Wellhouse Leisure is proud to announce that it is supporting its local charity, the Forget Me Not Children’s Hospice in Huddersfield with the loan of one of its award-winning Ford Terrier campervans, and has also pledged to raise over £25,000 for the charity over the next year.
Wellhouse is starting this fund-raising challenge by organising a charity ball on 31 October, plus there is another marathon running challenge in the pipeline for managing director, David Elliott.
The campervan will help provide the children and families supported by the charity in the West Yorkshire area with the freedom to go for much needed fun days out or short holidays to create special memories during difficult times.
“We’ve always raised money for charity each year, and are delighted to choose such a local one this time,” said David Elliott, managing director of Wellhouse Leisure.
“Campervans always make people happy, and the charity thought the idea of helping the families have some quality time together in a campervan would be something different and exciting, so we were more than happy to help,” David continued.
Jason Costello, Head of Community Fundraising at the Forget Me Not Children’s Hospice said: “We are so excited to be Wellhouse Leisure’s chosen charity and are really looking forward to working with them. David is a phenomenal man with energy and drive that could power one of his campervans! His support will make a massive difference to families and children in our community, and for this we can’t thank him enough.
The Wellhouse Terrier, produced in Shepley, near Huddersfield, is the first UK campervan conversion of the new Ford Transit Custom, which means it is economical and very easy to drive, but also a real home from home complete with a kitchen including hob, sink and fridge, a three person rear seat that converts into a double bed, plus another double bed in the pop-up roof.
