Charity of the Year for Pentagon
Thank you to Pentagon Derby for choosing Sight Support Derbyshire as one of its two charities of the year.
Hollie Fensome from Pentagon popped into Markeaton School, Derby, to meet the members of our youth group as they decorated some giant ducks ready for the Ey Up Mi Duck Race 2018.
She presented us with a cheque for £1,500, which is a great way to boost our services for local people affected by sight loss. We look forward to working with Pentagon Derby over the next year.
TC Harrison Ford Take To The River for Ey Up Mi Duck Race
As main sponsors of the Ey Up Mi Duck Race 2018, the support of TC Harrison Ford Derby helped us beat last year’s total to raise £6,800 towards our services.
As well as enjoying the camaraderie of inter-departmental duck decorating ready for the Best Dressed Duck contest, members of staff promoted the event by holding family trails in the showroom over the May bank holidays, and helped out on the day.
The Ford Mustang was also a big draw on race day!
Before the event, Garry Hawksworth, Regional New Car Sales Manager at TC Harrison Ford, said: “We’ve always had great fun getting involved with the Ey Up Mi Duck Race in whatever capacity we can.”
