On 17 April 2010 the Sytner Oldbury Dealership held their first charity event of 2010 for their chosen charity of the year, Macmillan Cancer Support. Sytner Oldbury threw a party to celebrate its first birthday in its new Mini showroom to raise money for an extremely important cause.
The weekend was a great success and saw staff and customers taking part in a charity raffle to win prizes, including a weekend in the new Mini One Convertible and a Mini Cooper Driving Experience.
Families were entertained by a resident DJ and a pool competition on the top floor of the showroom. A bouncy castle and face painter were on hand to keep the children entertained outside. Customers also enjoyed refreshments and a slice of Mini’s 1st Birthday Cake.
A charity car wash also took place on the day with staff washing customer’s cars while they enjoyed the facilities on offer at Sytner Oldbury's state of the art showroom.
Said Carl Harris, Brand Manager of Sytner Mini Oldbury:
'We were delighted to be supporting Macmillan Cancer Support for the second year running across all of the Sytner Oldbury Dealership. This year we have set ourselves a target of raising £10,000 for Macmillan and our 1st Birthday Party of the Mini Showroom today is the start of our fundraising activities for the year.
'The day was a great way of thanking our existing customers for their support over the last year while hopefully attracting new ones to the dealership to enjoy the Mini experience. It was a great way to bring customers and staff together for a fun day to raise as much money as possible for our chosen charity and make a real difference in the local community.'
