Crane veterans drive for charity

13. June 2017 | Comments (1)

Two UK Crane Industry Veterans – Malcom Davies of Davies Crane Hire and Roger Miles of Roger Miles Plant Sales - are taking part in the XK Jaguar Round Britain Coastal Drive to raise money for the Prostate Cancer UK charity.

The drive is organised by Philip Porter who founded The Jaguar XK Club and has received treatment for the disease. Miles nephew Kevin Megson operations director at T.E.I. in Wakefield, died from the prostate cancer two months ago. He regularly rented in cranes at power stations and refineries across the country. In the 10 years he battled with the cancer he raised £100,000 for the charity and as Yorkshire ambassador for Prostate Cancer UK, he welcomed drivers when they visited Bridlington on the first ever tour last year which raised £60,000.

The drive took participants to Exeter where they depart this morning for Penzance in Cornwall you can learn more by clicking on www.roundbritaincoastaldrive.co.uk

Miles and Davies said: “If you have a crane depot near the coast you could see us out on the drive and rattling our tins, or you can donate to this worthwhile cause by going to www.justgiving.com/fundraising/Roger-Miles www.justgiving.com/fundraising/Malcolm-Davies3
