Startin Renault Worcester’s commercial department will be loaning two Renault Vans to St. Richard’s Hospice in conjunction with Nation Wide Building Society Worcester to assist in the annual Christmas Tree Collection Fundraiser.
David Tyler of Startin Renault said “It’s an absolute delight to be able to assist Jayne Sargeant and the wider fundraising team of St. Richard’s Hospice Worcester with a couple of our commercial vans. As a local family run business Startin group is more than aware of the good work the hospice does and are always more than happy to help when we can, I’ll certainly be donating our Startin Group car Showroom Trees to the cause.”

The campaign is now in its fourth year.

Jayne Sargeant, Fundraiser at St Richard’s Hospice said : “We are delighted and grateful to David from Startin Commercials for his vans.
