This December, MG Motor Australia is supporting one of Australia's largest charities, Australian Red Cross, to make every test drive count.


As part of MG Motor's Test Drive for a Difference intiaitve, every test drive taken of an MG vehicle throughout December, we will donate $10 to Australian Red Cross, up to a maximum total of $40,000


Since 2018, the Test Drive for a Difference has been an annual occurrence for MG Motor Australia, with the intiative's  primary goal to raise vital funds for those who are experiencing loneliness or homelessness over the holiday season,


Australians can test drive an MG vehicle from one of MG Motor's 90 plus authorised dealerships nationwide to participate, making their test drive count this festive season.


Funds raised from December 11 - 31, through national MG vehicle test drives, will support Australian Red Cross, with funds providing practical and personal support to young people who are at risk of, or currently experiencing homelessness in the local community.


MG Motor Australia's support for Australian Red Cross commenced earlier in 2020 at the inaugural Show & Shine competition where funds were raised by over 300 classic and modern MG owners across Australia in celebration of the brand's rich history. 


Peter Ciao, CEO, MG Motor Australia and New Zealand, said: "We are humbled to extend our relationship with Australian Red Cross this year and help vulnerable Australians, particularly at a time of year that can be difficult for those most at-risk."


"We've long admired the Australian Red Cross Night Cafe which provides a safe space where young people experiencing homelessness can go," Mr Ciao said.


"Our employees are proud to work for a company committed to community service and to provide a constant pipeline of support for people in need."


The funds raised by MG Motor's community during December will help Australian Red Cross provide support services to help people facing hardship by creating effective pathways to gain knowledge and skills, access resources and services, and improve social connection and participation.
