Motorline and BCA combined to raise hundreds of pounds for Royal Brompton & Harefield Hospitals Charity during the Motorline Mega Sale at BCA Paddock Wood on Wednesday, 14 March.
Motorline donated a 2004 Nissan Almera and Adrian Tilley of Max Motors donated a signed Chelsea shirt, with both sold on behalf of Royal Brompton & Harefield Hospitals Charity. The charity raises funds to support both hospitals in their fight against heart and lung disease.
BCA offered the gavel to Motorline’s Group Used Car Buyer, Chris Willett and he conducted the sale of the two charity lots. The Nissan Almera, purchased by Mark Wortley of Margray Vehicle Sales, Market Rasen raised £575 and the Chelsea shirt sold to Liutauras Miksys representing Auto City Motors, Eltham for £475. Further funds were raised from additional private donations on the day.
Chris Willett commented, “I’d like to thank BCA and its customers for helping Motorline to raise a substantial sum for this most worthy cause. Royal Brompton & Harefield Hospitals Charity does fantastic work raising money for equipment, research and amenities that fall outside of NHS funding. The Charity’s projects are vital to patients’ lives and wellbeing, making these hospitals not only excellent but extraordinary.”
Ashley Westpfel, Fundraising Director for the charity, added, “Many thanks to Motorline, the team at BCA Paddock Wood and their customers on the day for raising hundreds of pounds to support the work of Royal Brompton and Harefield Hospitals. The work of both hospitals in research and treatment of heart and lung disease gives hope to all those suffering with these debilitating and life-threatening conditions, which could affect any of us at any time.”
Jon-Paul Paviour, Auction Centre Manager for BCA Paddock Wood added “We were delighted to host this fundraising auction on behalf of Royal Brompton & Harefield Hospitals Charity. Our customers dug deep and bid competitively on both lots, raising £1,050 which was then added to several private donations made on the day.”
