Commercial vehicle group Sherwood Truck & Van Ltd has helped a charity car rally to net more than £26,000 for a string of good causes.

The company provided a support vehicle for The Full Monte – a five-day rally featuring exclusive cars like Ferraris, Aston Martins and Bentleys.

Travelling from Eastwell Manor in Kent and ending at the Monte Carlo Bay Hotel, 55 participants in 25 cars drove through France, Switzerland, Italy and Monaco….taking in some of Europe’s most luxurious hotels and Michelin star food.

The event, now in its third year, raised thousands of pounds for The Full Monte Charitable Trust, which supports a range of charities. Since it was founded in 2008, the rally has netted almost £100,000 for charity.

“Sherwood Truck & Van Ltd was proud to provide a support vehicle for The Full Monte, and we are delighted to hear that the event was such a success and raised more than £26,000 for charities,” said Helen Waterfall, managing director of Sherwood Truck & Van, which is based at Blackwell, near Alfreton, and has branches at Lenton in Nottingham, Etruria in Stoke-on-Trent, and Highfield Lane, Sheffield.

Event founder and organiser Alex Hamilton said: “This year was a fantastic success and we hope to continue it for many years to come. We would like to thank Sherwood Truck & Van who very kindly donated a support vehicle for the event.”
