One of the UK's fastest growing independent driver recruitment companies has 'got on its bike' to help raise vital funds for road transport development in Zambia.
Transline Resource, which provides over 500 professionally assessed HGV drivers to some of Britain's largest retail and logistics companies, is supporting one of its client companies, Wincanton, in the 'Cycle Zambia Challenge' - a grueling 10 day charity bike ride over 260 miles of dusty, inhospitable African terrain.
Transline Resource currently supplies Wincanton at over 30 UK locations prompting it to donate 1000 to help seven Wincanton employees - dubbed the 'Pirates of the Zambian' - reach a 30,000 target they have set themselves for the ambitious charity ride.
Organised by Transaid a charity formed by the UK transport industry to improve the way transport is managed in the developing world the Cycle Zambia Challenges end goal is to raise a total of 100,000 to help improve road safety for the countrys 12 million inhabitants.
Director of Transline Resource, Paul Beasley, said: When we heard about the challenge the Wincanton team had set themselves we were only too willing to help out. The cause is a fantastic one and anyone we work with who is willing to put themselves through ten days of cycling in the baking heat to help those less fortunate deserves our full support.
