Our Chair, Shayne Connell, said Burton Automotive Group’s $2,000 sponsorship was great news for the start of the year and provided an outstanding opportunity for a refugee student at a Hunter Valley high school.
“It’s wonderful news for the student and MSN – both the Network and Burton Automotive are heavily involved with the community and it’s a partnership that will bring educational and personal rewards,” said Shayne.
“The refugee scholarship will assist a marginalised student to have equal access to high school resources and technology (uniforms, ancillary fees, excursions, books, computers, equipment, software and internet access).”
Burton Automotive Group is a well-known automotive retailer in the Hunter Region and has a solid reputation for supporting community initiatives. The company, which has grown from humble beginnings in Maitland to an award-winning automotive group, has been active in supporting the community for more than 50 years.
