Ride High Goes Interactive With The Help Of Steven Eagell Toyota Bedford.

17 July 2012

Children, teachers and volunteers at Ride High in Milton Keynes have a reason to celebrate this weekend after Steven Eagell Toyota (Bedford) presented them with a cheque for £2,700 from Toyota (GB)’s ‘Fund for a Better Tomorrow’.

The fund has been set up by Toyota (GB) PLC to support charity and community initiatives in local communities served by Toyota and Lexus Centres around the UK.

Steven Eagell Toyota (Bedford) is one of the first Toyota Centres in the country to get engaged and secure funding for its local community partner Ride High.

The £2,700 will go towards supporting Ride High’s work with local disadvantaged children in particular the purchase of an interactive whiteboard which will enable children to work together much more creatively.

Presenting the cheque, Steven Eagell, Managing Director, said, “We’d like to congratulate everybody at Ride High for their successful application. We are proud to be involved and be able to support their excellent work. As a local company, we are committed to supporting the local community where possible.”

Thomas Rosselle, CSR & Environmental Affairs Manager at Toyota (GB) PLC added:

“The Ride High Goes Interactive project shows what can be achieved when local businesses such as Steven Eagell Toyota take an active part in their community. We have established the ‘Toyota (GB) Fund for a Better Tomorrow’ precisely to encourage such activities at local level and we are delighted with the outcome.”

Rachel Medill, Chief Executive of Ride High said: “At Ride High we develop children’s skills through a range of creative and team working projects. The whiteboard will be a huge step forward for us enabling the children to watch videos of themselves riding, make their own presentations and work on group projects in a much more creative way. Toyota’s programme is outstanding in that it encourages projects which involve a range of local supporters – this project will also be supported by funding from AV Network, a Milton Keynes audio visual company and by fundraising by the Ride High children themselves. This team effort led by Steven Eagell Toyota will benefit around 500 disadvantaged children over the next few years”
