As one of our charities of the year we recently provided Help for Heroes with a number of mini buses to help transport equipment and crew members across the country for their annual Hero Ride. The support vehicles were driven to four key compass points based in Colchester, Edinburgh, Plymouth and even Paris before assembling in Windsor for the grand finale.
The charity’s highly regarded Hero Ride is one of their biggest fundraisers and sees thousands of keen cyclists travel from different areas across the UK where they meet in Windsor for the Hero Ride’s Grand Finale. This year over 1, 100 cyclists crossed the finish line on 21 June at the Royal Windsor Racecourse in a bid to show their support for our wounded, sick and injured servicemen and women with all monies raised going directly to the charity to aid their recovery.
Brian Benfield, Help for Heroes’ Logistics Manager, said: “The vehicles provided from SHB acted as an invaluable support to the overall success and safety of Hero Ride 2015.
“It is essential to be confident with the reliability of your vehicles particularly when they are fundamental to the safety of your event and SHB did not disappoint.”
Help for Heroes is one of SHB’s charities of the year along with Cancer Research.
