More than 160 staff and directors at Inchcape Fleet Solutions spent a day fundraising on 28 May, donating more than £2,000 to registered charity Guide Dogs.
The vehicle leasing and fleet management organisation manages the charity’s 520-strong fleet and donates a percentage of its annual management fee back to Guide Dogs.
The fundraising activities included: the directors adopting fancy dress and hosting a lunchtime barbecue, a Guide Dogs-themed obstacle course, a celebrity dog quiz, a champagne raffle, a treasure hunt, and a stall selling dog-themed cakes.
Terry Bartlett, managing director of Inchcape Fleet Solutions, said: “Over the years we have supported many local and national charities. As we have a business partnership in place with Guide Dogs we thought it was only natural to raise as much money as possible for a very worthwhile charity.”
Gordon Smith, business support manager at Guide Dogs, added: “We receive no government funding so are completely reliant on donations to continue the vital work we do.
“We are therefore tremendously grateful to Inchcape Fleet Solutions for all its support, not just as a result of this special fundraising day, which was fantastic, but in helping us spend all funds raised wisely throughout the year. The enthusiasm and commitment of the staff continues to be overwhelming and inspiring.”
