YOUR SUPPORT GOES A LONG WAY! THANK YOU

2016’s 20/Twenty Challenge Event in aid of Cerebral Palsy Alliance is over and another milestone has been achieved!  A BIG THANK YOU TO EVERYONE that assisted in helping us raise much needed funds for this well deserved local charity, close to our hearts.

Col Crawford Lifestyle Cars have been affiliated with Cerebral Palsy Alliance formally The Spastic Centre since 1983 and throughout this time we have raised close to $3 million. We hosted the annual Col Crawford Charity Golf Day for 30 years. In 2013 we decided that this would be the last charity golf event, and now we continue to support this great organisation with exciting fundraising events in the future, the annual 20/Twenty Challenge Event being one of them.

We are excited to announce that the event raised over $640,000 which will help to purchase over 200 pieces of life-changing mobility and communication equipment! This result would not be possible without the energy the 44 teams put into fundraising. The generosity and support we received from our customers, friends and companies we do business with was greatly appreciated and overwhelming.

With your backing, Col Crawford’s (Team Crawford) was the 2nd highest team in the fundraising stakes and Steve Crawford was personally awarded the ‘Alex Graham Fundraising Award’ for the highest, single fundraiser. We only share this with you to again express our sincere appreciation for your support.

As for the event, the Crawford family consisting of Steve and his 3 sons, Harrison, Jake and Will finished a credible 4th in the Grand Prix Division with our other Col Crawford Team coming 1st (again) in the Classic Division.

Both these awards now hang proudly in our showroom (see below).  Sit back and watch the video of the event: 2016 Event Video

Thank you again for your tremendous support!
