It’s all about family and giving back for Dayman’s.
General Manager Garry Dayman is proud of the generous sponsorship deal the business has with the Nelson Tasman Hospice.
Started by Garry’s parents in 1965, Dayman’s has had various brand relationships throughout the ensuing years. Known as the Nelson Bays Motor Group since 2007, two years ago the company went back to its original name – Dayman’s.
For third generation New Sales manager Scott Dayman it was an easy decision to go back to the name his grandfather used when he founded the business on Bridge Street.
“I’m very comfortable that we’ve gone back to our grass roots and we’ve just had such positive feedback from our clients and staff. I think family values are critical. We live by family values, we are a family business.
Garry says it is this sense of family and wanting to give back to a community which has supported them for so long that is behind the Hospice sponsorship deal.
“Some time ago Hospice came to us to get a car to transport some goods. Then a second approach was made to buy a vehicle. I thought we could do better than that and 18 months ago Dayman’s came up with a deal which provides a 2022 Suzuki Baleno GLX and two 2022 Suzuki Swift GLs for the Hospice community nurses.
“I believe it’s imperative these nurses have safe, economic and reliable vehicles for the important work they do in our community and our team were right behind the deal.
The sponsored cars are sign written, but subtly so. “We are aware that discretion and confidentiality are also part of the Hospice service” Garry says.
“I believe sponsorship should have the good of the community at its heart and that’s also what Hospice is about so for us this relationship makes perfect sense.”
