Good Morning to you all,
As many of you may already be aware from one of the missing threads im entered into a charity event next month (more details below) so please can you read and then please dig deep as its for the only automotive charity in the united kingdom - a subject close to most of our hearts ......
The event in question involves us purchasing a vehicle for under £500 and then driving to Monaco in the south east of France and back in three days (a total of 1900 miles from our location) that's the easy part from our point of view. We have sourced a suitable vehicle for the venture, An amazing imported Kia Carnival with 265,000 Kilometres on the clock... which we purchased for £250 !!this vehicle rates in my all time top 10 vehicles that I have driven (that have nearly scared me to death) and Marshall's (my employer) have kindly put up the £500 entrance fee and offered to cover the costs of the Vehicle. but we will be covering the costs of Fuel, Tolls,annual leave etc ourselves. and hopefully upon our safe return the Vehicle is then sold at an open auction and its will then hopefully raise a little more for this worthy cause.
For those of you who are not familiar with the organization, http://www.Ben.org.uk BEN exists to provide care, helping the automotive and related industries provide care and support for employees and their dependants in times of need. They provide a wide range of different types of support depending on your, or your loved ones, situation. This could mean helping with the cost of specialist disabled equipment for your child, giving you emotional support through an illness or funding a respite break.
But to make the event worthwhile we also need sponsors and I'm hoping that this is where you can assist us, I am asking you to help us out this year by giving a donation to BEN.And I hope we can count on you for a generous donation.
I thank you for your time and consideration. We look forward to whatever support you can provide
