We fund research to stop prostate cancer killing men


Thanks for taking the time to visit our Just Giving page and an interest in our initiative to raise funds for Prostate Cancer UK.

Last year, our Volvo FH Turbo compound tractor unit set a new record on fuel economy in a well-publicised road test carried out by Commercial Motor magazine. Since then, lots of customer have benefitted from the cost savings and we would like to encourage more customers to trial the trucks for themselves and appreciate the difference it could make to fuel costs along with already exceptional standards on safety and quality. 

For the next 12 month’s one of our demonstrators will be liveried in Prostate Cancer graphics and were asking customers to make a minimum of £100 donation to the charity after each demonstration. Of course, we would hugely appreciate if more could be donated and absolutely anyone is free to make a donation. The haulage industry has rightly received huge credit for keeping the country moving throughout the pandemic and we’re hoping it will be equally as keen to support this initiative. We’ll also be offering opportunities in each of our dealerships to make smaller donations along with some Prostate Cancer UK merchandise.

Around 1 in 8 men will get prostate cancer in their lifetime, however, it is also the most commonly diagnosed cancer in the UK with more than 47,500 men diagnosed each year. That’s 129 men every day and although early diagnosis and treatment means that more men are living with and after prostate cancer it very sadly still causes the death of more than 11,500 men every year - That’s one person every 45 minutes, the same time as a routine HGV driver’s daily rest break!
