Rebecca Sunderland from M&S said: "It was great that RDCT was able to support us in the fundraising, a real team effort from both M&S and RDCT."

RDCT's manager David Wherrell thanked everyone involved: "Six of our people, both staff and volunteers, gave up their time to help with this terrific event and we are extremely grateful to the M&S staff for arranging it all. We are always looking for more volunteer drivers and we hope more people will know about us as a result."
