Autosmart All Stars paddle in support of local charity

Boat Race Team

The Autosmart North West distributors took part in the Salford dragon boat festival to raise monies for The Christie; a charity fighting against cancer.

On the 20th May our North West team of distributors got together at the Ontario Basin in the sunshine to face 18 other teams in a race down the quay.  The Autosmart All Stars with no training or preparation improved with each race under the leadership of Wendy, our drummer girl.

Captain Bob Rowland, North West Regional Business Manager says, “Although this was a fun, team building exercise it was more important for us to raise monies for The Christie. Cancer touches the lives of most of us in one form or another and getting to our target made the team feel very proud. It was also a great relief that we never capsized!”.

Well done to the North West team who came 5 out of the 19 teams and raised £2000 so far for this great cause.
