London Marathon 2019 for Breast Cancer Care

breast cancer care

Our very own Laura Evans will be running The London Marathon 2019 for the Breast Cancer Care Charity. Laura has been inspired by her mother Sue's fight against Breast Cancer and they really appreciate the support given to her by this amazing charity.

Laura writes:

I have decided to run the London Marathon 2019 for my Mum. I am not a ‘natural’ runner but I wanted to give something back to Breast Cancer Care.

2018, for our family, has not been an easy year. In June, my amazingly strong mum found a lump in her breast, this was a massive shock to the whole family and was a struggle for us all to get our heads around. After copious trips to Plymouth for test after test she was diagnosed with Grade 2 Breast Cancer. In July, shortly after her 50th birthday, she underwent surgery to have the lump removed along with other procedures. Soon after the operation we learnt the cancer had spread to the lymph nodes and she would need to have Chemotherapy followed by Radiology. She is currently undergoing chemotherapy and its been tough on us all, especially her.

Breast Cancer Care have been amazing and supportive from the start. They’ve not only been there for my mum but have supported the whole family. They dedicate so much to those families going through similar situations to my mum. I am running the marathon to raise as much as I can for this amazing charity so that they can continue to help and support other people who need it!

New 45ft Cartwright Artic Trailer with Forklift

Tipping Lorry

Evans Transport has just taken delivery of a brand new Cartwright 45ft artic trailer complete with mounting kit for a Moffett Mounty forklift.

The Moffett has also been provided by Cargotec on a trial basis to try this new venture which if successful the forklift will then be purchased.

The purpose is to provide the end user a solution where the forklift can be dismounted and the goods are unloaded without the need to hire in there own or have the laborious task of taking it off by hand.

The forklift is capable of lifting 2 tonne so bulky pallets can also be offloaded.

The trailer is available to go anywhere in the country but will not be able to travel into Europe due to its height.

Evans Transport concrete division continues to go from strength to strength.

Evans concrete

Numerous installations have been taking place around the North Devon area  over the past few weeks and some of these are featured in the gallery below.

The Evans Concrete team were chosen to supply a special design ready mix concrete for the structures on the now completed Cycle Bridge across the A39 near Barnstaple.

In contrast ready mix concrete was supplied for the base of the new A39 Academy school near Bucks Mills. In both of these large constructions they were aided by a mobile pump.

Working closely with our local farming community we were pleased to supply Higher Cheglynch Farm, West Down, Ilfracombe, here Mr and Mrs Verny required 900 cubic meters for their new Silage pit.

Development continues at a pace in Westward Ho! with upgraded caravan and chalet structures all requiring new foundations and special pump applications.

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.

Devon Air Ambulance

Evanstransport air ambulance 02

We have recently applied this eye catching vinyl to our smooth sided bulk tipping trailer supporting the Devon Air Ambulance charity. It will hopefully help raise awareness for the charity, by traveling around the South West of England and encouraging people to donate.

The aim is "to relieve sickness and injury in and around the county of Devon through provision of an emergency Air Ambulance Service." Every year the Charity needs to raise £5.5 million to run the service.  In addition, we need to raise around £1m more to build capital funds in order to ensure we can replace our aircraft after ten years’ service and to meet significant maintenance and repair costs plus ambitious plans to extend our operating hours.

Keep a look out for this trailer and donate if you can.

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 Transport introduce new system on tyres

Continental2

ContiPressureCheck ADDS ECONOMY AND SAFETY FOR EVANS TRANSPORT

•    Continental Tyres system ‘saves’ tyres with low-grade punctures•    Tyre pressure consistency cuts fuel and wear costs•    Installed on mix of heavy duty tippers, draw bars and tractor/trailer rigs •    Roll-out planned on all new additions to fleet and selected existing vehicles

Evans Transport have introduced the Continental Tyres ContiPressureCheck system on to some of their newer fleet.

Nigel Evans Managing Director said  the system has already saved “a good number” of tyres, on the tipper fleet especially, with ContiPressureCheck alerting his team to slow punctures that could otherwise have gone unnoticed until the tyre was damaged beyond repair.  Evans Transport fits the system itself, including the in-cab monitor that alerts drivers to potentially dangerous and costly pressure changes. 

Nigel added, “Safety and economy are both about a great many factors, but tyres are certainly one of the major ones. We continue to run extensive tests on a range of tyres, everything from new through to remoulds, but, whatever we fit, monitoring pressure is key to ensuring we are doing the best we can. It keeps rolling resistance levels spot on for economy and flags up potential safety issues before they can become real problems.”
