By automotive-mag.com 2 Min Read

Shoreham Vehicle Auctions (SVA) raised £30,000 during its March charity auction week for the Chestnut Tree House Children’s Hospice (CTH).

Two auctions were hosted by SVA during March, a car auction and an LCV auction. Yeomans Group, Peter Cooper Group, Tates Group, Hendy Group and Frosts4Cars were among dealers who donated customer part exchange cars to the auction as well as pledging support for families using CTH’s facilities.

Alex Wright, SVA’s MD said: “We are celebrating the warmth and generosity of the motor trade based on the south coast which has helped us pass the £300,000 mark. The auctions were a major success as our buyers and vendors have grown very fond of supporting such as great cause.”

SVA and CTH have been working together for 14 years, raising £300,000. The highest price paid for a part exchange vehicle at the auction was £1,500 for a VW Caddy van.

Based in Arundel, West Sussex, the CTH cares for around 300 children and young adults with life-limiting conditions and provides services including hydrotherapy and multi-sensory activities.

Becki Jupp, CEO of CTH said: “We are so proud to be working with Shoreham and the south coast motor industry.

“They have supported us consistently for over a decade and we really appreciate their backing. We would like to thank everyone that has helped raise money again for our charity in 2024.”
