INFINITI RETAIL GROUP PARTNER WITH WELLCHILDInfiniti cars are travelling the roads all over the UK helping seriously ill children and their families with vital home makeovers thanks to our partnership with WellChild.
We have loaned two brand new Q30 models to WellChild for use in the charity’s work. This will help WellChild save money which would otherwise have been spent on hire cars and train travel.
The cars will be used for all the charity’s needs, but one of their key uses will be travelling the length and breadth of the country to Helping Hands projects, where WellChild organises teams of volunteers to remodel gardens or bedrooms at the family homes of seriously ill children and young people in order to make them more suitable and improve their quality of life.
WellChild Chief Executive Colin Dyer said: “We are grateful to Infiniti Retail Group for providing us with these two fantastic Q30 cars.
An organisation like WellChild needs to get across the country to support seriously ill
children and their families at home.Infiniti is providing us with that capability,empowering
us to be where we are needed, whilst also enabling us to redirect money saved in
travel costs towards other areas of our work.”
Jamie Buckley, Group Marketing Manager at Infiniti Retail Group said: “We are looking forward to a close and long standing relationship with WellChild.
Everyone associated with the charity is truly inspirational. The very soul of the Infiniti
brand is all about being elevated and driven to reach your full potential in life,
and so our partnership and the work the charity carries out
couldn’t be more fitting.”
