Car dealership delights cancer charity with Christmas Car gift

24th December 2015

A car dealership in Sheffield has given a local cancer charity a special Christmas gift in support of their vital work with cancer patients and their families right across the region.

Pentagon Sheffield has set the wheels in motion to support Weston Park Hospital Cancer Charity by handing over the keys to a brand new Jeep Renegade. On Friday the 18th December, Pentagon Sheffield were delighted to see representatives from Weston Park Hospital's dedicated charity collect the striking vehicle, which will ensure the charity can continue to support life-changing projects and initiatives across South Yorkshire and beyond. Weston Park Hospital Cancer Charity is the only dedicated charity for Weston Park Hospital and exists to support the world-class cancer research and to improve the treatment and care for people living with cancer. Throughout 2016 the charity will fund various projects to enable the continued improvement of Weston Park Hospital; including the expansion of research studies, improving the way cancer treatments are delivered and supporting the ongoing care provisions of patients and their families affected by cancer. Pentagon Sheffield, who are based just off the Sheffield Parkway, specialise in new and second hand car sales, genuine Jeep parts and Jeep servicing and maintenance. General Manager at Pentagon Sheffield, Danny Whitehead said, -It is an absolute honour for Pentagon to be supporting its local cancer hospital and charity by providing a vehicle to ensure they are able to continue their crucial work with local cancer patients. -The provision of this new Jeep is a continuation of the long and rewarding relationship between Pentagon and Weston Park Cancer Charity that contributes towards improving the lives of thousands of people fighting cancer now and into the future. Amongst other things, the new vehicle will help ensure the fundraisers keep regular contact with donors, attend profitable fundraising events and help increase awareness of the charity's work across the Sheffield City region. Charity Director, Samantha Kennedy said, -The vehicle will not only get us from A to B, it will be a valuable asset to the fundraising team and ensure we can gain regular access to the outreach areas surrounding Sheffield where many of Weston Park Hospital's patients live as cost effectively as possible. -We are extremely grateful to Pentagon Sheffield for this generous gesture of goodwill and we are very much looking forward to continuing our relationship with them over the next few years. -Weston Park Hospital is facing a growing challenge as more and more people require its specialist services and the further afield the charity can spread its message, the more money is raised to support this increasing demand. The cancer charity is currently raising funds for its Christmas Star Appeal, which will ensure the continued funding of innovative research projects, cutting edge cancer treatments and sustained care for those fighting cancer. Donations to the Christmas Star Appeal l can be made via post, online at www.Christmasstarapppeal.org.uk or by texting WPCC15 followed by the amount you would like to donate (£1, £2, £3, £5 or £10) to 70070.
