Evans Transport charity boxing Cardiac Risk in the Young 5

We would like to congratulate Lyon Franks with his win over opponent Paul Ebsworthy on Saturday nights charity boxing match.

Lyon who works in the commercial workshop as our inhouse tyre fitter decided to get involved in CRY’s (Cardiac Risk in the Young) fight night to raise money for a charity who focus on preventing sudden deaths in the young through awareness screening and research, as well as supporting affected families.

He has had to wait over a year for his opportunity with COVID preventing the event from running.

We were fortunate to sponsor Lyon's bout which resulted in a victory for him after the 1st round.

Well done to both fighters and on raising money for a well deserved charity.

Laura's Marathon Effort!

Evans Transport Laura London Marathon 2019

Sunday April 28th was the day when all the winter training and fundraising came together and Laura took on a challenge most of us would run away from.

As you will probably know already Mum, Sue, has been battling breast cancer and has been supported by Breast Cancer Care along the way. As a thank you for all their care and advice Laura decided to take part in the Virgin Money London Marathon 2019 to raise much needed funds for such a vital service.

With lots of supporters cheering her on Laura completed the marathon in 5 hours 44 minutes but she actually managed to run further than most completing 31 miles! Talk about making the most of your day!

After collecting her precious medal she was reunited with her family and supporters to enjoy a well earned glass of prosecco.

At the time of writing this Lauras Just Giving page total stands at a massive £11,464.00. This has only been possible because of the support of many friends and family and she's incredibly grateful to you all.

London Marathon 2019 for Breast Cancer Care

breast cancer care

Our very own Laura Evans will be running The London Marathon 2019 for the Breast Cancer Care Charity. Laura has been inspired by her mother Sue's fight against Breast Cancer and they really appreciate the support given to her by this amazing charity.

Laura writes:

I have decided to run the London Marathon 2019 for my Mum. I am not a ‘natural’ runner but I wanted to give something back to Breast Cancer Care.

2018, for our family, has not been an easy year. In June, my amazingly strong mum found a lump in her breast, this was a massive shock to the whole family and was a struggle for us all to get our heads around. After copious trips to Plymouth for test after test she was diagnosed with Grade 2 Breast Cancer. In July, shortly after her 50th birthday, she underwent surgery to have the lump removed along with other procedures. Soon after the operation we learnt the cancer had spread to the lymph nodes and she would need to have Chemotherapy followed by Radiology. She is currently undergoing chemotherapy and its been tough on us all, especially her.

Breast Cancer Care have been amazing and supportive from the start. They’ve not only been there for my mum but have supported the whole family. They dedicate so much to those families going through similar situations to my mum. I am running the marathon to raise as much as I can for this amazing charity so that they can continue to help and support other people who need it!

Devon Air Ambulance

Evanstransport air ambulance 02

We have recently applied this eye catching vinyl to our smooth sided bulk tipping trailer supporting the Devon Air Ambulance charity. It will hopefully help raise awareness for the charity, by traveling around the South West of England and encouraging people to donate.

The aim is "to relieve sickness and injury in and around the county of Devon through provision of an emergency Air Ambulance Service."

Every year the Charity needs to raise £5.5 million to run the service.  In addition, we need to raise around £1m more to build capital funds in order to ensure we can replace our aircraft after ten years’ service and to meet significant maintenance and repair costs plus ambitious plans to extend our operating hours.

Keep a look out for this trailer and donate if you can.
