Avon Fire & Rescue Training with Trucks

Training with Trucks and the Devon Fire Service

This week we had 2 vehicles go into Severn Park Fire and Rescue Training Centre.

We were asked by the training centre if a couple of lorries could be provided for firefighters to look around and understand the layout of them better so they are more prepared to deal with truck related emergencies.

There was a good deal of interaction between the firefighters and drivers with both parties learning more about each other profession.

The trucks and drivers were provided free of charge to the training centre as the company saw this as a worthy cause.

Le Tour De Devon - The North Devon 100

le-Tour-De-Devon-transport-01

On May 1st 2016 - 72 cyclists took on the tough North Devon 100 cycle challenge including Evans Transport own driver  (Cinders). Evans transport has supported the ride from its very inception, a one off event called Le Tour De Devon.

This year the event raised £4500, which will be split between The Chestnut Appeal, a prostate cancer charity based at Derriford Hospital in Plymouth and Combe Martin Football Club.

The club has held the event from the first ride and is in much need of modernisation.

So far the ride has raised over £22,000 for various charities such as Help for Heroes, Devon Air Ambulance and North Devon Hospice.

"The North Devon 100 is very greatful for the support that Evans Transport has given us over the last 4 years and we hope it will continue for the foreseeable future."

Evans sponsors "Gingerweb" in London Marathon

me and noah

Evans Transport are supporting Richard Hughes from "Gingerweb Ltd" our Website team in his London Marathon run in April 2016.

Richard is running for the Caudwell Children charity who double every penny donated to them, so its a great cause and an opportunity to help children all over the country.

Richard is seen here pictured with Noah Wall who was the recipient of his fine new electric wheelchair at the weekend that will change his life. The chair was 80% paid for by Caudwell Childrens Charity which is why Richard chose them to raise money for. He hopes to put as much as possible back into the Caudwell coffers with sponsorship for the big run.

You can sponsor him too of course by visiting this link https://www.justgiving.com/Noahschair

You can find out more about Noah Wall on his website at this link http://www.hugsfornoah.co.uk/
