Local Ford dealership, Evans Halshaw in St Albans, is
delighted to announce they have enrolled on a national fundraising mission for
cancer charity Hope for Tomorrow.
As part of an initiative by the Evans Halshaw Group, the
'Charity Challenge' will see staff at the dealership, on Ashley Road, pulling
out all the stops to ensure the group's £260,000 target is met.
The dealership has signed up to the mission in order to
provide support for Hope for Tomorrow - a charity which aims to alleviate some
of the stresses and strains associated with receiving treatment for cancer.
The fun-filled team at Evans Halshaw St Albans are now
urging visitors to the dealership and people in the area to keep their eyes
peeled for forecourt carwashes, delicious bake-sales, and a bunch of motor
enthusiasts donning weird and wonderful costumes for dress-up days. And with a
£260,000 target to reach, it seems the team are prepared to go to great lengths
in the name of charity.
David Jolles, Dealer Principal at Evans Halshaw St Albans,
comments: "Hope for Tomorrow is a fantastic cause which makes a difference to
thousands of cancer patients and their families, and at Evans Halshaw we're
only too keen to get on board and show our support.
"We're extremely passionate and proud to be a part of
Charity Challenge, and with plenty of exciting fundraising ideas up our
sleeves, we determined to meet the £260,000 target!"
The financial contribution will help fund Mobile
Chemotherapy Units, which allow cancer patients to receive treatment in a
restful environment closer to home, easing the pressure and expense of
traveling long distances for treatment.
The units can travel five days a week, and have the capacity to treat
between 18-20 patients a day.
Rosa Woodley, Charity Fundraiser for Hope for Tomorrow,
adds: "We are extremely grateful for all the money Evans Halshaw has raised for
us so far, the vital contribution will go a long way in providing our patients
with the necessary treatment and care. We can't thank them enough for their
help and hope to work with Evans Halshaw for many more years to come."
