After announcing it’s 2018 Charities of the Year back in January, the team at Mercedes-Benz Vans and Trucks Dealer Group, Rygor Commercials, is driving its fundraising efforts forward.
This year the Rygor team is fundraising for Camp Mohawk, Shooting Star Chase and Wiltshire Air Ambulance. Shooting Star Chase provides hospice care to babies, children and young people in London and Surrey and Camp Mohawk is a multi-functional day centre for children with special needs and their families in Berkshire. Wiltshire Air Ambulance provides an essential Helicopter Emergency Medical Service (HEMS) in Wiltshire and surrounding areas.
Over the past few years, Rygor has raised more than £30,000 for six local charities and looks forward to adding to that total, this year.
The team has donated more than 70 Easter eggs for the children who use the facilities at Camp Mohawk. More than 500 families regularly visit Camp Mohawk to experience fun days out and create happy family memories, so these Easter eggs helped the children and their siblings enjoy the Easter period.
Annabel Hill, Fundraiser at Camp Mohawk, said: “Many of our visiting families struggle to access mainstream events due to their children’s disabilities and being able to come to Camp Mohawk and take part in an Easter Egg Hunt makes them feel included in all the seasonal fun. Thanks to Rygor staff for a superb response to the Easter Egg appeal.”
