Power Service Stations, an independent group of nine forecourts located across Sussex, has supported eight local projects and good causes with £4,000 in donations to celebrate or volunteer for the Coronation in May this year.
The donations are made through Nisa’s Making a Difference Locally (MADL) charity in the latest round of Heart of the Community Awards, which enables Nisa retailers to nominate a local community group to receive up to £500 of funding from MADL.
The Heart of the Community Awards saw 147 charities and good causes across the UK benefit from donations of £500 – with eight causes nominated by Power Service Stations receiving a share of £4,000.
Winners include Friends of Bolney CEP School, You Raise Me Up, Pass It On CIC, East Sussex Ukraine Support, Bolney Village Society, Hailsham Cricket Club, Chanctonbury Community Leisure, and The Wholesome Warehouse.
Power Service Stations are operated by Nisa key account retailing group Pricewatch.
“Our partnership with MADL has been incredible. They have provided us the means to donate to wonderful causes within our communities. We’re thrilled that eight of our nominated charities have won the Heart of the Community Awards,” Andre Salvidge, charity ambassador for Pricewatch, said.
“The grant will provide them with much-needed financial support and help them bring people together for the upcoming King’s Coronation. It’s been a difficult time for charities and good causes, so this excellent news gives us the opportunity to celebrate the amazing people who power our communities.
“We are grateful to MADL and are overwhelmed by the impact of the funding. We can’t wait to see photos from the celebrations.”
Claire Partridge, marketing manager for Pricewatch, added: “We’re delighted with the news that eight of our nominated charities have won the Heart of the Community Awards.
“The funding will give a much-needed boost to the causes we work with as they bring their communities together for the King’s Coronation – and what an opportunity for a celebration! We’re so thankful to MADL for giving us an invaluable support structure which allows us to donate to good causes at the heart of our communities.”
Kate Carroll, Nisa’s head of charity, said: “We received a great quantity of nominations for this round of our Heart of The Community awards with people wanting to celebrate this moment of national importance in true Royal style for the Coronation.
“We are delighted that Nisa retailers once again got on board with the funding giveaway for their communities which resulted in £73,500 across 147 causes being donated across the UK.”
