Aston Martin supports Willen Hospice
Aston Martin rev up their fundraising for Willen Hospice
Aston Martin have been loyal supporters of Willen Hospice for many years.
In their most recent fundraising initiative, they raffled off this exclusive artwork designed to commemorate their win at the 2017 24 Hours of Le Mans. The artwork was signed by Aston Martin Racing drivers Darren Turner and Jonny Adam (in the image).
The artwork was signed and won at the launch of the DB4 G.T. Continuation, the first new car to be made at Aston Martin Works in Newport Pagnell in 10 years. The event was attended by 250 guests at their workshop in Newport Pagnell and the artwork itself raised £1,100.
Aston Martin have chosen to support Willen Hospice as they are proud to be a local business supporting a local charity. Many of their past and current staff have been affected by the work that we do and have used the hospice or have had family use the hospice, so it is a charity close to their team’s hearts.
This isn’t the first time they have supported us or embarked on fundraising activities. They famously auctioned bricks from their old factory and donated the proceeds to Willen Hospice. This recent donation has taken them to a total fundraising amount of over £70,000.
