Local Kia dealership, Marsh Kia, is gifting a brand-new Kia Stonic to Living Options Devon, to help raise vital funds for the projects, services and support they provide to people with disabilities and Deaf people (BSL users). To get the fundraising started, Marsh Kia has also offered a cheque for £250.

Living Options Devon has been chosen as the Princesshay Charity of the Year and the Kia Stonic will be on display at Princesshay shopping centre every Thursday, Friday and Saturday between 23 May and 20 December. People will be able to buy tickets to enter the raffle from Princesshay shopping centre, with the winner being announced on 20 December 2019.

Adam Liddicoat, General Sales Manager at Marsh Kia Exeter, said: “We’re pleased to be able to support such a great local charity that provides much needed care and support for disabled people. We hope that the donation of a brand-new Kia Stonic will raise a generous amount for the charity to enable them to continue providing much needed care.”

Living Options Devon aims for a fully formed, accessible and inclusive society, in which every individual has the choice and opportunity to achieve their full potential and take part as an equal and valued citizen. 50% of staff and 80% of the volunteers at Living Options have disabilities and/or are Deaf (BSL users), giving the charity first-hand understanding of the daily issues they face. Living Options has a strong commitment to partnership working, supporting other charities to provide better services for people with disabilities and Deaf people. 

Diana Crump, CEO at Living Options added: “We’re very grateful to Marsh Kia for generously donating a brand-new Kia Stonic to our raffle, and its donation of £250. The money raised will be going towards providing education, training and services to enable those we support to live the lives they choose.”
