Fleet Alliance is new transport partner for Maggie’s Monster Bike and Hike
Maggie's Monster Bike and Hike has raised over £4 million in the last six years for cancer care homes through the fund-raising efforts of almost 5,000 participants in the gruelling "monster" 30-mile cycle ride and 43-mile hike in the Highlands of Scotland.
Earlier this year, a team of eight hardy souls from the Fleet Alliance head office in Glasgow took on the challenge with great success – raising £13,000 for Maggie's Cancer Caring Centres, the firm's nominated charity, due to support from fleet clients, suppliers, staff and family members.
Now Fleet Alliance is to take part in next year's event and has also said that it will take care of the transport.
The contract hire and fleet management specialist will provide an assorted fleet of vehicles including people carriers for Maggie's staff and volunteers, 4×4 vehicles for teams of off-road marshals, road cars for route marshals and medics and mini-buses for participants.
Gemma McDonald, corporate partnership manager at Maggie's Cancer Caring Centres, said: 'The Monster Bike and Hike plays a vital role in opening the doors of Maggie's Centres and we are thrilled that next year's event will have the support of Fleet Alliance as transport partner, which should help us to make this the best Monster yet.'
