Tyres with the heart
Since 2010, “Latakko” Ltd., in cooperation with the network of tire centers “Pirelli Key Point”, has organized a charity campaign called “Tires with the heart.” During the campaign, “Pirelli Key Point” donates 1.44 EUR to the Children’s Clinical University Hospital from each sold set of summer tires. In this period, buyers have been asked to donate using donation boxes placed in all “Pirelli Key Point” tire centers or by direct transfer to current accounts of the Children’s Clinical University Hospital.
In four years, the total amount of donations has exceeded 50 thousand EUR. With the money raised, the Children’s Clinical University Hospital has purchased much necessary equipment including: artificial breathing equipment, phototherapy lamps, devices for infant hearing verification, heating beds, vital monitors, respiratory inhalers, special cots for prematurely born twins, “Dermatome” devices used in skin transplantation, perforators for treatment of burns and more.
