The Partnership with Cynthia Spencer Hospice

 

A Journey of Compassion and Support

"This event was about raising money for a fantastic charity but also about getting people together after all the restrictions of the pandemic and having some face-to-face interaction. The level of play was terrific; many teams had been training for months, so the standard was excellent.

Nina Gandy, Corporate Partnerships Fundraiser at Cynthia Spencer Hospice, was on hand during the day to talk to the businesses participating, which Silverstone Leasing hopes will lead to more fundraising opportunities for the hospice with other companies.

She said: "The tournament proved a great success once again. It was brilliant to see a range of teams and new teams who played in the game back in February last year. The day had a great atmosphere, and everyone seemed excited to return to a proper event again.

"Everyone who played, attended and donated raffle prizes will make a huge difference to our patients and their families. Thank you to Ryan, Scott, and the entire team for making this a success again."

Notable Fundraising Initiatives

Over the years, Silverstone Leasing has spearheaded numerous initiatives to raise funds for CSH, rallying the community and leveraging social media platforms to maximise their impact. Among these efforts, the #SingforCynthia social media campaign captured hearts and encouraged widespread participation. Additionally, the company organised cycle events and annual football tournaments, bringing together individuals and businesses for a cause close to many hearts.

The Silverstone Soccer Event: A Highlight of Commitment

The Silverstone Soccer event, hosted at Daventry Town Football Club, is a prime example of the company's efforts to support CSH. Attracting a significant turnout from local businesses, the event not only served as a fundraiser, raising over £2,000, but also as a platform for post-pandemic community re-engagement. Scott Norville, the Managing Director of Silverstone Leasing, reflected on the event's success with pride, emphasising the team's deep connection with Cynthia Spencer Hospice, a connection bolstered by personal experiences with the hospice's services.

The Impact: Beyond Fundraising

The Corporate Partnerships Fundraiser at Cynthia Spencer Hospice, Nina Gandy lauded the tournament for enhancing community spirit and laying the groundwork for future collaborations with other companies. The event underscored the potential of collective efforts in making a tangible difference, fostering a sense of unity and shared purpose.

In 2022, Silverstone Leasing set a new record by raising £3,231 for the hospice, a testament to their growing commitment and the increasing support from the community. Buoyed by this success, the company is more determined than ever to surpass its previous achievements, continuing its support for Cynthia Spencer Hospice with renewed vigour and enthusiasm.

Customer Reviews

   
Darren Downes

"An all round professional company. I knew the vehicle I wanted to lease. I contacted Embrace in August and was informed by Tom they had that particular vehicle on order. However the delivery was Dec / Jan. Embrace offered me alternative vehicles with a quicker lead time. Embrace explained how I could extend my current lease on a monthly basis, until my vehicle was ready for delivery. The application form was easy to understand and complete. Embrace kept me up to date on delivery via regular emails. It was very easy to contact Embrace either by phone or email. Any questions I had were explained in a quick professional manner. My lease vehicle was delivered as stated and on a low loader. No excessive mileage or road dirt. I would highly recommend Embrace as your next leasing company."

"Tom Glennon, Account Manager, at Silverstone has helped me lease 2 cars over the last 3 years and on both occasions has been very professional and diligent in his approach in finding me my desired cars at a good lease price. He liaised with customer care to arrange collection of my original lease car on the same day my new car was delivered. My only negative is with LeasePlan as they still have the original car ‘live’ and I am worried they might take another monthly direct debit erroneously. Trying to speak to them on the phone is a non starter. Was on hold for 35 minutes and gave up !"

"Dealt with Tom Glennon from start to finish, could not speak more highly of him! Initially it looked like it would be difficult to get the spec I was looking for, but Tom worked tirelessly to find it, he was super quick and responsive to get the car secured for me when one became available! Great value and great service. 10/10 - request for him when you call!!"

"As a first time leaser, Tom was really helpful and knowledgeable, guiding me through the leasing process and was always on hand to answer any questions I had. After placing my order the customer care team were really flexible with the delivery date of my car and even helped me get hold of it a few days early after selling my existing car sooner than anticipated. Would absolutely recommend using Embrace to lease your next car."

"Great experience from start to finish. Tom Glennon from sales was truly great, he made the selection process a dream and Michelle Williamson within the customer care team could not have been more helpful in making my delivery needs become reality. A massive thank you to you both from me."
