Continental Tyres is celebrating its 150th anniversary with a RM115,500 donation to the Kechara Soup Kitchen

Continental Tyres has been in business for 150 years now, starting all the way back in 1871. To celebrate this huge milestone, the company is making a huge donation of RM115,500 to the Kechara Soup Kitchen. This money was collected through the Wheely Great 150 Years Campaign held last year, where Continental donated RM5 for each sale made.

The large donation was made possible due to the rewards Continental Tyres Malaysia was giving out to its customers. For each motorcycle tyre and two car tyres purchased, customers had a chance to receive vouchers worth up to RM100. With RM5 made from each sale, Continental ended up with a huge sum of RM115,500 after the event was over.

The newly appointed Managing Director of Continental Tyre Malaysia, Andrea Somorova said “We are thankful for our customers’ participation and the opportunity to contribute to our community. All of us at Continental wish to do our part to uplift society, especially amid the ongoing difficulties of living in pandemic times.”

Thanks to their donation, a total of 615 urban poor and Orang Asli families were helped with essential items. Packages of food and appliances worth RM150 will be given out, to families located in different states across Peninsular Malaysia. The first 150 families to benefit will come from Klang Valley and Pahang.
