Jennings Harley-Davidson raises vital funds for GNAAS

Jennings Harley-Davidson® has been busy raising vital funds for the Great North Air Ambulance (GNAAS). As part of the Jennings Motor Group the team in Gateshead used the 2018 range launch as the idea ideal opportunity to boost fund raising.

Throughout the event over £300 was collected thanks to donations from the Harley-Davidson® team and customers. GNAAS Chief Executive, Graham Pickering MBE said “Thanks to everyone at Jennings and all their customers for getting behind our cause with such dedication.  We rely on this kind of generosity to survive.”

Speaking about the fund raising in the group Nas Khan OBE, managing director of Jennings Motor Group, commented; “There’s been quite a variety of fundraising activities taking place throughout the year, with everything from a sponsored weight loss competition, staff taking part in the Great North Run and bake-offs to auctions, raffles and tombolas”.

Fund raising continues throughout the group with annual car raffle still to be drawn. The prize of a Kia Sportage 1.6 GDi Level 2 model will be presented to a lucky winner once the raffle closes on 7 November 2017. Nas added “The car raffle will soon be coming to a close, so we’re urging members of the public who want to contribute to charity and be in with a chance of winning a brand new Kia Sportage, to purchase a ticket as soon as possible. It’s for a fantastic cause and you could be driving away in a brand new motor in time for Christmas”.  2017 saw Jennings Motor Group donate a Kia Rio as the annual prize, with over £125,000 raised to help keep the air ambulance in action.
