We are excited to announce that Easy-trim are taking part in the 2019 Pavestone Rally!
Reims ● Stuttgart ● Salzburg ●Venice ● Lake Como
Taking place over 4 days in September, the adventure will see us attempt to make the journey from Reims in the French Alps across to Lake Como in Italy, in a (just about!) road legal car. The aim of the game is to raise funds for three much deserving charities; the Rainy Day Trust, Variety Children’s Charity and the Teenage Cancer Trust, all while having a whole lot of fun and a barrel of laughs!
One of the charities – the Teenage Cancer Trust – is particularly close to our hearts after one of our own, Graeme Thow Area Sales Manager, was given the devastating news that his 15 year old son was suffering from two cancerous brain tumours early last year. Having undergone a number of surgeries and intensive chemotherapy and radiotherapy treatments, Keiran has thankfully come through it and is in remission. Though he stayed positive and strong throughout, no child or their family should have to face those dark and incredibly challenging times and charities like the Teenage Cancer Trust work to provide the care and support to get young people like Keiran through it.
We cannot begin to imagine what Graeme and his family have gone through and so we want to do all we can, with YOUR help, to raise as much funds as possible to support the charity in their work. Yes, it’s all a bit silly and we’re sure we’ll have a great time in our four day adventure, but there’s a serious cause here and we need you to please dig deep and pledge your support here.
So…our Dream Rally Team is made up of Rob, our National Sales Manager, and Becky and Kimberly who are members of our illustrious Marketing department. They are busy making preparations for the adventure and first on the list was the purchase of “Sheila” our (hopefully) trusty Hyundai Santa Fē! We knew Sheila was the car for us when we spotted her registration plate… entirely by coincidence, the letters make up our team members and company initials! Our thirsty 2.4ltr 4×4 celebrates her 15th birthday next week and bless her, she’s about to undergo a special makeover to mark the occasion. Keep your eyes peeled for a sneak preview and more updates on our teams preparations’ on our social media pages.
