As long as Bodytech Automotive has been in the car repair game, they have also been in the community game.
McHappy day 2012
This was a wonderful success with cars parked in the grounds of the local Maccas and many people visiting to sit in the cars and have their photos taken. Even the local Cops and Firies took part. A cheque was presented on the day from Bodytech…
kiis 106.5 FM
Bodytech has long been associated with assisting local charities and sponsoring local sports clubs. Although Peter doesn’t like being in the spotlight, he sincerely believes in the gift of giving. Bodytech has hosted Car shows, namely Show and Shines for many years now, sometimes twice a year. The last one was particularly memorable, when Peter’s wife Joanne was listening to Kyle and Jackie O on kiis 106.5FM, when she heard of a young boy who had lost his parents and was bringing up his 2 younger brothers whilst working part time and attempting to do a degree at University. She was compelled to tell Peter, who donated part of the proceeds that day to Jarrod and his brothers. He also gave them one of Bodytech’s promotional vehicles, a fully restored and modified Toyota Sera. The boys were so grateful and the whole community came together to support them.
The Wayside Chapel
Although not exactly local to Castle Hill, Peter also supports The Wayside Chapel in Kings Cross. The Wayside Chapel creates a community where there is no ‘us and them’ by breaking down the barriers of judgement and providing a safe place where people from all walks of life are welcome just to ‘be’. click here to check out their website. Wayside draws people out of social isolation and invites them into the healing place of community. People marginalised by homelessness, mental health issues and substance abuse can turn to Wayside for compassion, tolerance and support. After meeting the pastor Rev. Graham Long, Peter felt compelled to assist in some way. They are always looking for small hotel size shampoos razors and hygiene products.
All Peters sons have played Rugby League for local clubs since they were small, so sponsoring their clubs was a natural thing to do.
These are just some of their supporters both past and present:
- Rouse Hill junior rugby league 2009 – 2011
- Wentworthville junior rugby league 2011 – 2012
- Local McDonalds McHappy Day 2012

They are always looking for new ways to support our local area as well as those less fortunate.
