The Briggs-branded Porsche Cayman took centre stage when we announced our latest charity adventure at Autosport International last weekend. As part of our commitment to ongoing charity support we are sponsoring a team in the 2016 Rally for Heroes road trip. Rally for Heroes aims to give something back to members of the Armed Forces once they return from operations, and those who have previously served with the military. It fundraises for military charities by organising driving events across the UK and Europe and the Rally for Heroes road trip is its signature event. Our support for Rally for Heroes is another initiative in our longstanding partnership with the Armed Forces through our Defence Logistic Support division, which provides global equipment supply and support to the Ministry of Defence. The nine-day Rally for Heroes road trip will start from HMS Victory in Portsmouth on August 5. More than 100 people are taking part and the aim is to drive five miles for every fallen service person since the start of the Afghanistan conflict and raise £100,000 in aid of SSAFA. SSAFA is the oldest UK national military charity and provides practical, emotional and financial support to Regulars and Reserves in the Royal Navy, British Army and RAF, as well as ex-servicemen and women and their families. All participants in the Rally for Heroes road trip have to raise at least £1500 per car and 100% of the sponsorship goes to charity. To date Rally for Heroes has raised in excess of £250,000 for military charities, including Help for Heroes, SSAFA and the Royal British Legion.
