One of the most respected exhibition firms in travel retail is lending its support to a vital charity for UK soldiers injured in the line of duty – and the industry is being encouraged to assist.
Next month three team members of Derbyshire-based Pentalpha Exhibitions and Interiors – Ian Kirk, Paul Sheldon and Andrew Lancashire – will set off on a gruelling 13-day expedition across Europe in aid of Help for Heroes, which raises funds for wounded troops.
Leaving on 15 June from Littlecote House (the American Air Force base during World War II), they aim to cover a round trip of 3,500 miles, taking in seven countries in a 24-year-old Land Rover Defender. They will follow the route taken by Allied troops during the World Wars, through Normandy, the Somme and Arnhem, finishing in the Bavarian Alps.
The three are aiming to raise money through donations and sponsorship. To assist, either:
*Send cash or a cheque made out to Help for Heroes, to Pentalpha Exhibitions, Unit 8, Butterley Croft Park, Ripley, Derbyshire DE5 3QL, UK
*Or go online to www.bmycharity.com/teampentalpha and donate on the collection page.
