Kind-hearted Preston Audi team members tackle gruelling Manchester to Blackpool charity cycle ride on 4th July to support Derian House Children’s Hospice.

Four keen cyclists from Preston Audi, which is part of family owned Swansway Group with car and van dealerships across the North West and Midlands, are proudly taking on a gruelling Manchester to Blackpool cycle ride on Sunday 4th July, to raise funds for Derian House Children’s Hospice in Chorley.

The Preston Audi tem consists of four keen cyclists from the Aftersales Department (L-R); Thomas Hoyles Service Advisor, Neale Rogers Parts Advisor, Ray Hardy Aftersales Manager and Adam Larkinson Senior Service Advisor. And the intrepid team have been training together for the big event on Wednesday evenings after work.

The team decided to give their support to Derian House in recognition of the wonderful work undertaken there to look after children and young people with life-limiting or life threatening conditions and their families. But the support doesn’t stop there! As part of Swansway Group’s commitment to supporting staff members’ fund-raising for their chosen charity in their non-work time, each team member will be able to claim a further £100 donation from Swansway Group to help swell the coffers, which will give the Derian House funds a very welcome boost of an additional £400!

Swansway Group Director David Smyth said,

“We are always delighted to support any staff member who takes part in a fund-raising event, whether it means they're soaking in a bath of beans, skydiving from the clouds,or running a marathon, we want to know and we want to help.

We have found that tremendous value can be created, cultivated and sustained for our organisation when we come together as a team to support each other in a way that extends beyond the workplace.

This Preston Audi team’s efforts are also a wonderful way for us to give back to one of the communities where we do business, and we are only too happy to increase the donation to support the inspirational work of Derian House Children’s Hospice, as a gift from our family to other families.”
