Pudsey Bear visited Lookers HQ to officially launched the Group's commitment to BBC Children in Need and the aim to raise £1 million. As Corporate Social Responsibility Director for the day, Pudsey helped to come up with some great fundraising ideas for Lookers to deliver over the year. Pudsey will be pushing the pedal (or should that be paws) to the metal and visiting Lookers dealerships across the coming months to support employees and customers in their fundraising efforts.
One such initiative will see Lookers’ customers enter a twice-yearly competition, which will give them an opportunity to donate to BBC Children in Need when they buy a new or used car. In return, customers could win a car up to the value of £25,000.
BBC Children in Need supports around 2,400 projects across the UK that are helping children facing a range of disadvantages. The charity’s vision is that every child in the UK has a safe, happy and secure childhood and the chance to reach their full potential. In the last year alone, BBC Children in Need has helped 480,000 children and young people in communities all across the UK.
Lookers CEO, Andy Bruce, said: “We are delighted to be supporting such a worthy cause and it is great to see the impact BBC Children in Need already makes in our communities. I’m certainly looking forward to encouraging all of our people across the business to get involved in some fantastic fundraising events as we aim to raise £1 million for this fantastic charity.”
