BCA Plaque

BCA Cycle Team receive recognition plaque from Action for A-T

BCA have been bringing together buyers and sellers for nearly 70 years. Starting in 1946 as Southern Counties Car Auctions, they were one of the first companies to let people across the UK buy and sell a wide range of cars at auction, from budget runarounds to exotic imports.

BCA supported Action for A-T in 2015 by entering a team of cyclists into the Prudential Ride 100 event in London. The team all managed to complete the 100 mile closed road circuit and raised in excess of £8,000 for Action for A-T in the process. Pictured are Nat Gale, Tom Clark, Craig Purvey and Elaine Roberts receiving their well-deserved recognition plaque from Action for A-T Chief Executive, Sean Kelly. 

On receiving the plaque, Elaine Roberts explained “BCA are very proud to receive this recognition plaque and were delighted to have raised such a substantial amount for Action for A-T.  The funds will be committed to a research project in the near future in order to help find a cure or therapy for the rare neuro degenerative condition Ataxia Telangiectasia”.

In addition to the names mentioned above, Action for A-T would like to thank Simon Doyle, Caroline Geddes, Philip Smith, Aaron Collett, Kevin Purvey, Ashley Graham, Geoff Albutt, Steve Moss and Michael Craig for joining the BCA/Action for A-T team and raising vital funds for medical research.

There are lots of keen cyclists at BCA and entering a team into a cycle event like the Prudential Ride 100 is a great way for businesses to support Action for A-T and at the same time build stronger relationships between colleagues and customers.
