Rolls-Royce Motor Cars has been offering its employees the chance to choose a charity they prefer to support every year for quite some time now, dubbed House Charity. Supporting charities is something to be proud of and the British manufacturer certainly does so. This year, the employees voted for their new House Charity and Home-Start Arun, Worthing & Adur was chosen. This means Home-Start will be supported in a number of initiatives by the Goodwood-based manufacturer.

The goal of Home-Start is to support families through their challenging times and help them to have a happier and more stable home for their young children to develop in. One Rolls-Royce employee nominated the charity for a very special reason. Phil Gregory, Leathershop Associate, has regularly volunteered for Home‑Start and has seen the positive impact the organization has had in the local community. Phil said, “I have supported Home-Start for a number of years. Their valuable work enriches the lives of young children and families in our local area, and as a result, our wider community as a whole. I am proud to be a Home-Start volunteer and look forward to working with them as the new Rolls-Royce House Charity”.

Catherine Hobson, Business Development Manager at Home-Start Arun, Worthing & Adur said, “Home-Start is delighted to be the Rolls-Royce Motor Cars House Charity for 2019. Home-Start supports local families going through challenging times and demand is stronger than ever. We have more families with under fives needing support than we currently have resources for, and demand is increasing. We have an ambition of supporting 170 families with over 400 children this year. Our volunteers make a tangible difference to the lives of parents to ensure the best start in life for their children”.

Andrew Ball, Head of Corporate Relations, Heritage and Philanthropy, Rolls-Royce Motor Cars, said, “Rolls-Royce is proud to be making a long-standing and positive contribution in our local community by supporting local charities. Our employees go to great lengths to support the House Charity every year and we look forward to seeing what creative initiatives they come up with for Home-Start in 2019”.
