Select first began supporting both hospices in 2015 with the donation of a vehicle to aid transport of patients and help support staff in day-to-day activities.
Most recently in early 2019, Select donated three brand new Skoda Octavia's for use by the hospice over the next few years with the handover completed at the Select head office in Reading.
Sue Ryder supports people through the most difficult times of their lives. Whether that’s a terminal illness or the loss of a loved one – they’re there when it matters. For over 65 years their doctors, nurses and carers have given people the compassion and expert care they need to help them live the best life they possibly can. For some, this may mean specialist care in one of Sue Ryder's specialist centres, whilst others might need support in their own home.
During the last 5 years, Select Car Leasing has held fundraising events such as quizzes and has recently provided both Sue Ryder teams in Berkshire and South Oxfordshire with cars for their healthcare and fundraising teams.
Laura Kell, Head of Hospice Fundraising at Sue Ryder Duchess of Kent Hospice said of the partnership: "Select are a huge help to us, they enable our nurses to reach patients in their own homes and reduce the costs to the charity. We are incredibly grateful for their continued support."
Mark Tongue, Director of Select Car Leasing said: "We are delighted to continue supporting both Sue Ryder hospices. We began this partnership due to particularly strong ties to the incredible work Sue Ryder continue to do and we are proud this has resulted in an association that we intend to maintain long into the future"
