Bickerton Škoda get us back on the road in ‘Rapid’ time
Bickerton Škoda, located on Penistone Road, has generously offered the latest Škoda Rapid to the Cancer Charity to enable our vital work across the region to continue.
The car will be highly visible on roads all around the region due to its striking purple and white design, and those who do spot it and tweet a photo will be in with a chance of winning a prize.
To coincide with the handing over of the vehicle, Bickerton Škoda and the Cancer Charity are encouraging members of the public to enter a competition to win a brand new Škoda Citigo, by visiting www.winaskoda.co.uk.
This week, members of our team were delighted to receive the car, which was wrapped up with a large bow and given as a 20th birthday present to the charity, at the Bickerton Škoda dealership.
Weston Park Hospital Cancer Charity is the only dedicated charity for Weston Park Hospital and exists to support world-class cancer research and to improve treatment and care for people living with cancer.
This year, we are marking 20 years of fighting cancer locally by funding a wide variety of projects for the hospital, including the completion of the new Clinical Research Unit and the Day Case refurbishment.
When our previous vehicle encountered brake problems recently, an appeal was launched on social media for help to find a suitable replacement.
Charity Director, Samantha Kennedy said: “Access to and the use of a charity car is vital for our staff and volunteers to continue their work across the region.
“From distributing collection boxes to attending cheque presentations, our team is continually on the move, working within the wider community to ensure that we provide a dedicated and flexible service to our loyal supporters.
“We are incredibly grateful to Škoda for supporting us in such a generous way during our 20th anniversary year, and hope that this kind gesture will provide further opportunities for the charity and Bickerton Škoda to work together in the future.”
As a Škoda main dealer with over 25 years’ experience, Bickerton Škoda is dedicated to providing a professional and personalised service to Škoda customers in South Yorkshire.
Sales Manager at Bickerton Škoda, Chris Lumb said: “It is great that we have this opportunity to support the region's local specialist cancer hospital and provide a suitable vehicle for the charity to carry out its important work improving the lives of cancer patients and their families.
“On seeing the plea for help, it was an obvious decision for us to provide the charity with a car, and one which we hope will cement our relationship further with this very worthy local cause.
“If you do spot the car on its travels in and around Sheffield let us and everyone know its whereabouts, to help raise the visibility of this fantastic charity. Use the hashtag #spotourskoda on Twitter & Facebook and let’s get the profile raised and money donated!”
