Share With Campaign
Our Share With charitable campaign was launched earlier this year, designed to support the charities and community groups in our beloved city of Peterborough, where our two SW showrooms are located.
We’re a used car supermarket with a conscience. As a large employer in Peterborough and the surrounding communities, we believe it's important to play our part in that community, giving back where we can. Every three months, we’ve pledged to give away a grant of £500 to support those who need it most.
In September, we awarded our first Share With grant to Families First Peterborough. The charity is committed to supporting children, young people and families who have the most need through positive activities. Find out more by clicking here.
This December, we have once again been encouraging local charities and community groups to apply for a £500 grant in time for Christmas. The winning cause has been selected by a panel of SW Car Supermarket employees, including our CEO Anton Khan, and Operations Director, John Marshall and we are pleased to announce that we have chosen Bearded Villains East Anglia (BVEA) to receive the grant this time around - congratulations to them!
In the past few years, these community heroes have raised thousands of pounds to support charities and causes within East Anglia. More recently, Bearded Villains has collected public donations of food, clothing and toys to deliver to vulnerable people in the local community, as well as care packages for those shielding or needing extra help.
With our £500 donation, BVEA will be able to support the Paediatric Department at Peterborough City Hospital A&E. The grant will help purchase much-needed items from their wish list, such as sensory lights and interactive toys.
