Sleaford-based AW Repair Group recently won the coveted title of Bodyshop of the Year at the industry awards in September.

As winners, the company sent an e-shot out to customers and the industry, including social media, that pledged for every congratulatory ‘like’, ‘retweet’, ‘favourite’ and view of their video on YouTube, by supporters, they would donate £1 to charity.

Mr Walsh chose the charity in memory of his late father who died earlier this year.

The total has reached £1,079 and managing director Andrew Walsh presented the money at his Sleaford headquarters on Friday to Helena Mair, fundraising manager for the British Heart Foundation in Lincolnshire and Nottinghamshire.
