Local dealership supports hospice with car scheme

12th June 2018

A Worcestershire car dealership has pledged to support a local hospice with donations.

PJ Nicholls Ltd – which has dealerships in Malvern, Pershore, Evesham and Tewkesbury – has announced it will support St Richard’s Hospice in Worcester by donating £100 from each new stock car sold.

The firm decided to nominate the hospice as its Charity of the Year because many of its 60 strong staff have personal connections with the hospice.

Tom Nicholls, Managing Director at PJ Nicholls said : “We understand just how much St Richard’s does for people within our local community and how important its services are.  As a local family firm, we are committed to supporting our community and what better way than to pledge some funds to the hospice.  Giving back to such a worthwhile organisation is an honour and a privilege for us.”

Tom’s brother Adam and joint Managing Director of the firm has had family members cared for by the hospice in the past.

The scheme will run until the end of July 2018 and hopes to raise as much money as possible.

Ria Simons, Fundraiser at St Richard’s Hospice said : “We are so grateful for the generosity of PJ Nicholls with this new scheme.  It is a fabulous gesture that will have a real impact on the work we do and the services we provide.  Thank you so much!”

The way we work has been adapted, with many of our services delivered remotely – such as over the phone, or by video call. And we are working closely with other health care professionals in Worcestershire to share knowledge and expertise at this time.
