Vauxhall retailer, Drive Weston-Super Mare, has played a pivotal role in ensuring thousands of children won’t be going without on Christmas morning. The dealership team have been working in partnership with charity, Every Child Needs Christmas, to deliver over 12,000 presents.
The retailer hosted the annual ‘Big Wrap’ event which saw the team, plus an army of 205 volunteers, gather in the dealership to make sure all the presents are ready for Santa’s sleigh. What’s more, the Drive team also raised over £1,000 towards the gifts themselves from hosting charity rugby matches and collecting customer donations. All in the team supplied ten van loads of presents, along with the drivers, to make sure everything got to its location on time.
Simon Strange, Sales Manager at Drive Vauxhall, commented: “To be able to support such a brilliant cause is a really rewarding one for the team, who have really pulled together to get all the presents wrapped and welcome all the volunteers into the dealership.
“The generosity showed has been staggering, with over £73,000 worth of gifts donated. I am sure the children receiving the presents will be over-the-moon on Christmas morning.”
