HR Owen teamed up with children’s hospice charity Shooting Star Chase to give terminally ill children and their families the perfect day out and a well-deserved break.
The luxury dealer group presented the Bentley lifestyle in all its glory to those who deserve it most.
Bentley Surrey deployed eight brand new Bentayga SUVs to the charity’s two hospices – Shooting Star House in Hampton and Christopher’s in Guidlford – before HR Owen chauffeurs whisked families away in luxury for a relaxing and fun-filled day.
After touring around the picturesque roads of Surrey, drivers headed to The Medicine Gardens in Cobham to enjoy afternoon tea in stunning surroundings. The Medicine Gardens is a former Victorian hothouse that’s been restored and transformed into a hidden haven of tranquility, purity and health.
Shooting Star Chase and The Medicine Gardens then arranged afternoon tea for the supported families overlooking the Bentleys, with luxury sandwiches, cakes and beverages.
Karen Sugarman, director of fundraising at Shooting Star Chase, said: “The children, siblings and parents had a truly wonderful afternoon travelling through Surrey in such style and luxury, and being treated to delicious afternoon tea in peaceful and beautiful surroundings. The families Shooting Star Chase care for endure unimaginable circumstances, and we know a break like this means the world to them.”
After hosting an enjoyable day out, HR Owen drivers once again loaded up the Bentleys and returned their guests home with souvenirs and lasting memories of the experience.
Peter Matthews, Bentley Surrey brand ambassador, said: “It was nothing but an honour for us at Bentley Surrey and HR Owen to spend the day with these incredibly brave children and their amazing families. Seeing their eyes light up when they first sat in the Bentaygas was a sight to behold – they loved having a luxury experience that they are so rarely able to enjoy. The admirable work that Shooting Star Chase does means the world to these inspirational children and we were over the moon to play a big part in it.”
