Here at London Honda, this dealership has been a staple in the city for over 40 years, located at the corner of Wharncliffe and Commissioners for the last 22 years. We specialize in new and pre-owned vehicle sales, vehicle maintenance, and automotive parts.
Since our relocation in 2000, London Honda has continued our involvement in supporting the community, as well as local businesses. With covid changing all of our everyday lives, we decided to take the initiative in 2022 to kick off our Helping Hands community campaign! Our dealership will be showcasing our Helping Hands Campaign on Facebook, Instagram, and the rest of our social media pages. Teaming up with local businesses in London to help reinforce the community, creating smiles, and making a difference as supporting our region is one of the main goals London Honda plans to accomplish.
Our ‘Helping Hands’ community campaign began in September of 2022 when we first teamed up with the Byron Optimist Sports Complex for their Charity Golf Tournament! For almost 45 years, thousands of youth and adults have enjoyed playing and watching sports at the Byron Optimist Sports Complex. What separates Byron Optimist sports complex from the other facilities in the city is, the Complex does not receive any financial support from the City of London and the Ontario and Federal Governments. Byron sports complex is supported by a non for profit organization of the Optimist Club in Byron, this is their 4th golf tournament to help raise funds for the Byron Optimist Sports Complex for improvements to the sports fields and facilities. At London Honda, we wanted to show our support for the community by participating and sponsoring holes at their 4th annual tournament held at Fire Rock golf club.
We are continuing the strong start with one of London Honda’s longest-running sponsorships to what was once called “Jesse’s Journey” and has now rebranded to Defeat Duchenne Canada. The Defeat Duchene Canada teamed up with Western Aviation Council and the Jet Aircraft Museum for the Pull a Plane to Defeat Duchenne event held in October. Before the pandemic, the event was run annually to raise money and awareness for Duchenne Muscular Dystrophy research. London Honda played a major role in being one of their major contributors for donations and helped the event raise over $5000 to make a measurable difference by helping Defeat Duchenne Canada reach the goal of funding the most promising research until a cure is found.
The next step for our initiative in October begins with our support for Breast Cancer Awareness month! Every Thursday in October, London Honda employees will be wearing Pink as well as will be collecting donations from our staff and any customers looking to support the cause. Donations will be accepted at London Honda all month long and contributions will be matched by the dealership. Donations will then be passed on to the Canadian Cancer Society, who will also match our donation and will be made on the 31st of October to cap off the amazing support campaign.
The direction for London Honda’s ‘Helping Hands‘ campaign steers toward supporting the communities and local businesses in the London region. After the world went in shock over the past few years, we never know what’s ahead of us, that’s why supporting one another is so crucial. London Honda has taken pride in being located in London for the last 40 years, and wants to continue our success while supporting our community, as they do so every day for us!
