Shades of Grey support Wiltshire Air Ambulance in style

By Anita Jaynes on 30 June, 2015

Shades of Grey chauffeur service is offering Swindon’s school leavers with the chance to ride in style and do good for one of Wiltshire’s best loved charities at the same time.

The company, part of Flightlink Executive Travel, which has the largest fleet of executive cars in the area, is offering to donate 21% of the price of each prom booking to Wiltshire Air Ambulance as part of the group’s 21st anniversary celebrations.

Available to hire for potential prom kings and queen will be the company’s belle of the ball, a Mercedes S class complete with luxurious extras such as spacious full leather interior and heated seats.

Cars can also be customised with ribbon to match dresses, are driven by professional, uniformed chauffeurs and offer much better value for money than other typical prom travel options.

Ridgeway School pupil Lucy Davidson, 15, from Wroughton used the service to travel to her prom with her friends Tilly Bishop, Lewis Taylor and Stephen Hobbs.   She said: “The prom is all about getting dressed up and arriving in style and so I wanted to make sure that we had the best possible car for the occasion.

“The Mercedes S Class was a great car to arrive at the prom in and created exactly the right impression.  Knowing that we were also helping Wiltshire Air Ambulance was a bonus too.”

Jo Clifford, business development manager for Shades of Grey, added: “Wiltshire Air Ambulance is our chosen charity for our 21st anniversary and so it was a natural choice to be able to help them through the prom promotion.

“Our cars offer timeless style for any event that you want to make a great first impression at, whether that’s a prom, a wedding, party or a smart day out.”

Shades of Grey, named in recognition of the combination of the popular love story and the colour of the company’s fleet, also provide wedding cars, again able to be personalised through ribbon colour and flowers.

As well as Shades of Grey, Flightlink also operate Eventlink, providing luxury chauffeur services for conferences and events, and Sportlink, which offers executive chauffeur travel for sports events and meets, including regattas and racing events.
