Motus Commercials Gloucester has presented a cheque to local cause, Great Western Air Ambulance Charity (GWAAC), following a successful fundraising event earlier in the year.
The cheques sum totals over £1200, smashing the ambitious £1000 target. This was raised by a team of 13 cyclists consisting of customers, staff members from Motus Commercials as well as 5 employees from DAF Trucks UK Head Office who took on a challenging 59mile route through the Cotswolds. The team started at Motus Commercials Swindon at 9am and all made it to the new 3acre Motus Commercials site, on Spinnaker Road in Gloucester, within just 4 hours
Daniel Fitzjohn, Regional Director at Motus Commercials for the South Western and West Midlands Regions, comments “The route was definitely a challenge for all in the group, especially cycling some of those Cotswold hills! However, with determination and a great support team I am pleased to say that all riders finished the route."
Motus Commercials decided that GWAAC was the right charity for the event because of their prominence and importance to the local community. Daniel explains, “We chose to raise money for the Great Western Air Ambulance Charity because our region touches all of the area that it covers and we know we do have remote patches which our colleagues and customers like to explore. They do a great job and we’re really pleased to be able to present this sum of money to such a good cause.”
Accepting the cheque on behalf of the charity was Holly Adlem, Corporate Partnerships Coordinator at Great Western Air Ambulance Charity. Holly comments, “We were so thrilled that Motus Commercials chose to support GWAAC with their cycling event! As the local air ambulance for Gloucestershire, it means a lot to us when local businesses get behind us. A big well done and thank you to the cyclists who took on the challenge, and to those who supported them!”
