Inchcape drives charity giving  

Two of Inchcape UK’s Toyota retail centres have supported local community causes with charity donations using the Toyota Fund for a Better Tomorrow.

The nationwide programme of grants which Toyota retail centres can bid for to support charities, schools and community projects in their area were secured by Inchcape Toyota in Sandhurst and Inchcape Toyota in Basingstoke.

Toyota in Sandhurst helped Uplands Primary School to create a new outdoor learning area with a charity donation of £2,000 and volunteering support. Jason Harrison, general manager at Inchcape Toyota Sandhurst, said, ‘At Inchcape we’re keen to support the development of future talent for the automotive and engineering sectors. Supporting local children to engage in STEM subjects is a great way to do this. We had a great time building the new outdoor learning areas, and we hope the children at the school enjoy them just as much.’

Meanwhile, Inchcape Toyota in Basingstoke donated £1,550 to SeeAbility’s Heather House as part of its ongoing support for the Tadley-based residential home which provides high-quality specialist nursing services for people with rare and life-limiting conditions. The grant will help the residential home to refurbish its gym and buy new equipment to support its physiotherapy programme. T

Andy Hollis, general manager at Inchcape Toyota Basingstoke, added, ‘Myself and several of my colleagues have visited Heather House to spend time with the patients and staff. We all found it a very moving experience and we’re delighted to be able to help them buy the equipment they need to continue providing the best quality care for young people with complex needs and life-limiting conditions.’
