Rolls Rally aims to raise awareness and funds for children with life-limiting conditions

Categories: Community Engagement.

Rolls-Royce has donated the purple, Together for Short Lives branded, Rolls-Royce Ghost Series II to the charity for a year. 

The rally was launched at Goodwood Motor Circuit last month, with representatives from Together for Short Lives and local children’s hospice Chestnut Tree House in attendance.

Since the launch, the car has visited Haven House Children’s Hospice in Essex and Round Table Children’s Wish in Bournemouth.

Next stops on the tour are ellenor in Kent and Rainbows Hospice for Children and Young People in Loughborough. It is hoped that the car will be able to visit more than 20 children’s palliative care and hospice services from all over the UK in the coming months.

The purple Rolls-Royce Ghost Series II, is being used for a number of different purposes as part of a year-long partnership with Rolls-Royce, with children’s hospices auctioning off chauffeur-driven packages and holding raffles that offer people the chance to win a weekend with the car.

Children with life-limiting illnesses and their families have also been offered Rolls-Royce experience days.

Stephen Ballantyne, director of fundraising at Together for Short Lives, said: “Together for Short Lives has been given an amazing opportunity by Rolls-Royce. We’re looking forward to working closely with our members over the coming months to raise awareness of the fantastic children’s palliative care and hospice services across the UK, and importantly to raise money to help families get the care and support they need.”
