Following the Third Sector Business Charity Awards 2018 shortlist being released earlier this week, we are delighted to announce that CarShop has been shortlisted, for our partnership with national charity Global’s Make Some Noise, in the Charity Partnership – Automotive and Transport category.
Launched in 2017, the CarShop Cares Charity Programme teamed up with Global’s Make Some Noise as their national charity partner. Global’s Make Some Noise is a national charity giving much needed help and funding to smaller charities and projects that very often struggle to get their voices heard. Since their launch in 2014 they have supported an amazing 134 different projects across the UK.
So far throughout the partnership, CarShop Cares has raised an astonishing total of £94,812 for Global’s Make Some Noise. This has been achieved through various events and fundraising projects including the National Three Peaks Challenge, a charity ball and store-led events such as auctions and quiz nights.
On top of this, each CarShop store has implemented a ‘pink coin’ process by which customers can choose between two local charities, one supported by Global’s Make Some Noise and the other chosen by CarShop employees. They receive a pink coin upon purchase of a car and can decide which charity to give it to, CarShop will then donate £1 to the charity of their choice. This process alone has raised over £18,000 for local charities.
CarShop is fully committed to supporting charity projects and continues to encourage colleagues to get involved with the fundraising through a number of initiatives, these include a paid Colleague giving-back-day, a generous £15,000 budget to support fundraising projects and the option to donate any ‘reward points’ they have earned to Global’s Make Some Noise. Going forward into 2018, CarShop Cares has pledged to raise another whopping £80,000 for charity this year.
The Awards presentation will be held on Wednesday 23rd May 2018 at the London Marriott Hotel, so watch this space and wish us luck!
