Shrewsbury Town in the Community recieve new cars as part of Budgen Motors PartnershipShrewsbury Town in The Community are pleased to announce their continued partnership with Budgen Motors.
As one of Shropshire’s biggest Motor Dealerships, Budgen have been supporting Shrewsbury Town in The Community projects for around a year, and have supplied us with a free vehicle to help staff continue their work around Shropshire.
Head of Community Jamie Edwards said: “The Main thing for us, obviously it helps us with the exposure, having sign written cars and vans working across the county everyday is great.
“But also the generous donation of the free vehicle is vital for us.
“The money we save on that can be invested into the projects that we currently run that are making a difference across Shropshire.
“I think it goes back to one of our big aims this year, communications, and making sure people know what we do.
“Like I said, having sign written cars across the county is something that will just attract people to our name.
“Also, its going to help our staff massively, the amount of training courses that they go to and the equipment they have to move around is substantial at times.
“They’re going to be invaluable, really.
“We couldn’t be happier with how they look and the partnership, and hopefully it will continue for a long time.”
Budgen General Sales Manager Sam Owen added: “We are exceptionally pleased, we have been looking at something like this for quite a long while. It’s not just publicity, we feel like we are actually helping in the community.
“We’re not just sponsoring things. Obviously we are getting some exposure, our cars and vans seen, but its nice to be able to support a project as well.
“Budgen opened in 1979 so we’ve been in Shropshire a long, long while. So people know us, not just for car sales but actually for supporting the community.
“We do a lot with tennis clubs locally so we like to help projects really, help projects and help children.
“Hopefully we’re assisting the guys and helping them get out there and take the projects out, and obviously the cars and vans are based here (Greenhous Meadow) but its nice to get them out on the road, to get seen and perhaps help children that wouldn’t otherwise.
“We see a lot on social media, and some of the photos you see are absolutely fantastic, people doing things that they wouldn’t normally be doing.
“I think its quite eye opening and talking to Jamie (Head of Community) earlier, you see the projects and how far you are reaching people, and the things you are doing, its really good.
“It’s important for other people to see that and hopefully we’re assisting in that.
“The projects are getting bigger and bigger each year, so we’d like to see a closer working relationship together.”
