Pentagon Vauxhall Derby - DKC's main sponsor for 2013/14 - have celebrated their year of fundraising efforts by presenting Derby Kids' Camp with a cheque for more than £10,000!

Over the past year, Derby's main Vauxhall dealer has been working hard to raise money for Derby Kids' Camp, the resulting donation being used to fund more than 100 children's holidays!

DKC Chairman, Chris Edwards said, "Having such a high profile, Derby-based main sponsor has been fantastic for Derby Kids' Camp and the team have been hugely supportive to us throughout the whole year. We knew that the Pentagon team had some big targets for fundraising, but nothing prepared us for a figure of this magnitude!
"We are hugely grateful to the staff and customers who have been so supportive and generous and it is a great pleasure to be able to confirm that the amount raised will fully-fund the much needed holidays of more than 100 local children."

Huge thanks to everyone at Pentagon - you are amazing!
