On Monday 26 October 2015 Shoreham Vehicle Auctions held its annual charity auction in aid Chestnut Tree House children’s hospice for the fifth year. The event raised an incredible £13,700, more than double the original fundraising target. This amount is enough to pay for two days of all care services provided by Chestnut Tree House, both at the House near Arundel and in families’ own homes across East and West Sussex and South East Hampshire. Shoreham Vehicle Auctions have held this annual event since 2011 and have now raised an incredible £29,365 in total for Chestnut Tree House.
The organisers received fantastic support from the region’s motor trade, with dealers and motor groups from Sussex and Surrey donating vehicles, track days and gift experiences for the auction. The auction, held in the evening, saw donated vehicles going under the hammer for more than twice their market value. Donations from Frosts Cars, Yeomans Group, Tates Motor Group, Harwoods Group and H.A. Fox Jaguar Guildford were all quickly snapped up by traders and buyers, showing the generous support for Chestnut Tree House. Furthermore, Shoreham Vehicle Auctions waived all fees for each vehicle donated and pledged an extra £250 for each sale. On more than one occasion, traders and buyers purchased lots, only to donate them back into the auction to maximise funds.
Alex Wright, Managing Director of Shoreham Vehicle Auctions said: “We are extremely grateful and touched by the generosity of the motor trade in Sussex and the surrounding areas, not to mention the audience of new and existing buyers, who ensured that it was a fantastic evening. We couldn’t believe the final totals; everyone at Shoreham is ecstatic with the money raised, which will make a real difference to this fantastic and humbling cause.”
Caroline Roberts-Quigley, Community Fundraiser for Chestnut Tree House said: “We are amazed and incredibly grateful to Shoreham Vehicle Auctions and everyone involved in the event for this fantastic support. The amount raised will pay for all care costs on both Thursday 4 August and Wednesday 5 October 2016 as part of our Pay for a Day scheme. Chestnut Tree House children’s hospice provides specialist palliative care services to 300 children and young people aged 0 - 19 with life-limiting and life-shortening conditions in East Sussex, West Sussex and South East Hampshire. It costs well over £3.5 million each year to provide all our care services. Families are never charged for their care and the hospice receives less than 7% from central government, so we rely heavily on the generosity, help and support of local community. Once again I would like to say a big thank you to the organisers at Shoreham Vehicle Auctions for their ongoing support and this amazing result from the 2015 auction.”
