    Neon 5 Shines A Light For Weston Hospicecare

Saturday 25th Oct saw Howards Motor Group attend and provide the main sponsorship for “Neon 5”, joining Weston Hospicecare in the invasion of Weston Woods to light up the sky all in the name of a good cause.

Hoping to raise £30 000, over 500 people descended to explore a 5K route through the forest in their brightest neon clothes, with everyone helping to shine a light on the fantastic service Weston Hospicecare provides to the local community. Separating the wood into different themed zones, including Space Odyssey, Retro Revival and Electric Avenue, party music, lasers, smoke machines and plenty of props provided lots of interaction along the way, with local performers captivating with glow in the dark circus skills. Everyone had a fantastic time, with a full photo library available on their Facebook page.

 

Howards Walks For Weston Hospicecare

 

Neon 5 brought people together for a variety of reasons, to remember loved ones, have a great time and perhaps most importantly to raise awareness and funds for a hospice that delivers such vital support to 1 in 100 Somerset residents. Founded in 1989, Weston Hospicecare provides physical, psychological, emotional and spiritual care for local people with life limiting diseases, including cancer, heart and lung failure and motor neurone disease. Weston Hospicecare consists of a day hospice, a ten bed In-Patient Unit, Hospice Community Nurse Specialists, a home service, chaplaincy and bereavement care that all work in harmony to ensure both patients and their families are fully cared for and reassured throughout their journey. Costing over £3 million to fund each year, under 20% of this is provided by the NHS, placing even more emphasis on fundraising events, business partnerships and Hospice shops that all help to keep this valuable support network in place for the local community.

If you are interested in getting involved with any fundraising activities for Weston Hospicecare, their event calendar offers a rundown of what they have planned in the near future, including an All 60s Night this coming weekend at Weston-super-Mare Football Club.

  • Howard Garages (Weston) Ltd is an Appointed Representative of Automotive Compliance Ltd, who is authorised and regulated by the Financial Conduct Authority (FCA No 497010). Automotive Compliance Ltd’s permissions as a Principal Firm allows Howard Garages (Weston) Ltd to act as a credit broker, not as a lender, for the introduction to a limited number of lenders and to act as an agent on behalf of the insurer for insurance distribution activities only. Company Number: 1108986

    We can introduce you to a selected panel of lenders, which includes manufacturer lenders linked directly to the franchises that we represent. An introduction to a lender does not amount to independent financial advice and we act as their agent for this introduction. Our approach is to introduce you first to the manufacturer lender linked directly to the particular franchise you are purchasing your vehicle from, who are usually able to offer the best available package for you, taking into account both interest rates and other contributions. If they are unable to make you an offer of finance, we then seek to introduce you to whichever of the other lenders on our panel is able to make the next best offer of finance for you. Our aim is to secure the best deal you are eligible for from our panel of lenders. Lenders may pay a fixed commission to us for introducing you to them, calculated by reference to the vehicle model or amount you borrow. Different lenders may pay different commissions for such introductions, and manufacturer lenders linked directly to the franchises that we represent may also provide preferential rates to us for the funding of our vehicle stock and also provide financial support for our training and marketing. But any such amounts they and other lenders pay us will not affect the amounts you pay under your finance agreement, all of which are set by the lender concerned. If you ask us what the amount of commission is, we will tell you in good time before the Finance agreement is executed. All finance applications are subject to status, terms and conditions apply, UK residents only, 18’s or over. Guarantees may be required.
