  • (1888PressRelease) August 13, 2010 - Independent car dealership, Mark Campbell Motors, is set to host a weekend of complimentary family entertainment as it launches its carbon offsetting initiative and a scheme to send gift parcels to UK troops abroad.

    The two day event, spanning August 21st and 22nd, will welcome members of the public to enjoy a free of charge barbecue, refreshments and entertainment. Visitors will have the opportunity to win a sat-nav, receive free vehicle diagnostics checks and to obtain a 10 Tesco voucher for taking any vehicle for a test drive. If the visitor likes the car and agrees a deal, they can then play "Have a pop at our prices". On popping a balloon, an amount is revealed within which they receive either in cash or as a discount from the value of the car.

    An array of attractions to entertain children will also be offered, including a bouncy castle and a chance to meet local environmental character, EcoMan, the fun, friendly mascot of the organisation enabling Mark Campbell Motors to become a carbon neutral company and helping to carbon offset the mileage of cars sold by the family-run dealership.

    The dealership has a strong history of social responsibility and contributing to the community. In addition to its new carbon offsetting, recent scout fundraising day and a very successful scheme to send gift parcels to troops in Afghanistan, the company is re-launching the latter in the run-up to Christmas. The company invites visitors to bring along boxes of home comforts with an accompanying letter which it will then send to UK troops abroad. Company founder, Mark Campbell, explains: "Regardless of your political beliefs, we strongly feel that our often neglected troops abroad deserve some support. So please, come and enjoy a fun packed weekend, helping us to celebrate our carbon offsetting and bring along a parcel for our boys abroad".

    Referred to light-heartedly internally as the UK's largest car dealership in Breaston, the company has developed a high level of trust amongst its loyal customer base, providing a friendly, transparent service. It is one of the few dealerships to offer a full, no quibble warranty for the life of each used car that it sells. The open weekend, as well as championing two very worthy causes, will also allow visitors to find out for themselves just how Mark Campbell Motors goes that 'extra mile'.

    Additional Information
    Mark Campbell Motors was established in 1995 by Mark Campbell and has been operating as a trusted, independent and family owned car dealership and service centre ever since. Because 40% of CO2 emissions in the UK are caused by the actions of individuals, which includes personal car travel, and through listening to the concerns of its customer base, Mark Campbell Motors has established itself as a carbon neutral company.

    In conjunction with Derbyshire-based carbon offsetting company, EcoMan, the carbon footprint of the dealership was measured and will be offset against tree planting schemes. As well as this, customers buying quality used vehicles will also have the chance to offset a significant proportion of their future mileage. For a small contribution, customers can secure 10,000 miles worth of carbon neutral motoring which Mark Campbell Motors will match with a further 10,000 miles.
