LOCAL Kia dealership, Chapelhouse Southport, is giving Queenscourt Hospice a helping hand by donating the use of two brand new Kia cars.
The Ainsdale-based retailer has presented the charity with a 62 plate Kia cee’d and Kia Sportage to help the hospice’s staff undertake their fundraising activities.
The provision of the Kia cars ensures that volunteers and employees at Queenscourt have the crucial support they need to keep the charity’s team mobile, attending fundraising events such as the Lights of Love and Santa Sprint events.
Brian Halliwell, head of fundraising at Queenscourt Hospice, said: “We are delighted that Chapelhouse has selected our hospice to benefit from two new cars.
“It will be a massive help to both Queenscourt at Home and our fundraising team, who have to venture on to the roads a great deal over winter in support of the hospice. This gesture is a lovely continuation of Chapelhouse's generosity.”
Chris Layton, Chapelhouse Kia operations manager, said: “We think it’s important as a local business to support local charities, standing together as a community.
“We recognise the important work the hospice carries out and we know how people in the area rely on Queenscourt and its services.
“Helping fundraisers get to events to drum up donations is key and we’re humbled to be able to support the hospice in this way.”
