Everyone at SLM is extremely pleased to have been able to hand over another large donation to the Sara Lee Trust.
The amount for £569 has once again been raised by donating to the trust each time a new or used car across the group is sold. This new donation means that we have now donated over £16,000 to the charity since 2016. Now in our third year of supporting them, we have seen first hand how the money raised helps to change the lives of people living with cancer and other life threatening illnesses, as well as their friends and family.
All of the staff across SLM Group are very proud to be involved in raising money for such a fantastic local cause. We would like to say a huge thank you to them all for their hard work, without which such big donations wouldn't be possible.
The trust commented: "The Sara Lee Trust supports people in Hastings and Rother affected by cancer and other life threatening illnesses by providing free counselling, complementary therapies and therapeutic group activities. The Trust is extremely grateful for the ongoing support of St Leonards Motors Group, which helps more people every year to get the vital care and support they need, when they need it."
Jo, a user of the Sara Lee Trust services, commented: "The Sara Lee Trust were a great support to me during my own breast cancer treatment by giving me someone to talk to and a time for me to be supported and helped through aromatherapy massage. I will always be grateful to them and endeavour now, to give them my time through volunteering in different roles, to try and help others going through cancer and other life threatening illnesses.
"It's wonderful to see St. Leonards Motors making such a wonderful and appreciated contribution to the work of the Sara Lee Trust helping others to benefit from their services - thank you so much."
