Technicians charity survival challenge

Four Cardiff technicians will take on a challenging 10k assault course for a children’s hospital and a cancer charity.

The car technicians from Sinclair Volkswagen are hoping to raise over £1,000 for the Noah’s Ark Appeal and Pancreatiic Cancer Research Fund and have their employees financial support to help boost their fundraising efforts.

The aptly named ‘Sinclair Workshop Warriors’ will compete in the Men’s Health Survival of the Fittest event taking place on 7th October.

The team includes Matt Cockrell, Chris Plews, Paul Cleghorn and Steve Calnan, all from Cardiff and will see the Volkswagen men tackle a series of challenges including hay bale, rope and slippery walls, army assault obstacles, monkey bars, inflatable obstructions and water features.

Speaking of challenge Steve, who has worked on Volkswagen vehicles for the past 30 years, believes it will be a tough but a fun event.

He said: “As car technicians we are used to being on your feet all day and crawling underneath vehicles but we expect this event will certainly stretch our fittest levels.

“The charities we have chosen are close to our hearts and we want to raise as much as we can for them so we were delighted when our employer committed to giving us £500.”

Sinclair Volkswagen brand manager, Richard Seaward, said: “We are delighted to get behind our lads and wish them lots of luck.”
