has participated in the Truckers Function on behalf of FAW Trucks South Africa.

The Truckers Function, initiated by organiser Ben Nel 15 years ago, has been a consistent platform for the transport industry to give back to the community, focusing on supporting elderly care facilities in the region. FAW Paarl’s involvement in this annual event showcases the brand’s overall commitment to making a positive impact on the lives of those in need.

Levoy Van Der Merwe, Chief Operations Officer, FAW Paarl, says they were honoured to be a part of this meaningful initiative. “By contributing to the Truckers Function, we aim to support the incredible work being done by old age homes in the area and help improve the quality of life for our elderly community members.”

The 15th Annual Truckers Function’s resounding success highlights the transport industry’s united efforts to create a positive change in society and FAW Trucks South Africa and FAW Paarl have stated their commitment to continuing their support in the future.

Trucks have received a lot of flak over the past two years due to the huge volumes of trucks that have taken to the roads. However, while the number of trucks certainly has increased, FleetWatch would like to remind the critics that it is due to the total failure of rail in catering to the country needs – particularly in the commodities arena. In fact, trucks have come to the rescue of South Africa in this arena and it is heart-warming to see that while catering to the business side of the country, members of this fraternity continue to give back to society in many ways, as this story so clearly illustrates.
