Wessex Heartbeat Supporter WINS SEAT Ibiza Donated by Snows SEAT

Snows Motor Group is a proud supporter of Wessex Heartbeat, a charity founded in 1992 which has since raised over £13million to help fund the Wessex Cardiac Centre at local Southampton General Hospital. The charity funds major projects such as the Heartbeat House, Ocean Ward, and Education Centre, on which more information can be found here.

Recently, Snows donated a brand new SEAT Ibiza to a charity raffle organised by Wessex Heartbeat, which raised almost £10,000. These funds will go towards the Wessex Heartbeat ‘appeal to support the modernisation and expansion of the Cardiac Unit’s Heart Failure Service’ (John Munro, Chief Executive at Wessex Heartbeat). On Sunday 7th February, at Dancing with Choirs, a show organised to raise funds for the charity, the winning raffle ticket was drawn. Long-time supporter of Wessex Heartbeat and mum of two, Jo Evans, was the lucky winner of the sporty SEAT Ibiza SC!

Jo’s brother, Stuart, has had a heart condition since birth, which means that Southampton General Hospital’s Cardiac Unit has been an integral part of their lives.

Jo claims the family had ‘wonderful care and support on the cardiac ward at the General’ and says ‘because we know first-hand all the amazing work that Wessex Heartbeat does for not just the patients but their families too, we love to support them by fundraising for them and attending their events’.

Snows Group shares this desire to support the charity, and is pleased that Jo and her young family will now benefit from a brand new SEAT Ibiza. Previously, Jo was using a company lease vehicle from her employers Saxon Weald Homes Ltd, and now she’s thrilled to own a car of her own. She says that it ‘will be just great to have one that my husband John, our children, and I can buzz about in’.

The SEAT Ibiza SC is packed full of technology to ensure a comfortable and entertaining drive. Jo says ‘it’s absolutely gorgeous. The kids have pretended to drive it too and really love the bright red colour. We’re over the moon’. We at Snows are sure that the family will enjoy every mile!
