The SLM Group have raised well over £21,000 for a local charity called The Sara Lee Trust, making them one of their most valued business supporters. The Sara Lee Trust supports people affected by cancer and other life-threatening illnesses. This year, the trust is raising funds to support the building of a new hall space at its Therapy Centre in Sidley, Bexhill.
The new building will help the Sara Lee Trust provide more group activities for its patients. SLM’s group donation will be an important contribution towards the project.
Services Manager Kerry Evans said, “Activities like gentle yoga offer a safe way to exercise for people who are affected by life threatening illness, and also provide much needed support and friendship with others experiencing similar issues.”
With demand for these activities increasing, The Sara Lee Trust’s new hall space will be able to provide the extra space needed to accommodate those who need its support.
Mark Phillips, Managing Director of St Leonards Motors Group says “The work of The Sara Lee Trust is truly inspiring, and to be able to help with the building of its new facilities really means a lot to us. We are very pleased to be supporting this brilliant local charity, and to be able to spread the word with our customers about them while we celebrate our 60th year here at SLM Group.”
