ARI’s Masterserve Foundation reveals first group of charity recipients
The ARI Masterserve Network comprises more than 500 independent outlets that are accredited and continuously monitored by the business. As announced last November, the network has now set up the Masterserve Foundation – billed as the first initiative of its kind to be created by a garage network in the UK – which raises charitable donations from members of the Masterserve Network and ARI and distributed these donations to national and regional charities related to Social Aid and Development, and Healthcare.
Since the launch of the Masterserve Foundation in November 2015, ARI and the Masterserve Garage Network have raised £16,024 and are projected to raise an estimated £120,000 for charitable causes in 2016.
After careful deliberation it was decided that the first set of awards would be made to Willow Wood Hospice, White Lodge Centre, Multiple Sclerosis Society, The County Air Ambulance, and The Little Laura Charity.
Tim Guidotti from Ferdotti Motors said: “We’re proud to support the nominated charities and are committed to raising as much money as possible for causes close to the hearts of Masterserve Network members.”
Peter Janes, Masterserve network development manager, said “We are happy to be a part of the Masterserve foundation and will continue to support the nominated charities.”
The Masterserve Foundation will also be supporting the British Heart Foundation as their national charity who will receive an annual award that accrues each quarter, which will be presented in October 2016.
