Mercedes-Benz of Newcastle staff raise £570 for foundation
The team at Mercedes-Benz of Newcastle have been busy raising money for the Mat Davis foundation. Money raised for the foundation goes to support young people aged 18-30 who have been diagnosed with cancer in the Warwickshire area.
The foundation was set up at the wish of Mat Davis, a young man who after being diagnosed with an inoperable brain tumour, dedicated his time to raise over £12,000 for Cancer Research.
Mat sadly lost his battle aged 23, with his final wish being that a foundation was set up in his name to help others in a similar situation and to help his legacy live on.
The team at Newcastle wanted to help the foundation by organising a raffle with a difference – a one winner raffle! All staff were encouraged to bring in as many items as possible to contribute to the prize table, and to buy a strip of tickets for a chance to win the lot!
When Head of Business Rebecca Crewe made the draw, Neil Taylor from the sales team was the lucky winner, taking home many bottles of wine, gift sets and other donations from staff and family members.
During the one winner raffle, £570 was raised for the Mat Davis foundation.
