Heppelthwaite the Red Van Plumbers are taking part in the Gravity Grand Prix 2019 on the 1st September 2019, Cookham Dean. We’ll prove we’re the quickest plumbers in town.

The Gravity Grand Prix is for a great cause and has done a tremendous job in raising funds for the Thames Valley Air Ambulance. It’s a downhill race driven just by gravity, except for a short push at the start, and it has proved to be very, very popular amongst the 2,000 or so spectators who come to see it and experience the thrill and spectacle of the day.

The event has raised well over £140,000 for the TVAA and other local causes. They would not have been able to do this without the community’s support.
