A Mansfield car retailer has chosen John Eastwood Hospice as its charity of the year.

Pentagon will endeavour to raise as much money as possible through endeavours such as encouraging donations from customers and a family fun day.

Proceeds will go towards supporting John Eastwood Hospice’s delivery of specialist palliative care to those in the hospice and in the local community. It will also aid the improvement of existing facilities to ensure that those using the hospice’s services are as comfortable as possible.

Hollie Fensome, franchise support manager at Pentagon, said: “We are delighted to have partnered with John Eastwood Hospice. The work the hospice does is held in the highest regard amongst the team here and also the wider community, so we’re happy to be able to lend our support.”

Yvonne Shucksmith, fundraising and events manager at John Eastwood Hospice, comments: “We are over the moon to be working with Pentagon and to be chosen as their charity partner for 2017/18. The work we do relies heavily on donations and contributions from the community, so this partnership will make a huge difference. We’re looking forward to working with the team and we’d like to thank them in advance for their support.”
