    Miles for Smiles: Danny Street's Four-Marathon Journey to Support Weston Hospice

    Follow Danny Street, Operations Director at Howards Motor Group, as he tackles four marathons in Tokyo, Paris, London, and Chicago. This marathon series is part of his initiative to support Weston Hospice. Stay updated on the facts of his journey and the impact on the cause.

At Howards Motor Group, our commitment to community extends beyond the showroom floor, reaching the heart of compassionate initiatives. One shining example is our Operations Director, Danny Street, whose unwavering dedication to Weston Hospicecare has left an indelible mark on both our team and the community we serve.



This year, Danny has once again laced up his running shoes, embarking on an ambitious mission to run four marathons in Tokyo, Paris, London, and Chicago. While this feat is indeed commendable, it's not the first time Danny has taken strides for a cause close to his heart. His commitment to Weston Hospicecare goes back several years, marked by both his involvement in the community and previous marathon endeavors.

Weston Hospicecare, for over 30 years, has been a beacon of support for individuals and families facing life-limiting illnesses in Weston-super-Mare and North Somerset. All services, provided free of charge, encompass palliative care for patients with various conditions, such as cancer, motor neurone disease, Parkinson's disease, and other life-limiting illnesses. The hospice's reach extends to Clevedon, Yatton, Cheddar, Axbridge, Burnham, Highbridge, and the surrounding areas, providing essential care for a population of more than 170,000.

Danny's involvement with Weston Hospicecare predates his current marathon challenge. As an advocate for the hospice, he has worked tirelessly to support their initiatives in the past. This year's marathon series is a continuation of his commitment, a testament to his enduring dedication to making a difference in the lives of those touched by the hospice's services.

All efforts towards Weston Hospicecare do not go unnoticed, or undervalued. Many extraordinary moments are made possible by donations to Weston Hospicecare. From arranging dream trips for patients to meet their idols, like the memorable encounter with scientist Brian Cox, to creating special memories for families, the hospice strives to uplift spirits and bring joy to those facing challenging times.

"I just want to say thank you to everyone who helped with our Brussels trip to see Brian Cox. The trip went really well, and my son was totally blown away meeting Brian Cox. This is truly a special memory for him and all of us."

A Patients Relative

As Danny continues his marathon journey, we invite our community to rally behind him and Weston Hospicecare. Your support not only fuels Danny's determination but also contributes to the hospice's ongoing mission to provide comprehensive care and create meaningful moments for patients and their loved ones.

In the spirit of community, Howards Motor Group expresses gratitude to Danny Street for exemplifying the values that define us—compassion, dedication, and a commitment to making a positive impact on the lives of those around us. Together, let's celebrate Danny's strides and join hands to support Weston Hospicecare in their vital 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.
