Staff at local Ford dealership, Evans Halshaw in Kirkcaldy, have enrolled on a fundraising mission for cancer charity Hope for Tomorrow.
As part of an initiative by the Evans Halshaw Group, the ‘Charity Challenge’ will see staff at the dealership on Forth Avenue pulling out all the stops to ensure the group’s £260,000 target is met.
The Kirkcaldy team is now urging visitors and people in the area to keep their eyes peeled for forecourt car washes, delicious bake-sales, and a bunch of motor enthusiasts donning weird and wonderful costumes for dress-up days.
And with a £260,000 target to reach, it seems the team isprepared to go to great lengths in the name of charity.
Mark Brown, dealer principal at Kirkcaldy, said: “Hope for Tomorrow is a fantastic cause which makes a difference to thousands of cancer patients and their families, and we’re only too keen to get on board and show our support.
“We’re extremely passionate and proud to be a part of ‘Charity Challenge’, and with plenty of exciting fundraising ideas up our sleeves, we are determined to meet the £260,000 target!”
The financial contribution will help fund mobile chemotherapy units, which allow cancer patients to receive treatment in a restful environment closer to home, easing the pressure and expense of travelling long distances for treatment.
Rosa Woodley, charity fundraiser for Hope for Tomorrow, said: “We are extremely grateful for all the money Evans Halshaw has raised for us so far.”
