Following our 2 successful giveaways, we have this year decided to change Charites. After much deliberation, we decided to choose a charity with strong links to the North East - this led us to Cash For Kids
Cash for Kids lends a helping hand to disabled and disadvantaged children aged 0 to 18 years across 21 areas in the UK by means of our grant giving process. All the money raised on behalf of Cash for Kids stays in the area it was raised in providing a helping hand when and where it is needed most.
At Redgate Lodge not only do we believe in offering amazing value for money when supplying our customers with new cars, carrying out repair work on your current car, or even just a simple valet.
We believe by using not only our website and strong customer retention rate, but also our massive social media following to allow us to do something amazing, bring awareness to and also raise money for charity.
2010 Citroen C1 Giveaway
In January 2015 we decided to give a car away, a 2010 Citroen C1, which we did live on our Facebook page when we reached 15,000 likes.
After the Giveaway we felt like maybe we missed something? Maybe we could have used our exposure to benefit somebody else? We already had planned to give another car away but how could we make it bigger or better.
The decision was then made, everyone who wants to enter the draw donates £5 to charity, a charity we let our Facebook fans decide, which unanimously became Cancer Research UK. So we set another target, the simple thing was to add another 15,000 LIKES on so therefore becoming 30,000, as soon as we hit that number we give away another car. What was that car, well it was a BMW Z4 convertible!
BMW Z4 Convertible Giveaway
Again the target was reached, 30,000 likes was in the bag, but more importantly you, our customers and followers along with some added support from other local garages and businesses managed to raise:
1985 Golf GTI Convertible Giveaway
Any normal Garage/Business would call it a day at that point. But not Redgate Lodge, we have just announced our 3rd official car giveaway, a 1985 classic Golf GTI convertible. Again we will be carrying on with cancer research only this time we hope to raise £15,000 and naturally we have set the likes target at 45,000.
We donated £250 in 2017 and again in 2018 in aid of this superb charity.
