We’re once again backing the Dalmatian Bike Ride

A CHARITY in Newport has been provided with some four-wheeled support from us for a fundraising event taking place tomorrow (June 4, 2016).

St David’s Hospice Care will use a Fiat 500X from our dealership on Newport Retail Park to lead the way during its annual Dalmatian Bike Ride.

Martin Watts, our General Manager, explained: “We’re really pleased we have been able to once again help St David’s Hospice Care, which is our Charity of the Year, by providing them with a vehicle for the event.

“This is the fifth annual event and last year the riders who took part raised an amazing £31,000 for the charity.

“The Fiat 500X will be leading the participants around the route, which starts in Caerleon. There are two routes – a 40 and a 20 mile route. They are circular and take around two to four hours to complete. The ride will then finish at The Priory in Caerleon for a fantastic ‘Finish Festival & BBQ’ event. We would like to wish all the riders the best of luck and hope they have an enjoyable day in aid of an incredible charity.”

St David’s Hospice Care has been providing community-based hospice care for people with cancer and other life-threatening illnesses, and their families, since 1979. Its care is provided to people living within Caerphilly, Monmouthshire, Newport, Torfaen and within certain areas of South and Mid Powys.
