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

"This association was started with a lot of effort from a few local businessmen and has proved to be a very powerful and useful tool for our business. The BHBPA has influence at the top level; when action is needed, the BHBPA gets it done. We are kept in touch with all that is happening on our doorstep and will often act because of what is published in the weekly emails / newsletters."

"The BHBPA is a fantastic hub for our business community to get together and catch up, discuss important local issues and connect new and interesting enterprises."

Oliver Lashley , Director
(Pure Storm Digital Services )

"“I can’t speak highly enough of the BHBPA. As a small local business we feel very much part of a community and thoroughly enjoy the annual exhibition and meetings throughout the year. Over the years we have built fantastic working relationships with many BHBPA members and every meeting and event offers us opportunities to work with more. This is networking at its best! ” "

Judi Arditi, Director
(Travail Employment Group)

"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."
