Mitsubishi boost for children's charity

publication date: Feb 12, 2014

A Cheltenham-based charity has been given a boost after local business Cheltenham and Gloucester Mitsubishi donated two vehicles to help them carry out their vital work.


WellChild, a national charity that helps seriously ill children and their families across the UK, has just taken delivery of a brand new Mitsubishi Outlander and a Mitsubishi ASX, thanks to the dealership

based in the Meteor Business Park, Cheltenham Road East, Staverton. Tim Bagnall, Managing Director of CCR Mitsubishi, which runs the dealership, decided to contribute after hearing the charity was in need of support.

Colin Dyer, Chief Executive of the charity, said: “We’re absolutely thrilled that CCR Mitsubishi are supporting us. Through our partnership we’ll be able to reach many more families, which is exactly what we are here for.

“Not only does having these two vehicles make our lives a whole lot easier it also saves us a huge amount of money, enabling us to invest more money in charitable programmes for seriously ill children. It’s an absolute win-win for us.”

The charity will have the vehicles for a year and both parties are keen for the relationship to continue after that.

Tim Bagnall, Managing Director of CCR Mitsubishi, said: “WellChild are a national charity but they are based locally so we were keen to help them. They’ve told us that having the cars will make a huge difference to the charity and that is great to hear. We know they do vital work with seriously ill children and their families so we are more than happy to support them in this way.”

WellChild provides essential practical and emotional support for seriously ill children, young people and those who care for them to ensure they receive the best possible quality of care. The patron of the charity is Prince Harry.
