    Weston Hospicecare - Mendip Challenge June 4th 2017

    Howards are proud to announce that they are the main sponsor for 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 and all in aid of Weston Hospicecare.

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!

  • Howard Garages (Weston) Ltd is an Appointed Representative of Automotive Compliance Ltd, who is authorised and regulated by the Financial Conduct Authority (FCA No 497010). Automotive Compliance Ltd’s permissions as a Principal Firm allows Howard Garages (Weston) Ltd to act as a credit broker, not as a lender, for the introduction to a limited number of lenders and to act as an agent on behalf of the insurer for insurance distribution activities only.

    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.
