    100 mile walk for SSAFA Charity

    In September, General Sales Manager Lynne from Howards took on a 100 mile walk through Camino de Santiago, across Spain to raise awareness and fundraise for SSAFA, the Armed Forces Charity.

Howards are supporting general Manager Lynne, who has taken on the challenge to walk 100 miles across the Camino de Santiago route of Northern Spain, to raise awareness and fundraise for SSAFA, the Armed Forces Charity.

Setting off on Sunday 10th from St. Jean Pied De Port, the long 100 mile trek begun.

The SSAFA are the UKs oldest national tri-service military charity. Their vision is to create a society in which the Armed Forces, veterans and their families can thrive. The Charity is a trusted source of support for serving personnel, veterans and their families in their time of need. 

Support is available for people at any stage in their military career; from the youngest recruit to the oldest veteran – no one’s service is ever forgotten. They have more than 4,000 trained SSAFA volunteers who provide personalised, face-to-face support to those in their local area.

Today 15th September, after 5 days of walking, they made it! Leaving at dawn they arrived at Santiago de Compostela before noon. Huge congratulations to Lynne and all the team that took part, a brilliant and important cause to raise awareness of.

    We can introduce you to a selected panel of lenders, which includes manufacturer lenders linked directly to the franchises that we represent. An introduction to a lender does not amount to independent financial advice and we act as their agent for this introduction. Our approach is to introduce you first to the manufacturer lender linked directly to the particular franchise you are purchasing your vehicle from, who are usually able to offer the best available package for you, taking into account both interest rates and other contributions. If they are unable to make you an offer of finance, we then seek to introduce you to whichever of the other lenders on our panel is able to make the next best offer of finance for you. Our aim is to secure the best deal you are eligible for from our panel of lenders. Lenders may pay a fixed commission to us for introducing you to them, calculated by reference to the vehicle model or amount you borrow. Different lenders may pay different commissions for such introductions, and manufacturer lenders linked directly to the franchises that we represent may also provide preferential rates to us for the funding of our vehicle stock and also provide financial support for our training and marketing. But any such amounts they and other lenders pay us will not affect the amounts you pay under your finance agreement, all of which are set by the lender concerned. If you ask us what the amount of commission is, we will tell you in good time before the Finance agreement is executed. All finance applications are subject to status, terms and conditions apply, UK residents only, 18’s or over. Guarantees may be required.
