Whizz-Kidz and its amazing partner Jardine Motors Group were honoured at last night’s (20/04/16) Business Charity Awards with the accolade for best Charity Partnership, Aerospace, Aviation & Automotive.
Jardine Motors Group and Whizz-Kidz have been in partnership since 2014, and this award is testament to the enormous impact on the lives of disabled children and young people living across the UK.
The Group’s commitment to the partnership has been absolutely brilliant. All 3,000 of Jardine Motors Group’s staff are engaged with partnership activity, which has led to dealerships across the country organising hundreds of fundraising events. To date, the partnership has raised more than £480,000.
The Group has also generously donated two vans to Whizz-Kidz’s Mobile Community Service team, enabling the charity’s engineers to take their services to disabled children and young people where they live.
Ruth Owen OBE, Whizz-Kidz CEO, said:
“We are absolutely delighted that our partnership with Jardine Motors Group – and their amazing fundraising efforts – has been recognised by the Business Charity Awards. This prize is so richly deserved.
“I want to thank all of Jardine Motors Group’s staff, their friends, families and customers who’ve made this possible; their efforts are transforming the lives of disabled children across the UK, and of that they should be very proud indeed.”
