Fleet Alliance raises over £12,000 for charity

Fleet Alliance has raised over £12,000 from this year’s Monster Bike and Hike in aid of Maggie’s Cancer Care Centres thanks to the efforts of fleet customers, suppliers, staff , family and friends.

Fleet Alliance had a team of seven staff in this year’s event, the fourth in which it had participated and the first in which it was the official transport sponsor. Over the last four years, the company has now raised more than £45,000 in charitable donations for the cancer charity.

This year, the company provided an assorted fleet of vehicles for the event, including people carriers for Maggie’s staff and volunteers, 4x4 vehicles for teams of off-road marshals, road cars for route marshals and medics and mini-buses for participants.

Managing director Martin Brown paid tribute to the efforts of his team this year and confirmed that Fleet Alliance would again be transport partner for next year’s event.

“I would like to extend my thanks to you on behalf of everyone taking part in this year's Monster Bike and Hike. So far, donations from customers, suppliers, staff family and friends have helped us raise over £12,000.”

“The team gave their all and have the blisters to prove it. The whole of Fleet Alliance is proud of their achievements. I would also like to thank our wonderful support team. Their organisation, support and encouragement were a great help to us all.

“The donations raised will go a long way to helping Maggie's provide invaluable support for anyone in the UK with cancer or family members caring for a loved one affected by the illness.”

Gemma McDonald, corporate partnership manager at Maggie’s Cancer Caring Centres, said: “The Monster Bike and Hike plays a vital role in opening the doors of Maggie’s Centres and we are very grateful for Fleet Alliance’s support in this year’s event as our transport partner and for their sterling fund-raising efforts.”
