George Thomas Hospice Care motors away with our support

A CARDIFF-BASED charity will this year (2015) be receiving support from our dealership on Hadfield Road after it was chosen as its Charity of the Year.

Throughout 2015 our staff at the outlet will be fundraising for George Thomas Hospice Care, which provides specialist home-based palliative care for people suffering from cancer and other life threatening illness.

Nicky Piper MBE, Corporate Fundraising & Events Manager for George Thomas Hospice Care, said: “We are thrilled that Wessex Garages has chosen George Thomas Hospice Care to be its Charity of the Year for 2015.

“Having discussed the year ahead with General Manager, Gareth Howells it looks like there is going to be a number of exciting events to look forward to."

George Thomas Hospice Care was established in 1984 and has helped more than 22,000 patients and their families in Cardiff.

Nicky added: “We help those suffering from cancer and other life-threatening illnesses, their families and carers at a most difficult and stressful period in their lives.

“We are committed to personal dignity, quality of life and the highest possible standards of care and service."

The dealership will be doing a variety of fundraising events for the charity throughout the year, such as fancy dress days and staff challenges .

Gareth added: “We are all really excited to be raising money for George Thomas Hospice Care in 2015.

“This is the first time our dealership has supported the charity and we are looking forward to raising funds to help people with cancer and other life-threatening illnesses and their close family and friends."
