Deal­er­ship deal revs up sup­port for the hos­pice

Macclesfield Express - - CHARITY ROUND-UP -

A CAR deal­er­ship has raised thou­sands of pounds in sup­port of East Cheshire Hos­pice.

Bristol Street Mo­tors Vaux­hall Mac­cles­field on Brind­ley Way made a do­na­tion for ev­ery new car sold and de­liv­ered in the months of March and April.

It also hosted an open week­end for the gen­eral public with hot dogs, pop­corn, candy floss and a photo booth for fun fam­ily pic­tures.

The event raised more than £2,500.

Christo­pher Webb, man­ager, said: “The com­mu­nity event was a great suc­cess.

“It was a re­ally great op­por­tu­nity for us to show­case our great ve­hi­cles and also raise money for a very worth­while cause at the same time.”

Camila Crockett, cor­po­rate fundrais­ing of­fi­cer for East Cheshire Hos­pice, said: “We would like to say a huge thank you to Bristol Street Mo­tors Vaux­hall Mac­cles­field for rais­ing a bril­liant £2,545.60.

“It was a fan­tas­tic idea to do­nate £50 to the hos­pice for ev­ery car sold dur­ing their ‘sel­l­athon’ in March and April, and it is a great ex­am­ple of how a lo­cal busi­ness can sup­port their lo­cal hos­pice.

“We would like to thank Chris and David and the whole team at Bristol Street Mo­tors Vaux­hall for their sup­port.

“The money raised will sup­port peo­ple in the lo­cal com­mu­nity who have been di­ag­nosed with a ter­mi­nal ill­ness.”

The hos­pice is also in for another wind­fall to­wards the end of the year.

The fundrais­ing idea has proved to be such a suc­cess that Christo­pher Webb and the team at Mac­cles­field will again do­nate £50 per car to East Cheshire Hos­pice on ev­ery car sold and de­liv­ered dur­ing Au­gust and Septem­ber.
