A dedicated group of TC Harrison Ford employees and relatives have successfully completed a fundraising walk in aid of the British Heart Foundation.
The walk, 17 September, took the team from our Burton-Upon-Trent dealership to our Pride Park Ford Superstore.
The 14 mile dealership to dealership walk took just over 4 hours to complete, with a short pit stop for lunch. With the route taking them through the beautiful Staffordshire and Derbyshire scenery, including the canal path pictured below.
The team were also greatly motivated by the number of ‘pips’ from motorists along the way, especially those from loyal TC Harrison customers!
As the walk came to an end, with our Pride Park site in view, which was a very welcoming sight, some participants decided to jog to the finish line!
Thanks to our very generous sponsors, team TCH raised an impressive £1,340 for the British Heart Foundation.
As you may be aware, TC Harrison Ford work very closely with the British Heart Foundation and are proud to provide a public access defibrillator at our Pride Park dealership boundary and facilitate periodic CPR & defibrillator awareness sessions.
When you are next in the Pride Park area, please take the time to familiarise yourself with the defibrillator location (very easy to spot) and make your customers, colleagues, friends and family aware of it’s provision and location.
We hope it never has to be used, but the more people aware of it’s availability and location the better.
Our defibrillator has been in place since February 2016 and to date has been deployed three times by East Midlands Ambulance Service, through giving directions to the 999 caller. So, if you are already aware of the location it will save precious time in a emergency.
