Tyre Spot Goes The Extra Mile

Local company Tyre Spot have chosen to support St Oswald’s Hospice by partnering up with Turkish company Lassa to donate a proportion of the sale of Lassa branded tyres.

Tyre Spot have supported the Hospice since 2017 through a range of fundraising activities from selling our pins and beanies to donating tyres for our company vehicles like the patient transport busses and mini busses. This May and June, Johnathon Shaw, Company Director of Tyre Spot has decided to donate £1 from every sale of their bestselling tyre brand, Lassa, to St Oswald’s Hospice and we couldn't be happier!

Lassa, who are partnered with Bridgestone Tyres, is one of the biggest tyre companies in Europe, shipping to over 50 countries worldwide. The company are offering free Amazon vouchers to customers who purchase a Lassa tyre in Tyre Spot depots around the region in addition to the £1 donation from Tyre Spot to the hospice.

Johnathon Shaw, Company Director of Tyre Spot commented:

My Auntie received care at St Oswald’s a few years back and ever since, as a family, we’ve always supported the charity. This year I’ve decided to choose the sale from Lassa tyres as our donation, as they are one of our best sellers, which maximises the potential of money to be raised for the Hospice. They’re a good value quality tyre which we have sold for over 30 years, with such a trusted brand we hope many customers will choose a tyre which can help give back locally, and maybe even benefit them or someone they know in the future.


We currently do MOT’s and tyre repairs to all of the official St Oswald’s transport vehicles – which we put Lassa tyres on - and offer the staff a discount on tyres and MOTs at our depots. Working with the Hospice has been great, as a family we have so many fond memories of the quality care not only my auntie received during her stay but the care my whole family benefitted from during and after. We’re a local, family run company; supporting a local charity is perfect for us as we know the donations will help people living nearby.

Jess Murphy, Senior Fundraiser for Business Partnerships added:  

Tyre Spot do so much for us as a Hospice, not only selling merchandise but donating a portion of their tyre sales to ultimately maximise their donation. Last time Tyre Spot teamed up with Bridgestone and raised over £2000 in the two months and they are aiming to beat that this time round. It’s lovely to hear how enthusiastic Johnathon is about raising money for the Hospice.


Lassa give a lot back to their local community, so we are delighted with their incentive of Amazon Vouchers for customers of Tyre Spot. The support from both companies is incredible and we look forward to seeing the new total raised from the next two months.
