The UK’s largest Kia car dealership has chosen me&dee as one of its charities of the year.

NK Motors based on Pride Park in Derby has chosen the charity to partner with and will be holding a range of fundraising activities throughout the year including a golf day and being part of me&dee’s regular “Not Another Networking Group” events.

me&dee Charity was founded by Maria Hanson MBE in 2006. It supports families and children facing uncertain and life-limiting circumstances, providing special holidays to create memories and make the most of the precious time they have left together.

As part of the partnership, there will be collection boxes, banners and marketing materials in the dealership on Pride Park as well as at other events at NK Motors attends.

Maria commented: “We’re thrilled to be associated with such an established name within Derby as NK Motors. We’re really looking forward to working with the team as part of being one of their two chosen Charities of the Year to support. It is important to us to have a ‘give and take’ relationship with the companies who support us - it’s not all about money. We recognise that a businesses’ charity partnership has to work for everyone. There are so many valuable causes for people to choose from, so for NK Motors to pick me&dee shows that they believe in what we do, which is powerful and slightly overwhelming. We’re looking forward to working together on this to explore mutual promotion and, of course, supporting as many families as possible.”

Sanj Kumar, Dealer Principal of NK Motors, said “We are really proud to be supporting me&dee, Maria and Mark do great things to help families during what can only be thought as one of the worst times of their lives. To give a little back and support them was a no-brainer for us. In a short amount of time we’ve already raised a significant amount of money in their collection boxes and the whole NK Motors family has taken me&dee into their hearts”.

NK Motors join an array of leading Derby names and businesses who are supporting the charity, and this comes following the announcement that me&dee has been chosen by Derby County Football Club as one of its official charity partners.

me&dee are looking to add to their support network by inviting other businesses to become a Corporate Sponsor. With packages from just £20 a month you can help with the ongoing running costs of the charities new lodge in Sherwood Forest by joining the Business Club and help them deliver the memory holidays to the families they support.
