We are very lucky as a company to have been involved with so many worthwhile causes. It has allowed us to work closely with charities, become familiar with their incredible work and feel like we’ve made a difference once we have been able to reveal the fantastic amounts we have raised over the course of our 10 years in business.
As we have grown we have been able to raise more funds by participating in one off events such as Josephs Goal, MacMillan’s Coffee Morning, Jeans for Genes as well as a variety of events such as:
June 2015 – Hippo Motor Group Football Tournament – Alongside 15 other teams we organised a football tournament in aid of Pendleside Hospice raising £550.
October 2015 -Hippo Humour – An evening of comedy raising money for Pendleside Hospice in 2015. With the help of local businesses and 100% of ticket sales being donated we raised a fantastic £11,556.
January – December 2016 – Quarterly Charity Commitment – In late 2015 we selected four incredible charities that we would represent for each quarter. These included Spacious Places, Children in Need, Milly’s Smiles and Cancer Help Preston. This was accumulated from each car we sold and the group raised over £2,400.
May 2016 – Hippo Motor Group V’s Organic Insurance – Another sporting event which we were lucky to organise to raise money for East Lancashire Hospice by competing in an 11 a side game at Blackburn Rovers, Ewood Park. We raised £1,100.
July 2016 – MacMillan Summer Lights – An event organised by our account managers and funded by our directors to ensure that all money raised would be 100% donated to MacMillan and the great work they do. The evening raised £688.
March 2017 – Butterfly Ball – A fantastic event which has raised over £250,000 in the last five years through an annual ball. Hundreds of guests don their best attire and raise money in aid of the Princes Trust. Hippo Motor Group were one of the 2017 Gold Sponsors for the event.
March 2017 – Red Nose Day – The entire Hippo Motor Group team joined in with the fun of Comic Relief and held a non uniform day at the showroom and prep centre site which raised £102!
July 2017 – Bradley Lowery Fundraising – Following Bradleys sad passing but inspirational life workpalces throughout the UK showed support and aimed to fundraise through a non uniform, football colour themed day. Hippo Motor Group took part and raised £90!
2017 see’s us enter our tenth year as a group and with this in mind we will be stepping up our involvement in charities and hope to exceed our previous efforts. If you feel you know of a charity that could do with our help then please email our Marketing Manager at email@example.com to discuss.
