Rygor Team makes Egg-cellent Start to Charity Fundraising Year

Thursday 5th April 2018

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.

Rygor’s Charities of the Year initiative was set up back in 2015 to enable the company’s team members to nominate and vote to support charities which benefit some of the local communities which the company calls home. 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.

Getting the fundraising ball rolling this year was the Rygor team’s annual jeans day, followed by a quiz night held by the team at the company’s Westbury branch. Together these events raised more than £370 for Rygor’s 2018 Charities of the Year.

The team has also 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.”

Tim Stacey, Rygor managing director, said: “It is exciting to see our fundraising for 2018 get underway and our team members getting involved. Over the next few months we have many more events and activities planned, starting with a showroom cycle challenge in April, where our team members pedal throughout the day to raise funds for our charities. A huge thank you to all our team members who have already helped raise money or made Easter egg donations so far this year.”
