Inked for charity

Volkswagen UK managing director and Australian native Andrew Savvas has raised more than £15,000 to help fight the bushfires in the country.

He has had a kangaroo tattooed onto each ankle.

Savvas said: “I have chosen to support WWF Australia, helping provide emergency funds to care for our injured wildlife, and when the fires clear, to aid in the restoration of the forest homes our koalas and other animals have lost.

“I am touched by the overwhelming support I have received in raising funds for a cause that it is important to me personally. To encourage support I decided to get my first tattoos. I wanted to do something different to ensure that I have a permanent reminder of the impact climate change has on us and to recognise the brave Australians on the frontline volunteering to fight the fires and support their neighbours.”
