Volvo charity excavator for Nixon Hire

13 May 2013

Nixon Hire have announced their chosen charity for 2013 as Cancer Research UK.

There are over 200 known types of cancer, all of which need a cure. The funding required to support this challenge is substantial and as Cancer Research UK is entirely funded by public donations, we have set a fundraising target for 2013 of £50,000 to help beat cancer.

Starting our corporate fundraising activities at the Plantworx exhibition tomorrow in Coventry, Nixon Hire will be unveiling a very unique Volvo EC55C excavator. The excavator which is painted bright white and carries the Cancer Research UK branding will be placed on the Volvo stand for the duration of the exhibition and staff will be attending to collect donations.

Following Plantworx, the machine will be made available to hire, with ALL of the proceeds going towards the fundraising target. Whilst at Plantworx we are asking visitors to the Volvo stand to tell us how much they are willing to pay to hire the machine and how long they are willing to take the machine for - as all of the proceeds will go to Cancer Research UK and we want to obtain the most income from the machine as possible -  the highest rate for the longest hire will get the machine!

The machine will be managed by Nixon Direct and will available to hire w/c 20th May.

We are looking to expand the charity products we offer for hire and will keep you up to date with how this progresses.
