Ark Our Partner supporter passes another milestone

Staff at two Ark Cancer Centre Charity Our Partner supporters are celebrating passing another marvellous milestone.

The teams at sister companies Easy As HGV Ltd and HGV Driver Training Centre Ltd have been supporting Ark since 2018.

Colleagues at both firms have been taking part in various events and activities to raise funds for, and awareness of, Ark and its £5million appeal.

The running total has now passed £4,000 - and staff marked the milestone with a fundraising day for Ark, which included a raffle prize draw, dress down day, video games tournament and bake sale.

Easy As HGV Ltd and HGV Driver Training Centre Ltd are family-run businesses based in Fleet, and are two of the largest HGV/LGV training companies in the UK.

General manager Darren Lucas said: “When it was suggested to me about backing Ark Cancer Charity, I saw this as a great opportunity to support a local cause.

“They say ‘charity starts at home’, and being a local company with most of our staff, and a good number of our candidates coming from this area, it seemed the right choice to support a charity that will benefit so many people in the Hampshire area.”

Darren added: “We are delighted to have raised more than £4,000 so far for Ark, and the fundraising day added a further £230 to the coffers.

“The ethos of our businesses has been built around helping and supporting candidates through the HGV/LGV process, making it as easy and simple as possible – giving candidates the confidence to gain a licence, which can help to improve employment prospects, or even just to fulfil a dream of driving big trucks.

"As a community-focused business, we are delighted that we have also been able to help and support Ark, and we look forward to continuing to do so."

The Ark Cancer Centre Charity is proud to have the generous support of the teams at Easy As HGV and HGV Driver Training Centre. They have really made a difference and their ongoing support is much appreciated."
