Richard Batten, Managing Director of Burcombe Haulage Ltd, was delighted to accept an invitation from Steve Hoskin Construction Ltd to their charity golf day which was recently held at the St Mellion Golf & Country Club, near Saltash.
The golf day is now a popular and well supported event with Cancer Research benefiting from the proceeds raised in 2013.
We would like to thank Steve Hoskin and all involved at SHC for making the day such an enjoyable and worthwhile occasion.
Burcombe Haulage has recently agreed to a lifetime sponsorship of a jump at the East Cornwall cross-country course on the Port Eliot Estate.
The course has been designed by local international event rider Tamsyn Hutchins and we are delighted to provide support to this local initiative in this way.
The jump, known as The Wishing Well was used at the most recent event held on the 14th September and for good measure we displayed a new 6-wheel tipper as a backdrop.
The East Cornwall cross-country course is well worth a visit on a future event and make sure to keep a look out for our jump!
The Cornwall Truck Show is an annual charity event that was held for the fourth time recently at the Stithians Showground.
This years charities being supported were Children’s Hospice South West and Help for Heroes.
Burcombe Haulage was pleased to attend the event and a mixed fleet of vehicles including Mercedes, Volvo, DAF and even the Peterbilt made the journey west to support this worthy cause.
To see a selection of the vehicles on show go to www.cornwalltruckshow.co.uk and look up the Photo Gallery.
We are pleased to confirm that Burcombe Haulage now has access to a new permitted tip in the Liskeard/Looe area.
We hope to start using this new facility in the next few days.

The 7th annual TPN awards dinner was held on Saturday 11th May at the Hinckley Island Hotel, Leicestershire.
A party from Burcombe Haulage took up the invitation to attend and all were delighted when Burcombe was nominated for two awards being the Delivery Depot of the year and Individual Contribution of the Year.
Proof if it were needed of the value that Burcombe Haulage is adding to the TPN experience.
Following on from our new 8w tipper, we announce that our new 6w DAF tipper is now on the road. Similar to other tippers within the fleet this CF75, 360 hp DAF is fitted with all the specifications necessary to enable it to meet the day to day requirements of life on the road.
