Liskeard tyre retailer is sponsoring the villages Young Farmers’ Club as they complete a charity trek to raise funds for local lifesaving charities.

This weekend, Geoffrey Harris Tyres on Station Road are backing the 30-strong team as they embark on the Smugglers’ Way walk in support of the Looe RNLI Lifeboat Appeal and the Breast Cancer Primrose Ward at Derriford Hospital.

To help the team further, Geoffrey Harris Tyres has enlisted the help of tyre manufacture Goodyear, who have kindly donated caps and polo shirt to wear throughout the walk.

The 36 mile walk will see the walkers start their journey from the north side of Cornwall at Boscastle and finish at the south side in Looe.

Joanne Harris, secretary at Geoffrey Harris Tyres and an advisory member of the Young Farmers Club, said: “Both charities are exceptionally close to the hearts of our community and our club members. The RNLI saves lives on a daily basis and the Primrose Foundation Ward helped a supporter of the Young Farmers’ Club overcome breast cancer. It’s an honour to support a group that provides so much support to the community.”

Goodyear’s PR support manager, Kate Rock, added: “We are pleased we could support Geoffrey Harris Tyres and the Young Farmers Club. It’s important we support local fundraising efforts and life saving organisations such as the RNLI, who Goodyear currently partners to promote the importance of beach safety.”
