Berkhamsted Raiders CFC & Car Magic – a dream team!
If you live locally to our workshop in Ashley Green, Buckinghamshire you’ve probably heard of Berkhamsted Raiders CFC. Even if you don’t live locally the club is one of the most successful in the country so if you know football, you’ll know Raiders CFC. The team are just gearing up for their annual tour of Bournemouth and we’re proud to have sponsored the sports bottles again this year. These Car Magic bottles will be given to the touring players and their siblings to use during the weekend in Bournemouth – and for many matches to follow!
