G3 Remarketing support the cost of a nurse!

Thursday, 15 June 2017
Car auction firm G3 Remarketing  have donated an incredible £40,000 to cover the cost of employing a nurse here at the Hospice.

This is the latest in a series of fundraising and donation drives from G3 Remarketing, which announced last year that they had donated a sum of £30,000 to the Hospice. The company’s founder and director, Matt Dale, holds the Hospice close to his own heart, after his dad passed away here in 2010.

Since that date, the company’s founder and director, Matt Dale, has run four marathons and an ultra-marathon in a bid to raise much-needed funds for us. But wanting to do more, G3 Remarketing also put in a mechanism whereby the firm donates a percentage profit from each vehicle sold.

Commenting on this latest initiative, Matt said: “We recently met with the fundraising team at the Hospice to brainstorm ideas for raising more money. They told us that what they really need is greater business support – that’s what sparked us to take action and donate the cost of a nurse!

“What the Prince of Wales Hospice does for the Yorkshire region is fantastic. Any money raised goes straight into maintaining and supporting the facility – not towards marketing budgets and executives’ wages. So, we’re calling on other organisations within our region to get involved. And who knows, if enough firms get on board, we could end up paying for the whole team’s wages!”

Laura Bennett, The Prince of Wales Hospice’s fundraising manager, commented: “G3 is by far our most generous corporate supporter in the region. That means a lot, especially because of the support we have provided to relatives of G3 employees. It shows that they are confident in our care and want it to be available for other local people with a life-limiting illness.

“It would be fantastic to see other companies follow their example!”
