Last month we were delighted to announce Petal Cancer Research as Hippo Motor Group’s first quarterly charity of 2018. It’s just over a month in and we have already achieved more than imagined.
In January, we hit Hippo’s record sales month, selling more cars than we ever have over the last decade. This will be translated into our final quarterly donation figure as a percentage of each and every car sold throughout January – March will be donated to Petal. All funds contributed to the charity will go towards research into childhood cancers on behalf of Cancer Research UK.
Saturday 3rd February saw the celebration of the 20th year of Petal, ahead of World Cancer Day. And what better way to celebrate than a Roaring Twenties’ themed ball WITH an auction? It is safe to say the icing on the cake was Dr Mary Adams letting her hair loose and walking away with a rally experience for two with Hippo’s rally team, as well as a spa experience to recover from the wild ride. Hippo’s small auction prize raised a whopping £700 thanks to Mary, a big supporter of Petal.
We hope to end February with another generous amount to contribute towards Petal. You can donate here now to enable scientists to continue their life-saving research into childhood cancer.
