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!

South West Truckers Children's Convoy

evans transport sw truckers

 

This year saw 3 of the lads taking part in the South West Truckers children’s convoy held on the 20th May.

The convoy ran from Bude rugby club back to The Milky Way. Each driver is introduced to a child or young adult along with their carer and then takes them in the cab for a ride to the Milky Way.

Everyone then goes into the Milky Way free of charge for an afternoon of fun.

The drivers then leave and return all the passengers back to the rugby club to finish off their day.

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.

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."
