Boston-area motor group donates new car to local hospice cause

A Boston-area motor group has donated a new car to a 
local hospice cause in support of its fundraising efforts.

Handing over the car with a socially distanced elbow bump ... Megan from Taylors Motor Group and Bridget from the Butterfly Hospice Trust.

Taylors Motor Group recently made the presentation to The Butterfly Hospice Trust, its charity of the year.

The trust runs an inpatient unit in Rowan Way, Boston, though the service is currently suspended due to the coronavirus outbreak.

Megan Taylor, who handles marketing for Taylors, said: “The Butterfly Hospice is a fantastic cause and one close to the hearts of many of our customers and staff.

“To be able to support their fantastic efforts in the local community is great and something the team at Taylors are proud to be able to do.

“We look forward to working with them in the future and hope they enjoy the car.”

Special thanks were given by the business to Hutsons Signmakers and Engravers, of Boston, for donating the graphics for the Peugeot 208.

Bridget MacPherson, chief executive officer of The Butterfly Hospice Trust, said: “For our charity to have the support of local business is always extremely heartening.”

She described the gesture from Taylors as: ‘above and beyond’ what it could have expected at this time.

“We appreciate that many businesses, as with charities, are feeling the might of coronavirus, so our gratitude extends to Taylors most sincerely,” she said. “We are delighted with the design work and look forward to be spotted out about in Boston and across the south of the county.”

She added the charity is looking forward to working with Taylors for the remainder of this year and into 2021 and beyond, and that is working with its clinical partners to resume its hospice service ‘at the very earliest opportunity’.
