Our competition raises money for the Layla-Mae Appeal ​

Our Hadfield Road dealership in Cardiff held a competition at a fundraising fete last Friday (June 17, 2016) to raise money for the Layla-Mae Appeal. 

We asked people to guess how many rugby balls we could fit in the boot of a Nissan Qashqai during the event, which was held by the Lollipop Lane Playgroup at Celtic Way Community Centre in Rhoose. 

Gareth Howells, our General Manager at the dealership, said: “We were delighted we could help the playgroup raise money for the Layla-Mae Appeal. 

“We held a competition to guess how many Cardiff Blues’ rugby balls were in the boot of a Nissan Qashqai. We charged £3 per guess and the winner won a Nissan GT-R track day experience. 

“We also worked with the Cardiff Blues to get a signed shirt to give to the playgroup for its raffle. Cardiff Blues’ rugby player Josh Navidi also made a special guest appearance at the fete to help sell raffle tickets, present the prizes and sign rugby balls for fans. After the competition we also sold the rugby balls for £3 each to raise even more money for the appeal.

“The total raised so far from the fundraising fete is more than £1,700 and they are still counting for a final figure.” 

The Layla-Mae Appeal is to raise money for eight-year-old, Layla-Mae, who was diagnosed with a brain tumour at the age of five, along with severe complex epilepsy, which has also caused autism and significant impairment to her memory and understanding.

Layla-Mae was transferred to Great Ormond Street Hospital in 2014 for specialist treatment and brain surgery and still remains under its specialist care. The Layla-Mae Appeal is to support Layla-Mae and her family by easing the costs and the financial implications of the journeys to Great Ormond Street Hospital.
