Wolverhampton Volkswagen hosts Macmillan fundraiser

A Midlands motors business joined the Macmillan party on Friday by baking, icing and decorating cakes.

Wolverhampton Volkswagen hosted its own World’s Biggest Coffee Morning and raised £301 for Macmillan Cancer Support.

Organiser Laura Beddows, a senior service advisor at Wolverhampton Volkswagen, said: “We had a brilliant day and are totally thrilled with the amount of money raised.

“Everyone at the dealership got involved by baking, donating raffle prizes, decorating the showroom and helping to sell the wonderful cakes and cupcakes to our generous customers.”

Laura, who had previously organised a ladies night and Comic Relief fundraiser, started organising the event about a month ago and received lots of help from colleagues and Macmillan.

“We had Macmillan t-shirts to wear, and a huge green and white balloon arch that gave a real party atmosphere to the morning.

“Thank you to everyone who came and supported us and especially to our driver Tony Price who donated champagne and a giant teddy bear for the raffle, Sugar Rush who donated the Macmillan themed cake and our super sales girl Kelly Aitcheson.”

Wolverhampton Volkswagen is part of the Trust Group, with Volkswagen sites in Stourbridge and Redditch.
