Cockram Kia Driving Neighbourhood Support Christchurch
Last Friday was an exciting day for everyone at Cockram Kia, as we handed over the keys to all-new Kia Sportages to the team at Neighbourhood Support Christchurch Area (NSCA). Easily recognisable with a touch of nostalgia, the familiar logo of Neighbourhood Support is now adorning two Kia Sportages. Neighbourhood Support Christchurch Area is a community-led movement that brings people and neighbourhoods together to create safe, resilient, and connected communities. We’re proud to drive NSCA by not only providing two vehicles but also endeavouring to utilise the strength of our brand and network to further support their efforts.
Moving speeches from Jodie Tait (Cockram Kia General Manager), Murray McGusty (NSCA General Manager), Elissa Smith (NSCA Schools Programme Co-ordinator), and members of New Zealand Police highlighted just how important the job that the NCSA does and how the use of Kia Sportages will assist in creating safe, resilient, and connected communities.
Handing over the keys
Emotions were high as we handed over the keys of the all-new Sportages to Murray and Elissa. Having had to previously scrap their old vehicles, the use of a new Kia Sportages is a significant upgrade and will be a huge asset to their work. Murray and Elissa travel all over Canterbury for their work, so it’s imperative they have a vehicle that meets their needs – and the all-new Sportage is a perfect fit. Having the familiar and iconic blue and yellow logo adorning it gives NSCA a greater presence in the community, whilst also celebrating our commitment to the region.
Exploring the Sportage
Sales Manager Tyler Lamb took Murray and Elissa through all the features of the Sportage, such as the 12.3″ touchscreen infotainment system, wireless Apple CarPlay and Android Auto, plus the wireless smartphone charging. The large boot space, 5-seater capability, and advanced technology are sure to be put to good use by the team.
