Maria Gonet, Fundraising Manager and Dan Redsull, Chief Executive Officer, recently visited SLM to hand over our Certificate of Donation.
The impressive total we have raised for the local charity so far is £13,631.91. The money has been used towards helping them continue to improve the lives and well-being of people living with cancer and other life-threatening illnesses and their families in the Hastings and Rother area.
In a recent press release, the charity explained; "The Sara Lee Trust would like to convey their sincere thanks to the St Leonards Motors Group for their wonderful support of the charity, having raised an amazing total for the Trust over the last couple of years."
Dan Redsull says “The total St Leonards Motors have raised for the Trust to date is quite staggering, with £8,631.91 donated directly by SLM and £5,000 from Charitable Trusts that we only achieved with their support - so a grand total of £13,631.91.
"On behalf of everyone at The Sara Lee Trust, I would like to thank St Leonards Motor’s staff, team and all their customers who have added a £1 donation to the Trust when purchasing a car. Their support has contributed to the development of our Therapy Centre in Sidley and also in the delivery of our core services to local people affected by cancer and other life threatening illnesses. We are so pleased to have their support and look forward to continuing to work with them in the future."
We are all very proud to be involved in raising funds for such a worthy charity which helps so many people in the local community. We can't wait to see how much more we are able to raise in the future!
