White Horse Employment get their Heels behind Wheels for Charity
The White Horse Employment ladies were urged to ditch their high heels for steering wheels to take part in the Ladies Driving Challenge, raising over 500 for the Marie Curie Charity.
From Cherry Pickers to Tractors, Double Decker buses to Artic Lorries, Army Jeeps to 4x4s, and Fire Engines to Police Cars, the event now in its 13th year has gone from strength to strength, with all vehicles donated for free by local companies and come with their own drivers.
Held at Bovington Army Camp, Dorset, over 200 ladies took part on the day on 27th September raising over 28,000 for Marie Curie, enough to cover the costs of over one thousand hours of nursing care locally.
Emma Roberts, Support Services Manager commented It is safe to say we have all been touched by the effects of cancer at some point, and Marie Curie is a charity that is close to our hearts, so we are proud to have been involved, I would recommend the day to anyone.
Julie Butcher, Payroll Administrator said it was amazing experience, which I thoroughly enjoyed. The Police Car was amazing, the Artic lorry was scary and the American army truck was hard work, it was good fun, and a really enjoyable day.
