Community and fundraising
Supporting worthwhile causes in the community.
We are one of Motability’s longest-serving partners. We're committed to supporting good causes and the local community.
Each year our employees raise funds for Motability’s nominated charities. Since becoming a Motability partner in 1995, we’ve raised over half a million pounds. This has gone towards helping disabled people get the mobility solution they need.
Our goal is to to help achieve the charitable aims and objectives of the Scheme.
Here’s a round-up of some of the fantastic charities we support and how we do it.
Doing it for the Kidz
We’ve been raising money for Whizz-Kidz since April 2018. So far, we've made a whopping £121,633.
Whizz-Kidz provides vital equipment, support and life skills to disabled children. This helps them to reach their full potential to transform their lives.
We've had bake sales, raffles and even a Survive the Wild challenge. We spent two days cliff jumping, cave swimming, mountain climbing and rock scrambling. No mean feat. Find out more about Whizz-Kidz (opens in new window).
Helping Motability help more people
Motability’s assessment team go to people’s homes to help determine a disabled person’s vehicle needs. They assess things like parking, how they enter and exit the vehicle, and any wheelchair requirements.
So far we've jumped out of planes, tackled the Three Peak Challenge and trekked across the countryside to raise £57,895. This has gone towards a second assessment vehicle for Motability.
Being better for our customers
We’ve signed up to the Green Ribbon campaign (also known as #thisismeNW). This brings companies from across the North-West of England together to work on ending the stigma attached to mental health. Find out more about the Green Ribbon campaign (opens in new window).
With over 200 trained Dementia Friends, we’re also making good progress towards our goal to become a Dementia-Friendly business. Taking part in the annual Memory Walk in Liverpool has become a highlight of the year for the team. Find out more about Dementia Friends (opens in new window).
