Fleet Financial and Charles Hurst were proud sponsors of the Marie Curie Driving Challenge on 12 October. 141 participants took part in the first ever Driving Challenge at Balmoral Park, Lisburn. Despite the bitter cold, everyone was in great spirits, taking on a range of unusual vehicles from road sweepers to 40ft lorries and even a fire engine.
Fleet Financial had entered a team and Ross Moffett, Denise Curlett, Karen Young and Nicola Henry represented the Fleet Financial team on the day. Nicola Henry said, "We had a fantastic day at the Marie Curie Driving Challenge, the team had great fun driving once in a lifetime vehicles like bin lorries, police Land Rovers, fire engine's and Goldliner buses. I would thoroughly recommend this day as an opportunity for companies to develop team building whilst supporting Marie Curie."
Fleet Financial raised £1300 for the charity on the day. Philip Miley says, "We would like to thank our customers and dealers for their generous donations to this worthwhile cause, Marie Curie is a charity that touches everyone and we are extremely grateful for all the donations received."
Marie Curie hopes to raise £20,000 from the proceeds of this event to help with nursing care for terminally ill patients.
