Our 5th year fundraising for Action Medical Research
At Cross Street Garage we have a very strong bond with Action Medical Research. Since 2014 we have been fundraising for this amazing charity. Over the past 4 years members of the Cross Street Team have raised over £40,000 with the help from some amazing local companies; Smarter Media, Snap On Tools, Smart Designs, ARI Fleet, GA Solutions and not to forget the amazing friends and family members that got involved.
This year our Site Manager (Dan Sinclair) and Sales Manager (Shaun Rudman) will be accompanied by our long serving ex Service Advisor Gurj Khaira and his wife Harpavan Khaira when they take on the London marathon on the 28th April 2019.A few months later Dan and Shaun will take a team of 11 Riders on Action's 20TH ANNIVERSARY ride.
Kicking off in London they will ride along the rolling fields and villages of rural Kent, passing orchards and traditional oast houses and tackling the North Downs before taking the ferry from Dover to Calais. In France they’ll head South through ancient Desvres onto Abbeville, on the River Somme. Abbeville suffered badly from WW2 air raids, but its beautiful Flemish-style architecture is still in evidence.The next day they will leave Abbeville behind them and they will follow the River Somme east out of the town in the direction of Amiens. These lands are renowned for the terrible battles of the First World War. Their route soon turns south and will finish the day in Beauvais. Their final day’s cycling takes them over the river Théram and south of Beauvais towards the great capital city, heading towards the small town of Meru and continue south through beautiful countryside bringing them to the suburbs of Paris where they will make their way to the big finale under the Eiffel Tower! That evening they will celebrate with a few glasses of bubbly before heading out to see the sights of the capital. The adventure concludes with the fantastic opportunity to catch the action of the Tour de France.
In between this the team will hold a number of numerous events including a horse racing night, poker night, children's party and numerous fun days with amazing stars like Paddington Bear along with some of the Paw Patrol attending.
The team would massively appreciate any support, prizes and donations. We would also welcome anyone that would like to join us on the ride.
We couldn't do it without them..........
In 2018 we received a visit from Lee the vendor development executive of ARI, Lee made our fundraising a lot easier when he presented us with a massive cheque of £6597.00 from ARI Masterserve.
The Masterserve Foundation exists to raise charitable donations from members of the Masterserve Network and ARI and will distribute these donations to national and regional charities related to Social Aid and Development, and Healthcare.
