Latest News - Market Square Uitenhage
On the 4th of June, we were privileged to support and sponsor the Humewood Pro-Am. One of the most important parts of the Pro-Am is to raise funds for charity and to also build awareness for these lesser know organisations.
Market Square Volkswagen Uitenhage made it possible to get like minded people together and raise over R 20 000 for Hanna’s Arms.
Their aim was to build a Baby Safe which will provide a safe option for desperate mothers as an alternative to dumping unwanted babies by giving them a chance at survival.
With the help of the Wedgewood Pro-Am, we were able to raise enough funds to build two Baby Safes in Port Elizabeth.
The event was a real success achieving all its goals. It had good media coverage across social platforms, newspaper, and radio. A lot of networking happened and much fun was had by all participants. The PGA slogan is “Improving lives through the game of Golf” and this definitely was the case.
Power and Skill combined leads to GREAT success…
Well done to the Durrant Motorsport Racing team, powered by Market Square Volkswagen Uitenhage, in achieving outstanding results in the 2017 Simola Jaguar Hillclimb in Knysna.

Michael McNaughton purchased Market Square Volkswagen (then known as Kelly Volkswagen) with the assistance
of two partners in 1996.
The dealership was born from humble beginnings and began trading on the 1st June 1996 with 3 new cars in stock, one demo, 1 salesperson and 2 used cars. Today the dealership sells over 80 New and Mastercars a month, services around 40 cars a day and employs just over 90 staff.
In 2012 the Kelston Motor Group invested substantially in the Uitenhage Metro by developing a new state of the art dealership and relocated the branch from the centre of town to Algoa Road.
In celebrating our 20 year anniversary we are delighted to share that we have three staff that have celebrated this milestone with us namely Clive Oosterhuizen, Louis Du Plessis and Wilson Dwane.
