GK Ford driving force behind fundraiser

14 February 2014

Our commercial partners GK Ford of Mansfield has agreed to provide two vehicles to Hall-Fast for their Coast to Coast charity bike ride, which is raising money for the Fountaindale SEN School.

The vehicles a Ford Tourneo and a Ford LWB will be used to transport the equipment and team members to the start in Morecambe and from the finish in Bridlington

The Mansfield based motor company provides new and used Ford cars and commercial vehicles, hire out cars, vans and mini buses and also offer aftersales services from their Southwell Road West showroom.

‘’It really is a nice gesture from GK Ford to provide us with two vehicles for this charity event;’’ commented Hall-Fast director Rachel Hall ‘’it is an indication of their community spirit, and I think it is great that Mansfield based companies are coming together to help a Mansfield based charity!’’

Alison Davies - Rental Operator at GK Ford Commented ‘’When we heard of Hall-Fast’s latest fundraising challenge and their need for transportation we were keen to help out, it is in aid of a great cause.’’

Hall-Fast have pledged to raise £40,000 within 24 months for the specialist school, which helps youngsters aged 3 to 19 with physical and sensory needs to enable them to purchase new equipment.

And they are well on their way to achieving this with more than £22,600 raised so far, and with the second Hall-Fast Charity Ball taking place on 9th May, expected to raise more than £20,000, it is likely that closer to £50,000 will actually be raised.
