MotoNovo Finance’s Extra Mile – Community Impact Award

By 4 Min Read


MotoNovo Finance’s Extra Mile Awards have evolved to recognise dealers and brokers who have indeed gone that extra mile, in their community, for their customers and in their partnership approach.

We want to highlight just some of the community involvement undertaken by dealers of all sizes right across the UK. Every year, it is this category that continues to be the most challenging to judge simply because there are so many high quality submissions;

Bridgend Motor Group “A brilliant example of a dealer going the extra mile. Bridgend Group Manager Graham Kirkwood is an ambassador for Ayrshire Hospice, and in addition to this commitment, the business has run an annual ball for the past twenty years to raise funds for the hospice that has raised over £1M to date.”Judges’ Comment

“We’ve been working with Manchester Youth Zone for five years and are proud to have been able to support them in several different ways. Alongside an annual financial donation, we’ve sponsored family food parcels and helped to pack and distribute them. We also participated in the MYZ 100 challenge, have volunteered to run activities at the centre, donated TVs and laptops, funded a new sensory room and revamp of the Makers’ Space, purchased a minibus, and helped support young people build their own businesses by judging the centre’s take on Dragon’s Den. Almost all our team members have been involved with the Youth Zone in one way or another, whether it’s visiting the centre to work directly with children and young people, contributing to our annual Christmas toy drive, or taking part in fundraising challenges such as Tough Mudder, the Manchester 10K, or our regular quiz nights.” – CarFinance 247

“One of our main core values is caring, whether that be for colleagues, customers, or charity. Supporting our community is vital part of that, we care for our community and believe in giving back. With over 70 local employees, we feel an obligation to give back to the place which helped us grow as a business and a family. Our main aim is to try and support those who need it the most. It’s impossible to support every cause, so we choose carefully which charity we feel aligns the most with our core values.” – Ryan O’Donnell, Lindleys Autocentres.

“Charity starts at home, so I want to support the local community and where you can see the results. We work within the local community, and a portion of our profit goes to a variety of different areas such as local schools but also to those that are less fortunate.” Javid, Amanah Prestige

The Community Impact Award recognises and celebrates the commitment of so many dealers across the UK to supporting the community in which they operate.

The winners recognised by the MotoNovo Extra Mile Community Impact Awards over the years are just the tip of the iceberg of the generosity and spirit of so many dealers who make a difference in the community they’re a part of.
