CCR Mitsubishi has pledged to support the WellChild children’s charity for another year.
The Cheltenham-based charity, which helps seriously ill children and their families across the UK, has saved enough money to pay for more than 1,000 hours of nursing support, thanks to the backing of CCR Mitsubishi since January this year.
CCR Mitsubishi will continue lending the charity two vehicles throughout 2015 and has just handed over a brand new Mitsubishi Outlander and an ASX.
Chief executive of the charity Colin Dyer (pictured, left) said: “We have driven more than 42,000 miles in the vehicles CCR Mitsubishi has lent us this year which over the 12 months has saved us more than £20,000. To have these vehicles is brilliant for us. It has had a really important impact for the charity and therefore the children and families that we are supporting.”
Managing director of CCR Mitsubishi Tim Bagnall (pictured, right) said: “WellChild is a national charity but are based locally so we are keen to help them. It’s fantastic that we’re able to help the charity save so much money that can be ploughed back in to their vital work and make a real difference to children’s lives.”
Over the last year members of staff at CCR Mitsubishi have also volunteered to work on WellChild’s Helping Hands projects transforming homes and gardens for families with seriously ill children.
