Garador Supports Dorset and Somerset Air Ambulance!

Published:  01 June, 2016

Leading UK garage door manufacturer, Garador, recently provided three of their lorries to help deliver over 500 bikes to their riders so they could take part in the Coast to Coast charity bike ride. Garador normally uses the lorry fleet to deliver a range of garage doors.

It was all part of a major fund raising activity for the Dorset and Somerset Air Ambulance, and involved some energetic pedalling over 54 miles from the north coast of Somerset to the south coast of Dorset. Over £54,000 was raised for the Dorset and Somerset Air Ambulance as part of the charity cycle ride.

Garador’s Simon Hipgrave commented “Ensuring all the cyclists and their bikes were at the right place at the right time was vital. We were more than willing to give a hand and our modern fleet of well kitted out trucks was easily adapted so all the bikes could be transported safely.

Bill Sivewright, Chief Executive Officer of the Dorset and Somerset Air Ambulance, said: ‘They were amazed by the support of the communities on the route and the numbers who turned out to support the riders’.
