Good causes urged to come forward for funding support

Lancashire good causes have been urged to get in touch with a leading Blackpool company which is looking for a charity partner.

Lookers Volkswagen Blackpool is committed to finding a deserving organisation to benefit from its corporate fundraising activities.

Mike Pollitt, brand manager at the Ashworth Road business, said: “Every year our staff organise or take part in a range of fundraising activities, such as team building exercises and customer events.

“We can think of hundreds of deserving causes but as a Blackpool business we would ideally like all our efforts to benefit local people in the first instance.

“So we are inviting registered charities based in this area to get in touch and tell us about their work. The team here at the dealership will then vote for their favourite cause and fundraise for that organisation.”

Charities are asked to write to Mike Pollitt at Lookers Volkswagen Blackpool, Ashworth Road, Blackpool, Lancashire FY4 4UW or email with their details and a brief explanation of the work they do to support people in the Lancashire area.

Lookers Volkswagen Blackpool supplies new and approved used cars and a comprehensive after-sales service using genuine Volkswagen parts. The company is also a leading regional Motability provider.

Last year the company supported a charity ball in aid of Joseph’s Goal, a charity for children suffering from a rare life-limiting genetic disorder. Lookers Volkswagen provided a weekend motoring experience for the event, held at Wigan’s DW Stadium.
