Vitality Blast Partner in special charity challenge

Later this month one of our main partners will be taking part in a very special charity challenge.

Nick Vivian, Head of Marketing at Appleby Westward Group Ltd, the regional distribution company servicing SPAR stores throughout the South West, will be involved in the Pompeii or Bust Banger Rally Challenge,

The event, which begins on September 28th and is raising funds for a number of charities, involves driving a car that costs £500 or less from St Austell in Cornwall to Pompeii in southern Italy. Along the way all the competitors will also have the chance to compete in various challenges.

Ahead of the challenge, Nick revealed his car choice. “I’ve bought a 17-year-old Mini as my banger to attempt to complete the event,” he said. “I’m delighted that Golden Wonder have agreed to sponsor the car and it is currently getting a makeover with their branding.

“For a bit of fun, I’ve also been asking people for their favourite one-line film quotes so that I can include them as part of the design on the roof of the car!

“I’m aiming to raise £2500 for Marie Curie Cancer Care, so all donations are welcome! Marie Curie is a fantastic Charity providing expert care, guidance and support to people living with a terminal illness. They do a great job, and you can donate via my Just Giving page.”

Somerset County Cricket Club signed a three-year agreement with Appleby Westward in January of this year which saw them become the Club’s Official Vitality Blast Main Partner. As part of the arrangement the SPAR logo features prominently on the front of Somerset’s Vitality Blast shirt.
