Movember – Wotsat all about………..
Movember……Its all about supporting the fight against prostate cancer, Raising the awareness on a global scale. The campaign involves guys doing what they do best – nothing – well nothing as regards to shaving, The idea is to see who has the wackiest moustaches at the end of Movember, So they have a month to show some growth….. Obtaining sponsorship along the way….in aid of a great cause.
The guys from the Slaters Arms in Bradley have got together and Geordie Jim Thompsons boys have set off at a blistering pace having raised some £3000 to date. In fact they are in the top 200 fundraisers, (no176 this morning). Visit Jims facebook page and see if you can support him. Euro-Tran will donate a prize for the wackiest moustache, and bearing in mind this months prize on our website is a Kindle – we will now donate a second kindle to Geordie Jims campaign – Good Luck lads…..should be some good photos at the end of Movember…..On December the 5th a great night is planned at the Slaters Arms in Bradley when all the results of the lads efforts will be on show. There will be an auction of some 15 prizes donated by locals, and local businesses. A band and lots of banter mean a good night will be had by all. If you can support Jims efforts please do so – EVERY £1 HELPS, So if you want to get into the mood for Christmas early just pop along to the Slaters for a great night out..

Following on from their success in the 2010 Triangle report APC have this year come out tops in 14 of the fifteen categories. A fantastic achievement. In the category we always fail to achieve on BRAND AWARENESS, We again figured mid table and unless we are in the position to maybe sponsor formula one, its highly likely we will continue to struggle in that category. Remarkably in the ‘Loyalty Index’ Which measures the carriers ability to retain business only three carriers achieved over 50% The average being 32.6%. APC ACHIEVED A MASSIVE 81.7% SOME 24% MORE THAN THEIR NEAREST RIVAL. We are thrilled with the results and thank all our customers for their support.
If you want to know more about the survey its available for – wait for it £24,300………Alternatively ask our Ron Roberts to show you the results.
We hope Sharon enjoys the camera. A new competition will be launched soon . The prize will be a ‘ Kindle ‘. To enter just visit www.euro-tran.co.uk and you will find the competition on the homepage. Thank You.
On the face of it, Goods inadequately secured, Then the Carrier places a heavy box on top. A typical case of of how goods should not be despatched, nor how they should be handled – However in this case all is not what it seems. This is a piece of sculpture. The ancient marble quarries on the Greek island of Paros have since the times of Hector and Ullysses provided the basis of many fine works. This piece is part of an exhibition proving these ancient skills are not lost. Its all cut from Marble. Its so good that even the pallet feels like wood. Euro-Trans Dave and Chris Howson spotted the piece while staying at their holiday home on the island – ‘It just looked so apt’ Dave reported…….. What do you think ? This particular piece is by Andreas Lolis.
