Mike Boyd, Westover Group Director, has presented Chrissie Wathen-Neal from Macmillan Cancer Support with a cheque for £3,440.00
The money was raised at coffee mornings and cake sales held at each of Westover’s 24 showrooms across Dorset and Wiltshire as part of Macmillan’s annual World’s Biggest Coffee Morning event.
The Westover teams across the region rallied together to support Macmillan, serving nearly 500 drinks to showroom visitors. Thanks to a tempting array of freshly baked cakes as well as piping hot teas and coffees, the showrooms delivered another stunning fundraising total. The Group has raised nearly £14,000 for Macmillan in the last three years.
In addition to a delicious array of cakes, tea and coffee (offered to customers in exchange for a donation), Westover Group contributed 50p for every cup of tea or coffee drunk, £5 for every test drive and £50 or every car bought or ordered on the day.
Over at Westover Nissan on Wallisdown Road in Poole - where a donation was made for every service customer who opted to borrow the all-electric Nissan LEAF as a loan car - the showroom’s service team raised an impressive £260.
“We were delighted to throw open our doors and support the World’s Biggest Coffee Morning again this year,” says Mike Boyd. “Our showrooms are ideally suited to hosting the events as we have plenty of space and a steady stream of visitors. Both our teams and our customers are always eager to get behind Macmillan and everyone here is more than happy to bake or eat some cakes and have a cuppa in the name of a good cause!
