Shooting Star Chase Appeal to be sponsored by our Bishops dealerships

Bishops Car Dealerships are proud to be working with Surrey Advertiser Group and the Shooting Stars Children's Hospice in Guildford once again this Christmas. People are being asked to buy one or two extra gifts this year to help make sure the youngsters and their families have a Christmas to remember.

Last years successful campaign saw the generous people of Guildford and the surrounding areas donate hundreds of presents to the hospice. The presents were placed under the Christmas tree in the Bishops showrooms in Guildford and Aldershot, then they were taken to the hospital closer to Christmas.

Daryl Longhurst, from the present appeal partner Bishops Fiat Alfa and Jeep, said of last years campaign, "We have been so surprised by the amount of presents donated. It is really wonderful to be able to support a local charity at this time of year and I was bowled over and humbled when we delivered everything. We are hoping that this year will be bigger and better and that the local community of readers will support the Hospice and the children and the their families once again to make it a memorable Christmas".

Sue Taylor the Dealer Principle for Bishops Nissan said, "We as a company wanted to get involved again to try to do what we can to help out at what can be such a wonderful time of the year, but also a very difficult one. I would ask people in the area to do what they can to help out with this appeal and give these youngsters lasting memories with their families".

Bishops Aldershot, with the showroom in the heart of the Aldershot community, are delighted to be a drop off point for the Chase Appeal. Adrian Judd, Business Manager of Bishops Aldershot said, "It's fantastic to be able to support the local community at this special time of the year, and we are proud to be associated once again with this fantastic appeal. Having a drop off point in Aldershot makes it even easier for local people to donate presents to the appeal."

Bishops Nissan, Fiat, Jeep, Alfa Romeo and Abarth have vehicles to suit all customers needs, from a small run around to a large 4x4, they have a vehicle to suit all driving ages and budgets. Look out for the sign written vehicles for the chase appeal - If you are unable to deliver your gift to the showroom then please give them a call and the staff at Bishops will gladly collect your gift to ensure it gets to the Hospice safely.
