Simply Asset Finance helps raise money for JWT Cancer Research truck

Formed in 2001, JWT Commercial Ltd is a family owned haulage company working across the UK. Since then, they have grown year on year to gain a reputation in terms of reliability, cost control and a customer focused approach. Working with leading global shipping lines and freight forwarders they provide bespoke services that optimise their customers’ supply chains.

JWT Commercial Ltd decided to embark on a fundraising drive for North West Cancer Research (NWCR), a Liverpool-based charity that has raised millions of pounds to help fight cancer. The idea was to persuade businesses to donate to NWRC in return for having their logo on the side of the specially commissioned DAF XF model truck. With the help of a number of businesses including Simply Asset Finance (Simply), it raised more than £5,500 for the charity and their efforts were recognised when they were handed the Corporate Support Award at NWCR’s 70th anniversary award ceremony. Simply was able to get involved in such a great cause thanks to our National Sales Manager, Dave McCormack, who has dealt with JWT Commercial regularly on their journey of expansion.


Mike Randall, Simply CEO, said: “We are delighted to support JWT as partners supporting their exciting growth and to be able to add value to this worthy cause is wonderful.”

Jonathan Whiteley,JWT Director, said: “JWT Commercial are a business expanding rapidly in the North West region and beyond. However, we as a company take our Corporate social responsibility within the community very seriously and our involvement over time with North West Cancer Research is evidence of this. We approached Simply Asset Finance who we see as a key partner in supporting our growth, to help us to support a initiative in sponsoring one of our vehicles advertising North West Cancer research. This vehicle is now driven daily throughout the region with the North West Cancer research logo on display We offer our thanks to Simply Asset Finance whose offer of support was immediate and helped make this happen.”
