News: PVL Go-Karting

Posted on 28th September 2015

Help us put a BHBPA business at the top of the leaderboard next week.

(and see Wes dressed as SuperMario!)

Please support PVL’s crack team in their effort to win the GDB Charity challenge!

We are looking for a few more sponsors to help us beat our sponsorship target supporting some great local charities. Any amount, no matter how small, will be hugely appreciated.

You can sponsor us here:

In return, our team of SuperMario lookalikes* will drive a Go-Kart the equivalent of Crawley to Le Mans, in 12 hours.

If we exceed our target, our own tame “Mario”, Wes Earp, will wear his Super Mario outfit at one of the next BHBPA events.**

The event:

PVL’s six drivers will participate in the Gatwick Diamond Business Association (GDB) Charity 12hr Go -Kart Challenge on 1st October. Each team will aim to travel in excess of 540km; the equivalent distance from Manor Royal to Le Mans, in Go-Karts, raising funds to be shared amongst these local Sussex charities:
Sussex & Surrey Air Ambulance,

NSPCC, St Catherine’s Hospice, Chestnut Tree House, Sussex Community Foundation, Golden Lion Childrens Trust, CCVS, CHAMS Home Start, The Olive Tree, Rockinghorse, Sussex Wildlife Trust, Young Enterprise, Young Epilepsy West Sussex Mediation Services

About PVL:

We are the largest supplier of reflective safety markings to the UK emergency services, and design, manufacture and install branding and markings for commercial fleets of all sizes throughout the UK and beyond, from our base on the Victoria Business Park.

Preview and ArtDSigns are part of our group through which we continue to provide a full range of high quality web and offline marketing services as well signage, graphic and vehicle markings working with clients locally.

You can follow progress of our challenge on our Facebook page, and sponsor us at our justgiving page at

*Actually, none of our team even has a moustache, let alone blue dungarees or an Italian accent, so they really don’t look or sound like Mario. Sorry.

**The outfit does not include Go-Kart, for clarification!


I hope that you are able to support us and thank you for reading this.

Regards – Nick Broom, Managing Director, PVL UK Ltd

"“Sutton Winson have been members of the BHBPA for around 7 years. We have found it a great way to keep in touch with Burgess Hill businesses and to meet with likeminded people. It’s not just another “networking” group, as it tackles the real issues and gets things done”"

Bruce Millington, Manager
(Sutton Winson Ltd)

"I am delighted to have a long-standing relationship with the BHBPA. Since its foundation the Association has gone from strength to strength and there is no doubt that it has brought huge benefits to its members and the business community as a whole through the partnerships it has formed with the local authorities, Sussex Police and local organisations. It is paramount that Burgess Hill businesses have an effective collective voice."

The Hon Nicholas Soames MP

"As the local hospice for the area, it’s great that we receive so much support from the BHBPA. Last year the members raised an amazing £2150 through activities such as Bake Off and the BHBiz Awards. Each well planned members meeting enables good networking opportunities and speakers that are relevant to the present climate and local issues. We are proud to be members of BHBPA."

Wendy Agate, Community Fund Raising Manager
(St Peter & St James Hospice)

"“We have been members of BHBPA from its inception, and seen the organisation steadily grow and expand into the dynamic entity it is today, bringing positive benefits to all its members.""
