CLIC Sargent celebrates one year partnership with Garage Group

Independent forecourt retailer Park Garage Group has beening supporting CLIC Sargent since April 2012 through a plastic bag initiative and has raised a fantastic £3,933.

The UK wide company, which has over 50 ‘Park and Shop’ outlets established across the UK, has raised money with the introduction of its single back charge scheme.

The initiative was rolled out across all ‘Park and Shop’ outlets on 1 March 2012 and saw the company charging five pence for every plastic bag used by customers.

The Park Garage Group has lost a number of sites over the past year, which has therefore had an impact on their fundraising total. However, we are happy to announce that at the end of the first year of our partnership, The Park Garage Group has raised a fantastic £3,933 for CLIC Sargent!

Fundraising Manager for CLIC Sargent, Elizabeth Charing said: “Thank you to the Park Garage Group for supporting CLIC Sargent’s work with children and young people with cancer and also for encouraging their customers to be environmentally aware. They should be highly applauded for what they achieved so far and I look forward to the next year of our partnership.”

Commenting on the partnership at the end of the first year, Operations Director at Park Garage Group, Miles Harvey said: “I agree a fantastic result for year one. Our team of Operators and Staff and customers have really got behind this scheme and at the same time creating awareness of the important work that CLIC Sargent does. “
