The donation ceremony was held in the Dunaharaszti branch of Sonepar in Hungary
On February 9th, Sonepar in Hungary and LEDVANCE donated 1 Million Ft to the Hungarian Ambulance Motorcycle Foundation, as a result of the LEDVANCE International Sales Race 2020.
On the reason why they chose this particular charity, Sonepar in Hungary Managing Director, János Ágner said, "We chose the Hungarian Ambulance Motorcycle Foundation because besides that they support the work of the Ambulance Motorcycles at the national level, the COVID-19 situation also imposes additional burdens on them. All aiding foundations serve noble purposes, but this almost one-year-long period is a particularly big challenge for healthcare professionals."
Speaking about the continued success of this initiative, LEDVANCE Company Director in Hungary, Zoltán Szegszárdi explained, "Sales statistics between September and November in 2020 fully demonstrated the success of the campaign: Sonepar has reached 14% increase compared to last year turnover of OSRAM LED lamps and LEDVANCE LED luminaires for the same period. For the second time, our company is donating to a foundation as part of an international campaign. I am glad that we managed to achieve the set goal again, which was achieved as a result of real teamwork. Both companies are committed to the support, with a good feeling that the donation will be in a good place this year as well."
Chairman of the Board of Trustees of the Foundation, Zoltán Varsányi stated, "We are incredibly grateful to receive this significant donation; the goal of the Foundation is to help save lives in Hungary, especially as providing ambulance motorcycles and special ambulance equipment is especially high at this time, we need to give high-quality professional equipment and driving training for ambulance motorcycle workers. Since 2020, the fight against COVID-19 has also given ambulance paramedics additional tasks, such as getting involved in mass testing. Therefore, it is a huge help for us to receive extra support and positive feedback in addition to our extra responsibilities."
