    Weston Hospicecare - Mendip Challenge June 4th 2017

    On Sunday the 4th of June, residents of Somerset, North Somerset (and beyond) will be coming together to take part in a fantastic opportunity to raise money for Weston Hospicecare.

    Howards are proud as punch to announce that they are the main sponsor for the event! The event itself is the Mendip Challenge, a really fun, exciting event for those who are up for a challenge. The 30, 20 and 10 mile routes provide the perfect opportunity to bring the whole family (dogs included) and raise money for a good cause, as the entire event is in aid of Weston Hospicecare.

    Peter Coleman, the Chairman of Howards Motor Group, has said, “Howards are delighted to be the main event sponsors for this wonderful fundraising event. The hospice performs such excellent work for our local community, and fundraising is absolutely essential to keep this going. We wish everyone good luck including our very own Howards team and hope lots of much-needed sponsorship is achieved.”

    Included in the registration fee (which starts at just £10 for adults and £6 for children), Weston Hospicecare will be providing a shuttle from Uphill, Weston-super-mare, to each routes respective start point. Throughout the walk, you will find support from back-walker's, support vehicles, marshalled checkpoints and first aid support, and at the end, participants will receive a finisher’s medal and entry to the post-event party, where you can buy food, drink and wind down, all whilst admiring an edition from our Lotus range.  

    This is not the first time Howards have sponsored Weston Hospicecare, their Midnight Beach, Neon Five and the Colour Run were all fantastic fundraising events in which Howards were involved. Weston Hospicecare which provides life-changing care and assistance for both local people who are experiencing life-limiting illnesses and their loved ones, have been one of our chosen charities for a long time. We believe that the work the Weston Hospicecare does is extremely important and integral to our community, but only 21% of the care they provide is paid for by the NHS.

    That’s where you come in…

    At Howards, our employees love to get involved with local activities, especially those looking to raise money for a good cause; that’s why the Howards Group have a team of about 24 members taking part it this year’s Mendip Challenge. We are looking for any individuals who can walk (or run) 10, 20 or 30 miles to join us on Sunday the 4th of June and to venture across the West Mendip Ways from Wells to Uphill. Get yourself sponsored, and be part of a great cause!
