Great Wall Dealership Partake in Hadrian’s Wall Charity Event
Isle of Wight Great Wall dealership F.H. Winter and Sons participated in a sponsored trek across Hadrian’s Wall all in the name of charity.
The Great Wall dealership located in Havenstreet, Isle of Wight, generously donated to the Way Forward Programme, which supports islanders with learning and physical difficulties, as well as autism and mental health problems.
Owner of the dealership Ray Winter commented: “We are the Great Wall Motors dealer for the island and South Coast England, and we thought the challenge to walk Hadrian’s Wall was a perfect way to show our support for an island charity.”
Staff members Krissy Lloyd, Anna Newton, Lee White and Mandy Morritt trained hard in the run up to the expedition, as they were determined to succeed in the challenging 84-mile trek from Cumbria to Carlisle.
Thanks to the Great Wall dealership F.H. Winter and Sons, the funds raised will be used to purchase new equipment for the activity centre at Downside Community and Learning Centre in Newport. The money will also contribute to covering the costs of the team of support staff and volunteers.
