FMG aims for vehicle recovery world record for Children in Need

FMG is looking to set a world record for the most recoveries carried out in a 24 hour period to raise funds for Children in Need.

FMG operatives and recovery partners will be looking to load a ‘broken down’ car onto a recovery vehicle as many times as possible, before midnight tonight (November 15).

The attempt will take place at FMG House on St. Andrews Road, Huddersfield, HD1 6NA.

Ian Leaver, technical trainer at FMG, said: “As a business, we’ve been very proactive when it comes to charity, and have raised thousands for our nominated charities every year.

“We wanted to look at ways in which we could use our expertise to raise funds for Children in Need this year, and came up with the idea of this vehicle recovery marathon.

“Our people and partners have got right behind the project and we’re ready for snow, rain, wind or sunshine.

"We hope to raise lots of cash for the cause, and we’ve already raised well over £1,000.

"We’ll be holding additional events throughout the day to boost this further.”

Donations can be made here.
