Local charity Louie's S.M.I.L.E.S received a very generous donation recently from an amazing Family from WARMINSTER. The Family's wish was to donate their late mothers car to a worthy cause that will help others. At the same time founder of Louie's S.M.I.L.E.S Joanne Booth recently passed her driving test and was looking forward to taking toy deliveries to local Children's wards but sadly had no transport, she was in the process of looking for something suitable and affordable. Joanne spent a long time trying to pass her driving test and sadly her car didn't pass it's Mot so she inquired online if anyone was selling a reliable little car so she could use it for delivering toys...Louie's S.M.I.L.E.S is all about taking new toys to local Children's wards in Salisbury district hospital and various wards in Southampton general Hospital these toys are given as gifts for the children to keep and they deliver toys on a monthly basis.
A mutual friend was aware that the family wanted to donate the car and that Joanne was looking for a car and connected them.
Joanne was delighted and very surprised to be contacted and offered the Toyota Yaris as a donation.
" We couldn't believe how thoughtful this family was to be helping us in such a fantastic way it's an absolute Godsend and it will be used for delivering toys and smiles.They are such lovely people and we can't thank them enough we really are overwhelmed by there generosity, we agreed to keep in touch and have plans to do toy deliveries together so they can see there mums car in action."
We would also like to express our sincere thanks to Simon Holman from Heytesbury Mot centre for his generosity doing a full mot free of charge as a gesture towards Louie's S.M.I.L.E.S ...We feel very privileged to have such great support and are very thankful.
Joanne pointed out that she has little knowledge of car makes but will remember this car, as it was meant to be. She will know it as a Toyota from the Toy in Toyota and the registration ends with letters LCM which she say's could stand for Louis Coldwell's Mum. On behalf of myself and everyone at Louie's S.M.I.L.E.S Thank you from the bottom of our hearts .
