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.

First class service from Leon and Emma! Used vans from other providers in Wigan before and paid three times the price. Cannot thank them enough for an easy, efficient and timely service. Leon ensured I had the right van for the job by ensuring it would be long enough. Emma made sure everything was ready to go when I came to collect. I would never mess about again trying to source a van from friends for any jobs that need doing – £45 for a full days hire is amazing! Thanks again guys. Will defo be recommending you to everyone. Already passed your details onto friends and family!

Purchased a van at the beginning of Jan, took my old van as part ex, absolutely no problems and Steve even sorted me out with ladder bars for it. Would definitely recommend to anybody looking for a new van, Westwood are a longstanding business, so you know they will still be there if you do have any problems in the future, and they also offer half price servicing.
