Staff raise cash for hospice in raft race challenge

EIGHT MEMBERS of staff at our Hadfield Road dealership in Cardiff recently (June, 2016) took part in a raft race in aid of a charity in the city.

So far the team has raised an amazing £300 for George Thomas Hospice Care from the race. Donations are still coming in so the final figure is yet to be calculated.

Gareth Howells, our General Manager at the dealership, which was the principal sponsor for the event, said: “We had a fantastic time taking part in the raft race. We designed our raft at the workshop and it did manage to keep us afloat! We’re delighted that so far we have raised £300 for George Thomas Hospice Care, which is our chosen Charity of the Year for 2016.

“This was the seventh annual Raft Race and it took place on June 5 along the beautiful river Taff. It started at Llandaff Rowing Club and consisted of 1,000m upstream paddle and then turning around and racing back another 1,000m. The event was fun for all the family with food and entertainment. We can’t wait to sign up to take part again next year. A huge ‘thank you’ to everyone who sponsored us.”
