The team at Bentley Leicester have been demonstrating their philanthropic side by giving significant support to some very worthy charities.
Not only has the showroom hosted a gala dinner for the Prince’s Trust which raised more than £75,000, New Car Sales Manager Peter Yates is in training to tackle this year’s London Marathon, in aid of the Multiple Sclerosis Society.
Peter said: “I’m looking to raise £5000 for the charity in recognition of the support my wife Sophie has received since being diagnosed with the disease.
“Sophie is only 30 and was diagnosed last March.
“I started training for the Marathon in November, running four nights a week, and although I’ve had a couple of setbacks, I’m hoping to complete the course in four and a half hours.”

Bentley Leicester is continuing to help disadvantaged young people through its sponsorship of The Prince’s Trust.
Last year the dealership hosted the Trust’s annual fundraising dinner at its showroom on Watermead Business Park, Syston. More than 200 people attended the event, which raised over £75,000.
The guests heard from a young person who has personally been supported by the Trust, turning around his life after a spell in prison and building up his own business.
Bentley Leicester will this year support the Trust’s annual Summer Ball, Car Rally and other events.
