To mark the 40th anniversary of the Peter Cooper Motor Group, our Foundation is looking to raise £40,000!

Monies raised will be split across several charities; however, a large percentage will be split between just two charities that are close to our hearts; Cancer Research UK, and JDRF (Juvenile Diabetes Research Foundation).

Peter Cooper have been supporters of Cancer Research ever since Darren's mother was diagnosed in 2009, when she was given a terminal diagnosis with up to 6 months to live. Fortunately, after seeking a second opinion and some ground breaking treatment, she continues her fight today!

JDRF is a type 1 diabetes charity for children and a funder of world-class medical research to cure, prevent and treat type 1 diabetes. Darren's daughter was unfortunately diagnosed with type 1 in 2018, and Darren for one didn't appreciate how it turns a child's life upside down. The injections and monitoring of sugar levels in the blood during everyday life that they have to do is relentless and we want to help speed up the day when type 1 diabetes can be easily controlled.

So what is 'Foot Down out of Lock Down?' It's a 400,000 step challenge that you can do in anything up to 30 days. Committing to this with so much else going on at the moment is going to be a real challenge, but that's the point isn't it!

Thank you SO much for your support, it is very much appreciated and please share our quest with anyone else who may be interested!
