Hippo Motor Group is excited to announce that its chosen charity for 2019 is Blackburn Youth Zone.

Blackburn Youth Zone is a 21st-century youth hub located at the heart of Blackburn, open to young people aged 5 to 25 years old. The youth club facility aims to change the prospects offered to young people in the area.

Tom Preston, Managing Director, said: “We’re excited to sponsor Blackburn Youth Zone this year. Hippo Motor Group has always been committed to working alongside charities that benefit the local area. We chose to lend our support to Blackburn Youth Zone because of their hard work in helping local young people develop into responsible adults full of integrity.”

Tom added: “Blackburn Youth Zone’s core ‘HEART’ principles of honesty, excellence, accountability, respect and teamwork resonate with me as these are the values we seek to promote here at Hippo Motor Group”

As part of our partnership with Blackburn Youth Zone, Hippo is headline sponsoring Blackburn Beer Festival. The festival is organised by Blackburn Youth Zone and takes place from Friday, May 3rd – Sunday, May 5th 2019 at Blackburn Rugby Club.

The event is expected to welcome over 1,000 beer enthusiasts to sample more than 60 real ales from across the North West and beyond, as well as lagers and ciders. What’s more, visitors can enjoy live music each evening as well as rugby matches on Saturday and Sunday.

Tom commented: “The Blackburn Beer Festival is a fantastic event for Hippo to be a part of, and we are very excited to be headline sponsors for this year’s event. It promises to be a weekend of enjoyment for families and friends, although as a business in the car industry we can only urge visitors to enjoy their beer responsibly!”
