Rock on the Rooftop gets support from Wessex

A NEWPORT charity event taking place at the Celtic Manor Resort this Sunday (July 31, 2016) is being supported by our dealership in the city.

Wessex Garages on Newport Retail Park has provided a number of raffle prizes for the Rock on the Rooftop event in aid of St David’s Hospice Care on Sunday, July 31.

Martin Watts, our General Manager at the dealership, explained: “St David’s Hospice Care is our chosen Charity of the Year for 2016 and we’re on hand to help them in any way we can throughout the year. This time we’ve given the charity seven amazing prizes for their raffle at their fundraising Rock on the Rooftop event.

“The prizes include the chance for six people to win a Fiat, Kia, Hyundai, Renault or Dacia model to use for a weekend. The winners can choose their preferred model.

“The chosen vehicle is subject to the availability and we will need copies of the winner’s driving licence and a loan form will need to be filled out when the vehicle is collected. There will also be a mileage restriction.

“As well as this we will also be donating a voucher for a free oil and filter change worth £100 and a free valet. We wish the charity the best of luck with the event.”

There will be live music from 2pm including soul, jazz and funk and Big Mac’s Wholly Soul Band will be headlining the event. Attendees will be served canapés and a drink on arrival, and then an al fresco hog roast.

Gemma Carter, Community/Events Fundraiser for Monmouthshire and Newport at St David’s Hospice Care, said: “A huge thank you to Wessex Garages for these fantastic prizes. They are going to be an amazing addition to the list of prizes at Rock on the Rooftop. We’re very grateful for all their support.”
