Lloyd Blackpool has won The Long Service Award for its support of Cash for Kids, at the Time to Shine Awards 2019.
The Blackpool based BMW & MINI dealership has been supporting Cash for Kids for the past 6 years. Stephanie de Looze, Lloyd BMW Marketing Manager said: “The relationship has become very special to us. Whether dressing as superheroes or zombies, holding Christmas markets or collecting vans full of Christmas gifts, we are proud to dedicate complete commitment and enthusiasm to this amazing charity. We truly believe in Cash for Kids and our Head of Business, Mark Powell, has sat on the Cash for Kids local executive board for the past 4 years.”
Charity Manager for Cash for Kids, Nikki Thompson, added: “Mark and all the team at Lloyd Blackpool are the loveliest of people and have become very dear friends.”
“The sponsored car that we have from Lloyd means the world to us. It gives us a fabulous presence at events, great brand awareness and visibility. It also helps us maintain such a high contribution level of nearly 90%.
“The Lloyd team has taken part in so many of our events from cycling in Ride London, taking part in It’s a Knockout, attending our Charity Ball and even volunteering as elves at our Mission Christmas HQ. The MINI Halloween event is always such a great occasion and attended by so many families.
“The support from Lloyd for the Mission Christmas appeal is second to none. They create a beautiful Christmas Market event each year and encourage their clients and other local companies to donate gifts and monetary contributions to the cause. For the last few years the staff have taken part in Christmas Jumper day to raise additional funds.”
