TDSi, the Integrated security solutions manufacturer is pleased to announce details of a closed auction it is running to support the local Challenge 104.8 event. The auction is running until Thursday 30th May, following on from the participation of John Davies, Managing Director of the Poole-based company, in the Challenge 104.8 event last week. John took part in the final marathon, joining four other runners that ran four marathons over two days.
The four runners covered an impressive 104.8 miles each and some team members cycled half the route whilst others, including John Davies in the final part. The event, which was held in support of Wings for Warriors, Bosom Buddies, SPARKS and The Not Forgotten Association, followed a route which started at Goodwood Aerodrome near Chichester in Sussex, taking the runners along the South Coast to the finish point at the Virgin Active Club in Poole, Dorset.
The aim of the Silent Auction is to help the team reach their fundraising target. On offer is a half day on-track Jaguar Land Rover Experience Day and Aston Villa Stadium Tour vouchers. The Jaguar Land Rover Experience Day involves driving the latest Jaguar models and off-track in a number of cars from the Land Rover range. The prize also includes a free day pass to the Heritage Motor Museum, making this a whole day experience, available for a number of dates in June. The Aston Villa Stadium Tour vouchers will need to be redeemed by 31st August 2013. Bidding for all prizes will close at 4pm GMT on Thursday 30th May 2013.
Donations to the Challenge 104.8 is now closed.
Wings for Warriors is a UK registered charity that aims to re-train injured service personnel as commercial pilots. For many soldiers, life outside of the forces can appear scary and uncertain at the best of times. Add a life changing injury to the equation and the future can quickly become a depressing place to be. The charity provides students with the skills to achieve an exciting and challenging future outside of the confines of military life.
Bosom Buddies was founded in June 2011 and aims to inform, educate and potentially help save lives of both men and women by showing how to look for the earliest signs of Breast Cancer and what you should do to act upon them. Its ‘Buddies’ system has been established to help and advise secondary school girls on the signs and symptoms of breast cancer. This support network also provides woman of all ages with someone to turn to if they are worried.
SPARKS was formed in 1991, and aims to improve the quality of life for children and families affected by serious illness or disability. It also seeks ways to better diagnose, treat and prevent these conditions in the future. The charity has pioneered research projects across a wide spectrum of medical conditions including childhood cancers, cerebral palsy, premature birth and spina bifida. In total, the charity has funded over 250 research projects in more than 80 hospitals and universities across the UK. The medical breakthroughs it makes possible make a difference not only across the UK but for thousands of children and families around the world.
The Not Forgotten Association is a unique tri-service charity which provides entertainment and recreation for the serving wounded and the ex-service community with disabilities. In order to fund and deliver its broad programme of activities it relies heavily on the generosity of other charities, grant-giving trusts, commercial organisations, associations, groups and individuals.
