With our partners, Wigan Athletic
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.

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.

Great service 5 star rating Always do and deliver what they say Been using this firm for over 3 years now All the staff make u feel like a friend more then a customer highly recommend Westwood motor group
I needed to hire a car for a week and remembered the excellent service I had from Westwood a couple of years ago when I hired a van from them to move house. The only thing that’s changed since then is the service is even better. From my initial phone call to dropping the vehicle off the service was smooth, professional and warmly helpful.
I would recommend Westwood to anyone looking to rent a van or car. Great service at a very competitive price all done with a smile. I’ve followed my advice and booked a car for a future trip.
Very helpful and do go out the way to sort you the best deals
Needed a van for one day to move furniture and a run to the tip; got swift professional service, and a fully specced van with all convenience features, and cheaper than any local rival. Highly recommended by this happy customer. Will use again.
Amazing service with the teams here , especially Emma . Defo 5 star company on all levels
I am so impressed with the car and the customer service from Kai Khamnonchan was amazing. She was able to deliver the vehicle to me and she was extremely helpful and professional in sorting the right car for my needs at a great price. I would throughly recommend Westwood motor group and Kai to all my friends and colleagues and happily give them a #5star review ⭐️👏
