Pentagon In The Local Community
Since we opened our first dealership in Derby in 1991 we’ve worked hard to earn the trust and respect of our customers and employees by supporting some of the good causes that are important to the local community.
How Could We Help?
If you would like us to consider supporting your local charity or group, simply write to the General Manager at your local dealership about your charity or organisation and how you think we might be able to support you.
Remember there are many charities and organisations that would love our support and unfortunately we are unable to support everyone – so please accept our apologies if we have to say no on this occasion. Hopefully you'll be more successful next time.
