An incredible £1,000 has been raised by Vauxhall employees for the Mary Seacole Housing Association (MSHA).
The huge sum was raised through donations from an Employee Quiz Night and a Casual Friday collection in January. Elaine Cruise, Training and Events Manager for the MHSA, was thrilled with the donation: “Never has Mary Seacole received a lump sum cheque written for this much money! We are so happy and sincerely thank Vauxhall Motors, this will make a huge difference to us this year.”
The Mary Seacole Housing Association is a locally based charity that seeks to improve the lives of young, homeless people in Luton. They provide quality, supported accommodation to young people, enabling them to develop the skills needed to move from a state of dependence to one of independence. The charity is close to employees’ hearts and is very much in line with Vauxhall’s corporate strategy of supporting young people in the local community.
Internal Communications Assistant Pamela Meegan felt this was an excellent charity to raise money for: ‘The MSHA is a very worthy charity. After visiting their hostels in the town centre, it became very clear to us that the charity goes above and beyond to make the lives of these young people better’.
Not only have Vauxhall employees put their hands in their pockets to reach the fantastic total of £1,000, they have also used their company supported volunteering days to clear out the hostel gardens. The charity is grateful for the time and support that Vauxhall employees donate to the MSHA, and they are always looking for volunteers to help out in their hostels.
