Harrogate Volkswagen challenge aims to raise £2,500 for St Michael’s Hospice.

Harrogate Volkswagen has accepted St Michael’s ‘You’re Inspired’ challenge during October and is aiming to raise £2,500 for the local Hospice. The popular fund raising competition will see St Michael’s give the Volkswagen retailer £100 and challenge them to turn it in to a larger amount to give back to the Hospice. Harrogate Volkswagen Brand Manager Kevin Howe said, “We’ve tasked our Valeting team with washing every single car that comes into our workshop during October and will be asking our aftersales customers to donate an amount they believe the wash to be worth. Everything we collect will go straight to St Michael’s.”

“But the hard work isn’t just confined to the Valeting team” said Kevin. “The whole team will be helping to wash and vacuum vehicles of any make or model on the used car forecourt every Saturday between 10am - 1pm in October in return for a donation".

The staff here always love a challenge, and we’re really looking forward to helping what is a great cause that’s close to our hearts.” St Michael’s spend £5m a year helping people with terminal illnesses across the Harrogate district – with around 80% of funds coming from donations from local businesses and individuals. The ‘You’re Inspired’ challenge helps raise thousands of pounds every year to help continue the Hospice’s great work. Harrogate Volkswagen, being part of the Sytner Group, allows all employees to take a paid day off every year to raise funds or offer practical help for local charities.
