Latics2Amsterdam Raising Money for Prostate Cancer

Fans of Wigan Athletic have just set off on a mammoth bike journey from Wigan to Amsterdam to raise funds and awareness for the fight against prostate cancer.

Here at Westwood, we know how important it is to support both national charities and our local community, so we were pleased to supply them a van to help them on their way.

Prostate Cancer affects around 1 in 8 men in the UK. Of that number, one man dies every hour. That’s over 11,000 men per year. It is one of the biggest killers of men in the UK.

That’s why these brave Latics fans have decided to bike from Wigan to Amsterdam – they’re aiming to raise £50,000 for charity Prostate Cancer UK. They’ve already raised £44,000 – what an amazing achievement!

You can follow along the journey by following @westwoodwigan on Twitter.

 

If you’re looking for a van or car, whether you need to buy, rent or hire, call us today!

Jeff Stelling was at DW stadium yesterday to kick things off.

 

Here is what Antony Clark, Operations Manager at Wigan Athletic had to say about it:

“Latics2Amsterdam are a group of 27 cyclists representing Wigan Athletic, cycling from the DW Stadium to the Amsterdam Arena via Barnsley, Hull and ferry.

 

At the point of setting off, the group had raised over £44,000 toward the fight against prostate cancer, and are the biggest team to have been brought together for the event. The overall aim is to reach the £50,000 mark.

 

Friday sees them making the 70 mile journey from Barnsley to Hull for an overnight ferry to Holland, with them then making another long ride from the port to Amsterdam. The vehicle provided by Wigan Athletic Club Partner Westwood Motor Group is supporting the riders throughout the UK legs of their expedition, and on Sunday will be at Dover to collect the bikes and return them to Wigan.

Testimonials


Rented a few vans of them and they suggested leasing one found the van i wanted at a great price.

Paul Ferraiolo / November 2017

Like to thank all the team at Westwood, Especially Rosie for looking after everything and making it a smooth process, even going the extra mile and sorted stuff out on her day off. Would highly recommend using Westwood and ask for Rosie and you will be in safe hands.

Searched more dealers than you can shake a stick at, and not one came even close to the quality of stock these guys had. From speaking on the phone making an enquiry to meeting in person they were professional and friendly, didn’t push anything, just listened and helped up to my final purchase. Cannot recommend strongly enough.

Great Company
We have purchased and hired vans from Westwood Motor Group over the last several years we have been thoroughly delighted with the service received.
Mike and Steve dealt with our enquiries from start to finish with absolutely no hiccups or disappointments, the personal and high level of service was outstanding.
I would certainly recommend Mike and Steve and the staff at Westwood, and I will certainly use again.
Many Thanks Again

One call to Westwood, problem solved…Chris came to our house, took the van, 1hr later, both tyres fixed…and to top it all, no charge!!! Thanks so much, Julie & Dean

I had a brilliant A class Mercedes on contract hire from Westwood. I decided that I wanted to buy a new car for September Reg and found myself in a situation without a vehicle for a couple of months in between. I took out a flexi hire with them which worked out perfectly. Westwood advertise “vehicle solutions for all” and that certainly seems to be the case they were very attentive, efficient and at brilliant prices with flexibility too.
