We always love to highlight and praise our friends in the motor trade who support good causes, like Colin Ludwell Cars in Bristol.
Colin Ludwell Cars Ltd have been our partners for over 17 years, and when we heard about their continued to support for a wonderful charity and the new residents appearing in their showroom, we had to give them a special mention!
Colin Ludwell Cars Ltd have supported Wallace & Gromit’s Grand Appeal to raise money for the Bristol Children’s Hospital since its launch early 2013.
Wallace & Gromit’s Children’s Charity is a national charity raising funds to improve the lives of sick children in hospitals and hospices throughout the UK. Since 2003, Wallace & Gromit’s Children’s Charity has given over £2 million in grants to 291 projects in 93 different hospitals and hospices, providing life-saving medical equipment, free family accommodation, a range of arts, music and play therapy programmes, sensory equipment and facilities and respite care.
They are the only children’s charity supporting sick children in hospitals and hospices throughout the UK, and the charity has been supported by Aardman Animations, whose Oscar-winning characters Wallace & Gromit spearhead our fundraising.
For Colin Ludwell Cars, the highlight was it’s Gromit Unleashed Gromit Trail where 80 plus Gromits were designed by various celebrities and artists. These Gromits were then auctioned off to raise money for the Bristol Children’s Hospital. Colin Ludwell Cars made the first purchase of ‘Patch’ at the auction resulting in a huge £36,000.00 donation to the charity!
Shaun The Sheep has recently been added to the showroom, and how magnificent he looks indeed!
This is all fantastic work by everyone at Colin Ludwell Cars Ltd, and everyone at WAS would like to send them kudos, and praise for their sterling charitable donations.
