The team cycled hard and our two days of cycling saw us rack up an incredible 721.6 miles, which is nearly 2.5x our original goal. Looks like we're going to have to up the ante next time! It was great to see how much support the team received, which is testament to just how worthwhile Mind is, and how far-reaching their support is to those experiencing Mental Health issues. We're pleased to announce we've hit the £1500 fundraising mark, far more than we ever thought possible. Thank you all for your support. Here's to the next challenge!
In aid of World Mental Health Day on Thursday 10th October, the Head Office Team have taken on the challenge of cycling the distance between all Vindis Group dealerships, totalling 290.45 miles. That's 20 stops, 2 days and a whole heap of willing participants! Whilst we would love to do this in practice, we wanted to make the event as inclusive (and safe) as possible and so we’ll be doing the entire route, from the confines of Huntingdon Volkswagen on 2 exercise bikes (gulp.)
You may or may not have heard about the benefits that exercise has on the mind; not only does it give you a big old dose of endorphins (your happy hormones), you will come away feeling wide awake and full of energy. Good for the mind and body, what better way to honour the cause and our many wonderful sites?
Whilst our primary cause for doing such an event is to raise awareness, we are hoping to raise as much money as possible for our chosen charity, Mind, whose goal is to ensure all those experiencing mental health problems receive support and respect. It's an ethos that we actively seek to promote within the working environment, every day.
We are raising money for this incredible charity on our Just Giving page, and so if you would like to support our team and help those suffering with mental ill health, you can do so by visiting the link below.
A video of our efforts will be released following the event, with special appearances from our management teams, as we 'virtually' pass their dealerships.
Thank you for your support!

All vehicles that are sold by the Vindis Group are subject to an administrative / preparation fee of £90 inc VAT. For new vehicles this charge covers the cost of mechanically preparing the vehicle for delivery, the administration of new ownership documentation and final preparation for customer handover.
For used vehicles, this charge covers a full history and provenance check prior to being advertised for sale ensuring no financial risk or charge has been levied against the vehicle, that the vehicle has never been written off or stolen and final preparation for customer handover.
Vindis Group believe this level of preparation is crucial in ensuring we provide the highest level of customer satisfaction, for which the Vindis Group is renowned for.
The Vindis Group is delighted to launch its new online buying platform; providing you with an exciting and innovative digital experience and giving you genuine real-time buy-it-now ability across all new and used vehicles; with all our stock vehicles (and factory orders) available to buy online and from the comfort of your own home.
Our vehicle search function now provides the facility to search across all brands simultaneously, or to refine your search based on make, model, overall cash price or monthly payment. And once you’ve found your perfect vehicle, you can enquire on it, reserve it or even go through our brand new online purchase process - covering everything from part-exchange valuation to finance quotation - allowing you the full freedom and transparency of buying from the comfort of your own home.
Don’t worry, if you don’t feel comfortable purchasing online, or if you stop at any point in the journey, we can pick it up with you and help to guide you in whichever way you wish; either remotely through our digital sales team, or in any one of our Vindis Group retailers.
With major new leaps in technology can always come some challenges, and as this is a very new platform (for both Vindis and the industry) we would really appreciate your feedback (and occasionally patience) whilst we go though a short-term process of ironing out any issues with this BETA version.
We look forward to hearing from you, and hope you enjoy your online journey.
