Georgia, Auction Assistant at Manheim Plymouth, recently did something out of this world to honor her dads legacy!

“Before my Dad passed away,” explains Georgia, “we talked about the possibility of doing a charity sky-dive. After he died, I knew that I had to focus my thoughts and attention on trying to do something positive to help other people. “I wanted to make him proud and because the staff at the hospital were so amazing – I pushed myself to raise as much money for them as possible. My team, and our wider Cox Automotive family, have been incredible in their support. I’ve been overwhelmed with the donations that everyone has made!”

Georgia raised an amazing £3,206.14 for the Brent, Bracken and Birch ward in Derriford Hospital, Plymouth. The hospital is putting the money towards extending a specialist suite, which provides accommodation for patients who must be in isolation and will be replacing broken TVs with brand new ones for patients to enjoy.
