Employees from Keyline will be hitting the right note as they head across Europe to raise money for the charity.
The specialist supplier of heavy building materials, civils and drainage solutions has organised a musicals themed car rally to Lake Como in Italy.
Twenty-four cars made up of teams from Keyline’s staff, along with its suppliers and customers, have chosen themes which include Chicago, We Will Rock You and Grease. The rally starts on Wednesday 24th June from Northfleet. After crossing the English Channel at Dover, the cars will head through France before trekking all the way towards the beautiful Lake Como for the final curtain call.
Kieran Griffin, Managing Director of Keyline, said: “Keyline has organised an annual car rally to different destinations across Europe since 2010 and this promises to be the best yet. During the last five years we have raised an incredible £1 Million for Prostate Cancer UK. Everybody knows someone, whether a family member or friend, who has been affected by cancer, so we look forward to adding to that total as we head to Lake Como.”
Former England international and supporter of the charity, Luther Blissett, will also be joining the fundraisers for the special event. Luther said: “Having taken part in the Keyline Rally last year, I can’t wait to get behind the wheel again! The Rally is a great way to help raise vital funds for Prostate Cancer UK and help them continue to support men and their families affected by the disease.
“It is also about awareness raising and I urge all men to know their risks of prostate cancer – as a Black man I know I have a one in four chance of developing the disease. I look forward to joining Keyline and their customers at the start line!”
Speaking ahead of the rally, Mark Bishop, Director of Fundraising, said: “Keyline’s continuing commitment and support to the charity has seen them raise a phenomenal amount of money over the last few years, through fundraising events such as the Rally. This year, the Keyline Rally is set to be another fun filled event and we are looking forward to be a part of it.
“By doing this, the customers and staff at Keyline are joining Men United and helping to make a real difference in furthering the fight against prostate cancer.”
