Derbyshire entrepreneur has a need for speed to help charity
Stevenson is a director at Astute Recruitment, a Derby-based specialist accountancy recruitment agency, and will be participating in this year’s Monte Carlo or Bust event (4th-10th June), which involves a four day rally across Europe.
This is the fourth year the rally has taken place, and Stevenson is hoping to raise invaluable funds to help support Macmillan by racing an old banger across the winding roads of Europe.
Stevenson said, “I am extremely excited to be taking part in the rally this year as it is a fun and unusual experience and a great way to fundraise for important causes. As a business owner, I think it is important to raise awareness and funds for charity – and the rally is a perfect way to achieve this and for us to support Macmillan.
“We are aiming to raise £750 through participating in the event and we have already received phenomenal support locally. We are extremely thankful to APS Fleet Services, which is sponsoring our car in this rally.
“We think the car looks fantastic and we cannot wait to see it in action, but there’s no doubt that it’s going to be a challenge – I’m really looking forward to it.”
Derbyshire-based specialists, APS Fleet Services, are the official sponsors of Astute Recruitment’s entry into the event and have put their weight behind Sarah as she flies the flag for Derby.
Giles Allen of APS Fleet Services, said, “We wanted to support a local Derbyshire business, and it is wonderful to help support Sarah on her mission to raise money for Macmillan. Macmillan is a charity which helps so many people, and we believe it is important to support such a worthy cause. We are hoping to continue to support Astute Recruitment as it continues to take part in many rallies in the future.”
Astute Recruitment works across the East Midlands, recruiting for permanent and temporary staff across Derbyshire, Nottinghamshire and Leicestershire.
