Light Up Someone's Christmas

Charles Hurst Bentley has partnered with The Lord’s Taverners for their 2016 Christmas Campaign “Light Up Someone’s Christmas”, a major charitable initiative in support of Cedar Lodge School in North Belfast.

Educating children and young people with learning disabilities, Cedar Lodge is The Lord’s Taverners’ nominated beneficiary school for 2016 and has benefitted from a new minibus and sensory room for pupils already this year.

Throughout December, Charles Hurst Bentley would like to invite you to the showroom to donate a gift and place it in the enormous boot of our Bentayga on display in the showroom.

John Brankin, Head of Business at Charles Hurst Bentley said:

“We are delighted to continue our support of the fantastic work and fundraising efforts of The Lord’s Taverners through the various joint events and initiatives during 2016.

“As well as a boot-full of fantastic gifts for the pupils and their families to enjoy this Christmas, we will also be raising vital funds at this week’s Lord’s Taverners Christmas lunch to allow the life-changing work of Cedar Lodge to continue.

“We are inviting anyone who can donate gifts or funds to join us on December 19th when we will be presenting guests from the school with these gifts at a special event at the showroom.”

The ‘Light Up Someone’s Christmas’ campaign will culminate in a festive event with hospitality at the Charles Hurst Bentley showroom on Belfast’s Boucher Road on Monday, 19th December. Representatives of both Charles Hurst and the Lord’s Taverners will welcome teachers, staff, pupils and families of Cedar Lodge before unveiling the packed Bentayga boot and presenting all monies raised. We would like to take this opportunity to invite you to the showroom for a glass of mulled wine and a mince pie to witness the handover of gifts.

Lois Little, principal of Cedar Lodge School, said:

“Words cannot express how important the support of organisations such as the Lord’s Taverners and companies like Charles Hurst is when it comes to maintaining, developing and supporting the work we do at the school.

“On behalf of the teaching body, the pupils and the wider community for which we are a vital resource, the fundraising and gift collection will provide some much needed light at this time of year for so many.”

We hope that you can join us in helping Light Up Christmas for the pupils of Cedar Lodge.
