We are delighted that the company have chosen us as their Charity of the Year following a personal experience that enabled them to value the end of life care that this region has to offer.
David Newman, Ridgeway’s Chairman said: “Sobell House is a charity which reaches out and touches a whole community and that’s something which stood out for us. My wife Kate and I have had personal experience of terminal illness in a community where, sadly, there was no offer of specialist end of life care or support for the family.”
Kate Newman, Director, adds: “Many people in Oxfordshire will have heard of Sobell House but are unlikely to be aware of the care it offers to families experiencing a difficult time. We are hoping to change that and help, not just financially, but also by talking to our extensive Oxfordshire network. Sobell House is a beacon of hope and one that everyone should have access to in their hour of need. We hope that our commitment for the next year can help raise the profile of Sobell House and encourage more charitable support to secure its future in our county.”
In addition to its corporate sponsorship, the 300 members of staff from all of Ridgeway’s Oxfordshire dealerships also plan to hold a diary of events over the year to help Sobell House raise its target.
