BCA raised more than £1,000 for Royal Brompton & Harefield Hospitals Charity during the Motorline Mega Sale at BCA Paddock Wood on Wednesday, March 14.
The dealer group, which signed an exclusive remarketing contract with BCA last February, donated a 2004 Nissan Almera that raised £575.
Adrian Tilley of Max Motors donated a signed Chelsea shirt, raising a further £475.
Additional private donations were made throughout the day with all funds going to Royal Brompton & Harefield Hospitals Charity. The charity raises money to support both hospitals in their fight against heart and lung disease.
Ashley Westpfel, fundraising director for the charity, said: “Many thanks to Motorline, the team at BCA Paddock Wood and their customers on the day for raising hundreds of pounds to support the work of Royal Brompton and Harefield Hospitals. The work of both hospitals in research and treatment of heart and lung disease gives hope to all those suffering with these debilitating and life-threatening conditions, which could affect any of us at any time.”
BCA offered the gavel to Motorline’s group used car buyer, Chris Willett. He conducted the sale of the two charity lots.
The Almera was purchased by Mark Wortley of Margray Vehicle Sales and the Chelsea shirt sold to Liutauras Miksys, representing Auto City Motors, Eltham.
Willett said: “I’d like to thank BCA and its customers for helping Motorline to raise a substantial sum for this most worthy cause. Royal Brompton & Harefield Hospitals Charity does fantastic work raising money for equipment, research and amenities that fall outside of NHS funding. The Charity’s projects are vital to patients’ lives and wellbeing, making these hospitals not only excellent but extraordinary.”
