AvailableCar received some fantastic news recently, that the ‘Third Sector Business Charity Awards’ have presented AvailableCar with ‘Highly Commended’ for their partnership between their Team and their adopted partner, Rainbows Hospice for Children and Young People.
Rainbows put AvailableCar forward for the award, as they felt confident it would be recognised for its innovation and also its success. Thanks to the generous contributions from customers and the AvailableCar Directors Graham and Alison Bell, the charitable partnership just goes from strength to strength.
AvailableCar stores in Sutton in Ashfield and Castle Donington have been fundraising for Rainbows Hospice for Children and Young People since 2009 and recent figures show they have reached an incredible £559,000.
The fundraising scheme, which has been so successful asks every customer at the two branches, to kindly add anything up to the value of £5 onto the price of their car. AvailableCar then match the figure and all the money raised goes straight to the hospice. Almost every customer donates and they learn all about Rainbows and what they do at the same time.
As the East Midlands’ only hospice for children and young people, Rainbows was adopted by AvailableCar as it is such an incredibly important facility to so many families in the region.
