OUR 28TH CHARITY CAR RAFFLE HAS LAUNCHED!

OUR 28TH CHARITY CAR RAFFLE HAS LAUNCHED!

Milton Keynes Community Foundation is so proud of all the brilliant work that local charities and community groups do to make Milton Keynes such a fantastic place to live.

All through the year, we visit projects that demonstrate the real sense of community that is growing rapidly each day. Our Community Car Raffle is one of the rare times when many of those groups come to centre:mk and raise awareness of their wonderful work while raising valuable funds that will feed into their communities.

Who wouldn’t want to win a Car for a pound?
This year’s grand prize is a Volkswagen Polo Match: 1.0 Litre, 5-speed Manual, 5 door in White, generously donated by Volkswagen Group UK Ltd.

Money raised supports charities and community Groups in Milton Keynes making a difference to local lives. Get your tickets at the car in Middleton Hall centre:mk or from your local charity representative,

Michelle from Age UK Milton Keynes said:
“Funding from the Community Car Raffle has been used to support services, such as befriending, which reduce loneliness and isolation among older people in Milton Keynes.”

We are really grateful to Volkswagen UK for the generous donation of the winning car and centre:mk for the fantastic space to display the car and enable many of our groups to broaden awareness of their work.

Shaun Rhodes, Head Of Marketing for centre:mk said:
“We are delighted to continue our longstanding support for the Community Foundation and in particular the car raffle, which has become a much valued Christmas tradition in its own right. The generosity of our customers never fails to surprise us and we look forward to another successful year for the charities participating.”

Rob de Young - Chairman of the Employee Forum Volkswagen UK Ltd said:
“As a high profile employer within Milton Keynes, we have an obligation to lead by example and constantly question ourselves as to what more we can do for the community. This is driven even more by the desire of our staff to help and contribute. We are proud to have supported the Community Foundation for the last 30 years and look forward to continuing to do so for many more years to come.”

We would also like to say a big thank you to Freestone for their wonderful graphics that help our car look even more inviting.

Over £25,000 was raised last year for local charities in MK and this year MK Community Foundation hopes to raise even more!

Ian Revell CEO MK Community Foundation said:
"Each year, with the support of many local charities and groups, we raise thousands of pounds for the community through our car raffle. Your charity or group can still get involved, give us a call on 01908 690276 to be part of this fantastic community fundraising event, and who knows you might even sell the winning ticket!”
