We are going the extra mile here at the Peter Cooper Motor Group in support of ‘Iron Fran’ Benali’s ultra-triathlon across the UK.
Across the group, staff at the Southampton, Hedge End, Portsmouth and Chichester showrooms are being pledged money for rowing, riding and running on exercise machines in the showrooms, covering hundreds of miles during Friday 3rd May.
We are hoping to raise well over £20,000 for IronFran and Cancer Research, which will also include the proceeds of a charity golf event at Goodwood in June.
“Staff overwhelmingly wanted to help raise money for Franny’s amazing campaign and we felt this was the best way to do it. Engaging as many people as possible to get a small taste of Fran’s commitment throughout this week gives us an idea of how incredible his efforts are,” said Darren Cooper, Managing Director of Peter Cooper Group.
“Fran is a good friend and we wanted to help him reach his target of £1m. Knowing how hard it’s been for him this week and what he’s been going through in the water and on the road has given us all inspiration to go the extra mile today. We wish him all the luck to finish in style.”
