Autosmart Reaches out to EACH
5 February, 2020
When Seed Brothers were asked which charity they wanted to support with their 2019 Barrel For Life campaign, Andrew Seed knew straight away the team would raise monies for East Anglia’s Children’s Hospices.
Andrew Seed, local franchisee for East Anglia says, “We chose EACH as our nominated charity as the local hospice in Milton delivers customised care to families who have children or young people with life threatening conditions. We were very aware of the amazing help delivered to these families and we wanted to pledge our support with every coloured token that was dropped into our Barrel For Life box.”
Since November 2018, Team Seeds have installed 166 Barrel For Life’s in East Anglia which has enabled Autosmart to donate £1,660 to support Andrew’s pledge. Handing over the cheque gave Autosmart the chance to visit the hospice to see first hand what great support the teams provide and how the donated money will help.
Cheri Ward, Support Services Manager for Autosmart says, “Seeing first hand the facilities and support offered by the hospice has really brought home how important local fundraising is. It was breath taking to see the thought that had gone into the different rooms that give children and their families a way to relax and express themselves and the lengths that they go to make memories is incredible. We look forward to continuing with our support. ”
Emily Rose, EACH Fundraiser says; “We are very grateful to have been supported by Autosmart through the Barrel for Life scheme! EACH rely on the support of local companies and individuals to be able to keep delivering care to local life-threatened children and their families, so this gift from Autosmart is very much appreciated. It was an absolute pleasure to be able to give the Autosmart team a tour of Milton Hospice, and share with them the work we do across East Anglia.”
