GO Vauxhall And Robins & Day “Pass the Pudsey” for Children in Need

Robins & Day, the PSA owned dealer group for Peugeot, DS, Citroen and Vauxhall has launched the “Pass the Pudsey” relay in support of BBC Children in Need. From Monday 5 November until Friday 16 November 2018, Children in Need’s famous Pudsey bear will travel the length and breadth of the country from Robins and Day Maidstone to Glasgow, passing through 44 dealerships on route.

The BBC Children in Need appeal seeks to enhance the lives of thousands of disadvantaged children and teenagers in the UK. The campaign reaches its crescendo through the televised BBC One show on Friday 19 November where an array of businesses, celebrities and individuals share their fundraising stories and achievements and see first hand the benefit this delivers to the various UK beneficiaries.

Whilst travelling through the Robins & Day and GO Vauxhall dealership network, Pudsey bear will be given a warm welcome by staff, and taken on a series of adventures and activities wherever he goes. Starting at the Southeast in Maidstone, Pudsey will travel around Greater London for the first week, before heading west to Newport and Bristol. Continuing on his chauffeur-driven door-to-door journey, Week 2 will see Pudsey welcomed to PSA head office in Coventry, and other Midlands sites before starting his final route North, making his last stops along the way. Pudsey’s concluding adventure will be a private chartered flight between Manchester and Glasgow.

The Robins & Day “Pass the Pudsey” campaign concludes with an assortment of games, quizzes and contests at all Robins & Day and GO Vauxhall dealerships, aimed at raising money towards the £500 fundraising target set.

Speaking about the campaign, James Weston, CEO for Robins & Day commented: “This year is our biggest and most challenging campaign to support the BBC Children in Need fundraiser. With a dealership network that’s nationwide, logistically this presents a challenge for us in the time frame available.

“Our staff have however fully engaged with the campaign as it supports a cause we feel very passionately about as a business. We hope to surpass our fundraising target of £500 and ultimately help improve the lives of the many disadvantaged youngsters here in the UK.
