It’s not just about the cars, it’s about the community, families, and the people who come to Hull Motor Show, so that’s why we decided from the beginning to donate the proceeds of the event to charities.

We’re really proud in what achieved with this and below is some information on some of the fantastic charities we have supported over the years:

 

Hull 4 Heros and Veterans Village (2018)

Increasingly, veterans return from service to find they do not have the support network and resources to meet their most basic needs.  When their resources are depleted, these veterans end up our streets.  Hull 4 Heroes wants to stop this.

Our aim is to build new houses, purpose made to serve all a veteran’s needs. Placing them amongst established or newly created communities, along with a community centre to service all members of the area including non-veterans.

Whilst we are all working towards achieving our ultimate goals, we are helping as many veterans and their families as possible! This is through both large and smaller scale renovations to existing properties, making them fit for purpose and meeting the veteran and their families’ needs.

To truly realise the charities dreams of providing sustainable housing, training and employment we have conceived the Veterans Village project. This unique project aims to create a safe and productive environment where veterans can live, train and work to create a happy and meaningful life for themselves and their families in civilian society

Abbie’s Fund (2017)

Abbie’s Fund provide memory boxes and keepsakes for parents and families who lose babies through stillbirth or neonatal death at Hull Women and Children’s Hospital and other local hospitals.

We have a chosen to help raise money for this local charity again this year. We helped out a few years ago and they have attended every year since helping support us. We are repaying that faith in us by donating what ever we can raise at this years show.

We hope we can raise as much money as possible to help out this worth while cause.

The charity relies on fund raising events and donations to continue providing the Memory Boxes to help local families and now also part funds the bereavement midwife position at Hull Women and Children’s Hospital.
