Donate to Tree of Hope today so that we can continue to help children

Blue14 founder Jim Lewcock from Tunbridge Wells has donated the £15,000 proceeds of the sale of his Audi Q2 to local charity Tree of Hope

Jim won a car in 2000 as IPC Media’s salesperson of the year, sold the car and used the proceeds to set up his first business. 20 years on, he decided to pay this forward by donating the funds from the sale of his latest car to Tree of Hope.

 

Jim first came into contact with the charity when his 12-year-old son Ted decided he would like to take on a sponsored walk to raise funds for a local charity. The walk has been postponed due to covid, but Ted hopes to raise £10,000.

 

Jim said: “It was a real buzz winning a car all those years ago, it set me on the road to success and now it’s an equal buzz paying it forwards to a truly wonderful Kent charity in Tree Of Hope.”

 

Tree of Hope CEO Gill Gibb said: ‘We’re delighted with Jim’s generous donation and Ted’s interest in raising money for our charity too. These funds will help us to help support many families with the healthcare needs of their children.’

 

Blue14 is a digital marketing and investment company based in Brighton and London.

 

Tree of Hope helps families to fundraise for children’s operations, therapies and equipment that are unobtainable via the NHS and provides access to a registered charity providing more effective and efficient ways of fundraising, unlike traditional crowdfunding.
