Four cars donated to local outstanding charities

Chapelhouse Motor Group is thrilled to announce that one lucky person from each area is going to have the opportunity to win a brand-new Suzuki Alto.

The car, which was recently named as the most dependable on the market in 2015 by J.D. Power, will be donated from Chapelhouse’s dealerships in St Helens, Wigan, Southport and Warrington. The charities included are Southport Lifeboat, Willowbrook Hospice, St Roccos Hospice and Wigan Youth Zone.

The independent charities will in turn sell raffle tickets at just £1 each, and one person is guaranteed to win the new vehicle.

Willowbrook Hospice – The Hospice, which is located in Prescot, provides vital care to patients with life-limiting diseases in the St Helens and Knowsley area. Since opening in 1997, Willowbrook has treated over 6000 patients at no charge, and it wouldn’t be able to continue to deliver such an invaluable contribution to people in the local area if it wasn’t for donations and fundraising events, amid modest funding from the NHS.

Southport Lifeboat – Independent to the Royal National Lifeboat Institution, the Offshore Trust is entirely dependent on donations and fundraising events to provide its first-class round-the-clock life-saving service, and has helped in the safe return of over 250 people around the Sefton coastline since its formation in 1988

St Roccos Hospice – The Hospice, which is located less than a mile away from Chapelhouse Suzuki based on Folly Lane, is largely reliant on kind-hearted donations and fundraising events to be able to continue providing such a vital service to Warrington and its residents. Specialising in high-quality care for those unfortunate enough to suffer from terminal or life-limiting conditions, just a third of St. Rocco’s budget is afforded by the NHS.

Wigan Youth Zone – Despite the original costs being donated by local businessmen Bill and Martin Ainscough, Dave Whelan, along with Wigan Athletic players and the Premier League, the youth centre, which opened in 2013, is still reliant on private donations to match the £400,000 running costs each year. The Youth Zone gives local youngsters the opportunity to use such facilities as a sports hall, a music recording studio, outdoor football pitches, a dance studio and a state-of-the-art gym


As one of the larger businesses in each of the areas, Chapelhouse is only happy to be able to give something back to the local community.
