Greenhous Commercials raise £3000 for local palliative care charity. 💛

Local DAF truck dealership group, Greenhous Commercials, has presented a cheque for £3,000 to local charity Compton Care following another successful year of fundraising.
Since 2017 Greenhous Commercials has supported West Midlands based charity Compton Care who offer palliative care for people with complex and incurable conditions offering care services, expertise, emotional, practical and spiritual support from a range of dedicated employees and volunteers.
Greenhous Commercials Dealer Principal, John Turley, explained: “We chose to raise money for Compton Care because of the high quality, accessible care, and support offered to people in our community with life limiting conditions and their families in times of need. This year has given us the opportunity to continue to support a local cause within our community. The dedication of our colleagues to get involved from sponsored silences to bake sales is testament to the final amount donated.”
Over the past year, employees from Greenhous Commercials have been raising money and have successfully fundraised £3000. This was partially raised with help from local businesses donating prizes and days out to raffle at corporate and internal fundraising days, providing experiences to enjoy and share with family and friends.
The year of fundraising was finalised with all dealership employees invited to wear safari themed costumes including iconic duo Joe Exotic and Carole Baskin. The day included mini games, an employee bake-sale, raffles, and food stalls, raising a total of £1110!
We would like to thank all of our employees who helped make this day successful, with special thanks to Sian Elcock and Jessica Street for organising the day and working hard to get the donations that we have received below for our raffles and also promoting the day and taking photos to celebrate our day. In addition, we would like to give thanks to Stuart Gaunt for getting us two signed t-shirts by England Cricket Member, Matthew Mott. Andy Harley for helping to raise money at our two customer golf days this year. Karen Dudley at Kazza's Cake Hole, for baking our Safari themed Cake and Cupcakes. Finally, a huge thank you to John Turley, Dealer Principal & Director, General Manager for rounding our raised total of £2,480 up to an amazing £3000!
