SLM East Anglia Supports Nelson's Journey Charity

Here at SLM East Anglia we are very proud to announce that from December 2017 we will be supporting local charity Nelson’s Journey.

Based in Norfolk, Nelson’s Journey helps to support children and young people up to the age of 18 who have experienced the death of a significant person in their life. As well as providing one to one support, they offer many opportunities and activities, plus the opportunity to meet other children of a similar age who have also experienced bereavement. Their aim is to ensure bereaved children can look forward to a positive future.

Across the whole of SLM East Anglia Group, we will be donating £1 to the charity for any new or used car sold. Everyone at SLM is extremely pleased to be able to give something back to the local community and help raise money for such a worthy cause.

SLM Group Director Jason Barlow commented: “We are very proud to be supporting such a great cause. After visiting the team at Nelson’s Journey, I walked out knowing that we had made a great decision to support this great charity that gives so much to the local community. I am really proud that we will now be giving something back to them and supporting the centre moving forward. All of our centre teams are looking forward to raising as much money as possible for them.”

Nelson’s Journey exclaimed “We are thrilled to have been chosen by SLM Toyota. As a growing charity we are in need of support from the local business community to help us deal with the increase in referrals that we are seeing year-on-year.

“This year we expect to receive around 1000 referrals for children needing our support after the death of a special person in their lives, and support from wonderful businesses like SLM Toyota will help us to meet the growing demand on our service and continue to provide our services free-of-charge. We are really excited about this partnership and can’t wait to work together more closely to bring back smiles to bereaved children in Norfolk.”

We will be providing updates in due course about our fundraising progress, so make sure you check our news section for more updates!
