    Howards Employee Takes on Five Nations Sponsored Bike Ride

    Daniel Sparks recently embarked on a journey of 1,000 miles across five nations, find out more here...

Daniel Sparks, Parts Advisor at Howards Citroen and Honda in Taunton, together with his two friends Tom and Nick, will be taking on a strenuous bike ride in June. Cycling from John o’ Groats in Scotland through to Northern Ireland and Ireland, they will then travel then across to Wales before finally making the long cycling journey down to Lands-End at the tip of the Cornish coast.

The overall trip will cover a distance of 1,000 miles and a total elevation which extends over the height of Mount Everest. They aim to complete this challenge over the course of 17 days of cycling, with a couple of days rest in-between.

Daniel Sparks commented, “This ride would not be possible without the help of companies like Howards Citroen who have generously supplied us with one of their vehicles to get us up to the top to start the ride, Howards Honda who have donated a full tank of fuel. And also the bicycle chain Bridgwater for offing us discount on all the necessary gear for the ride.”

Daniel and his friends are attempting this challenge to aid and raise as much money as they can for local charities St Margret’s Somerset Hospice and Children’s Hospice South West. Both charities have been helping the people of the local community for many years and rely on public support to be able to continue their good work.

    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.
