Rolls Royce Treatment for Butterwick Supporters

As part of a special awareness raising event a series of fabulous prizes have been created exclusively for Butterwick Hospice by generous supporting businesses AND they all include the use of a very special chauffeur driven Rolls Royce Ghost which arrived at Butterwick House Hospice today (Friday 12th February 2016).

This fabulous 'Roller' has been commissioned and donated by Rolls-Royce Motor Cars to Together for Short Lives, a charity that represents children's hospices nationally. Simon Cowell, the charity’s Patron, handed the unique car over to Together For Short Lives CEO Barbara Gelb.

The car is touring children's hospices around the UK to raise awareness of the work that hospices do to support life limited children and their families.

Butterwick House Hospice now have use of the car for one week from 12th to 20th February 2016.

First to see the car arrive were Helen Carter and Dalton Bates, two of the young adults who regularly come to Butterwick House for short breaks. 

Helen even got to spend some time sitting in the car which she said was very comfortable and luxurious.

During its stay with Butterwick House the car will deliver the winners of the various prizes won in the On a Rolls Raffle. Prizes included:


  • A luxury Valentine's weekend for two at five stars Rockliffe Hall Hotel
  • Theatre break for four people to the Rocky Horror Show at the Sunderland Empire.
  • Spa day for two people at Headlam Hall Hotel 
  • Family Fun day out to AMF Bowling, Frankie and Benny's, Funshak and finishing off with an evening at the cinema.

Thanks go to Stuart and Tracy Noddings of Chauffeur Driven Cars in Stockton for driving our lucky prize winners to their destinations throughout the week.

Keep an eye on our news pages for updates on the car's travels.
