Honouring Connor's Memory

In the spirit of camaraderie and remembrance, Diamond Trucks is embarking on a heartfelt journey to honor the memory of our dear colleague and friend, Connor McGrugan. As we approach the first anniversary of his tragic loss, we are channeling our grief into a meaningful endeavor that reflects the essence of Connor's vibrant spirit.

The Marathon and Climb: On the 5th of May, a dedicated team from Diamond Trucks will be participating in the Belfast Marathon, with Paul Addis taking on the full marathon and Iain Latimer, Mark Stinson, Andrena Thompson, James Jordan, and Arlene McKeag forming a relay team to help reach the finish line. The challenge doesn't stop there – on the 12th of May, our Belfast Diamond Trucks team will ascend Slieve Donard in Newcastle, marking another step in our collective effort to raise awareness for the organizations that do so much for our local communities.

Our Cause: In honor of Connor's memory and the incredible support he received, we have chosen to raise funds for two invaluable organizations: Air Ambulance and REVIVE ICU.

Air Ambulance: On that fateful day, Air Ambulance played a crucial role, providing quick and critical assistance at the scene of Connor's accident.

REVIVE ICU: Throughout Connor's time in the ward, REVIVE ICU provided unwavering support to him and his family, offering compassionate care during a difficult period.

How You Can Help: We invite you to join us in supporting these critical organizations. Your generous contributions will have a significant impact as all donations will be equally split between Air Ambulance and REVIVE ICU. By doing so, you contribute to the continuation of their lifesaving work, ensuring that these organizations can carry on providing essential care to those in need.

Our Community's Strength: In times of remembrance, it is the strength of community that truly shines. We urge you to stand with us and contribute to this cause in honor of Connor's memory. Your kindness and generosity will not only make a positive difference in the lives of others but also ensure that these organizations can sustain their vital missions.

As we lace up our running shoes and prepare for the ascent, Diamond Trucks is not just participating in physical challenges; we are embarking on a journey of remembrance, solidarity, and support. Let us come together as a community, remembering Connor with every step we take, and ensuring that his legacy continues to shine on.

Thank you for standing with us during this time of remembrance.
