Greenhous VW Van Centre supports Prostate Cancer cycle ride.
With three young men eager to ride from the Christie Hospital in Manchester to the Royal Shrewsbury Hospital and all for Prostate Cancer UK, it meant they had a need for a back-up vehicle and the Greenhous VW Van Centre in Shrewsbury came up trumps with the loan of a VW Transporter to use over the weekend of 30th April/ 1st May.

Adam James from Shrewsbury, Andy McCleary from Atcham and Mark Evason of Whitchurch came up with the idea of completing a ride of just over 70 miles to support a charity which focusses on prostate cancer, a disease which affects so many men in the UK.  The three lads had been training on the roads of Shropshire in preparation for the challenge and that effort was certainly rewarded as the day of the ride the weather was cool, wet and windy.

The staff at the Greenhous VW Van Centre were delighted to support the challenge and Adam, Andy and Mark have raised over £2,500 between them for Prostate Cancer UK.  Adam was quick to thank the Van Centre saying:  “I have organised several cycle rides over the past few years as I was a cancer patient myself at the Christie Hospital, Oswestry Orthopaedic and RSH.  You always need a back-up vehicle and driver in case of emergencies and to get you to or from the start or finish point.  We are very grateful to Greenhous for the loan of the vehicle which met all of our expectations. Also to my Dad for driving the van.”

This is another example of Greenhous staff answering an appeal from members of their community and helping to make a difference for an excellent cause.
