The Sara Lee Trust is a charity that provides specialist care for patients of St Michael’s Hospice in St Leonards-on-Sea and the Rye, Winchelsea and District Memorial Hospital. Their services include counselling, psychological support, group activities and providing support to families.
As our chosen charity, the SLM group has been donating to The Sara Lee Trust every time we sell a new or used car.
Kerry Evans (Trust Lead Therapist) and Dan Redsull, (Trust CEO) were absolutely delighted to receive donations from the Toyota Charitable Trust and Enterprise Rent -A- Car Foundation Fund totalling £3,000. The Trust, who support local people living with cancer and other life threatening conditions (and their loved ones), are almost entirely reliant on the support of the local community and local businesses to fund their services.
The Sara Lee Trust would like to convey their sincere thanks to the St Leonards Motors Group for helping them to access this funding and also for supporting the charity, having raised just under £7,000 for the Trust in this financial year.
The Trust has recently begun development on a new purpose designed and disability compliant therapy centre on Sidley High Street where they will base a lot of their charitable work. The centre is due to be opened in the summer this year.
The building has been purchased using restricted reserves and the Sara Lee Trust are hoping to raise £15,000 from the local community to aid the refurbishment. You can donate and find out more about the refurbishment via their JustGiving page.
