Staff at a local car dealership will be pulling out all of the fundraising stops for Comic Relief over the next few weeks in the build up to Red Nose Day on March 13.
Vantage Toyota Knaresborough is one of 10 Toyota dealerships in Vantage Motor Group that have collectively pledged to raise £40,000 for Red Nose Day.
Teams at each dealership have devised their own fundraising challenges, and the ‘dream team’ at the York Road dealership are running a series of activities, including an off-site car wash and a team coast-to-coast drive.
As an official partner for Red Nose Day, Toyota is the only exclusive retailer of Red Noses for Cars and they will be available at the Knaresborough dealership, with all proceeds going to the charity.
Jon Banner, Toyota brand director at Vantage Motor Group, said: “As the third-largest Toyota dealer group in the UK it’s important we use this as an opportunity to raise vital funds through embracing some real community spirit.”
The money raised by Red Nose Day assists a wide range of initiatives for the Comic Relief charity, focused on creating lasting change for people and communities facing tough challenges in the UK and Africa.
