Chris gets our support for 5,000 mile ride for hospice

THE MANAGING Director of a footwear retailer in Cardiff has had a helping hand from us this month (June, 2015) for his charity moped ride.

We have sponsored Chris Macnamara from The Brogue Trader £100 to ride 5,000 miles from Cardiff to Croatia and back during June in aid of George Thomas Hospice Care.

Gareth Howells, General Manager at our dealership on Hadfield Road in Cardiff, explained: “Chris is raising money for George Thomas Hospice Care and this also happens to be our dealership’s Charity of the Year so we were more than happy to give him a helping hand with his fundraising.

“Chris has quite a challenge ahead of him as he is planning to go from Cardiff to Croatia and back again on his moped in the space of 10 days. We wish him the best of luck.”

Chris will travel through Wales, England, Belgium, Germany and Austria and will finally end up in Croatia. He will start his journey this Saturday (June 6).

George Thomas Hospice Care provides specialist home-based palliative care for people suffering from cancer and other life threatening illness.

It was established in 1984 and has helped more than 22,000 patients and their families in Cardiff. George Thomas Hospice Care is committed to personal dignity, quality of life and the highest possible standards of care and service.

Chris added: “George Thomas Hospice Care are a fantastic cancer care charity and I wanted to do something to raise much needed funds and awareness for the organisation.

“I would like to say a huge ‘thank you’ to Wessex Garages for its sponsorship. I am hoping to raise at least £5,000 for the charity.”
