Cardiff City FC Foundation is delighted to welcome Euro Commercials as the Charity’s latest sponsor for the Men of Harlech Bike Challenge.
Euro Commercial is the official Mercedes-Benz Commercial dealer for South Wales. Thanks to an existing partnership deal secured in 2015, community coaches from Cardiff City FC Foundation have benefited from using a fleet of 13 fuel-efficient Citan 109 CDI long wheel based vans to visit hundreds of schools and other community venues throughout South Wales.
In support of the three-day event, Euro Commercials have loaned the charity a long wheel based Mercedez-Benz Sprinter which will be used as a support vehicle on the challenge, enabling bikes to be transported to Porthmadog ready for the 190-mile bike ride to Cardiff, facing climbs of over 10,000 feet.
Sunday, 16th July – Transport to Porthmadog
Monday, 17th July – Kick off from Porthamdog to Aberystwyth
Tuesday 18th July – Aberystwyth to Llanelli
Wednesday, 19th July – Llanelli to Cardiff
Group Van Sales Manager, Paul Cox spoke on the partnership: “Through our existing partnership with the Cardiff City FC Foundation, we are aware of the positive impact this fabulous organisation has throughout our local communities as they strive to inspire and educate people to be more active, healthy and knowledgeable.
“As the official South Wales Mercedes-Benz Dealer, Euro Commercials are delighted to be a part of this challenging event. We have no doubt that the money raised will top last year’s total and we wish all the riders well.”
Foundation Director Gavin Hawkey expressed his gratitude: “I’m delighted that Euro Commercials have once again partnered with the Foundation to support us in achieving our goals. The money raised from the event will be used to help the Foundation improve the outcomes for young people who are not in education, employment or training, by helping young people find work, education courses and ensure individuals are given progression opportunities.”
