Snows-Sponsored Football Team Kings Worthy FC Smash the Start of the Season

Kings Worthy FC, sponsored by Snows Volvo in Winchester – provider of impeccably designed luxury vehicles – finished its first ever season on a high, thanks to being awarded with the Hampshire FA Adult Charter Standard Club of the Year for 2015-2016.

We first wrote about Kings Worthy FC back in March, when we announced their Easter Sunday Charity Day, hosted in support of Samaritans. Then, the Club was an FA Charter Standard Club, and at the end of the season – thanks to their hard work and commitment – Kings Worthy FC were awarded with the Hampshire FA Adult Charter Standard Club of the Year. Secretary Richard Perkins said, “It is a prestigious accolade, given that we were in our first season under the revived name of Kings Worthy FC. We collected our award at St Mary’s Stadium and subsequently delivered it to our players and supporters at our own awards ceremony on the same evening”.

Since then, the award has visited supporters Snows Volvo in Winchester. Sales Manager David Corps stood proudly with the accolade, congratulating the club on its achievement. The dealership, which has a great range of new and used cars available through a variety of finance options, is proud to offer its support to Club. 

And now, Kings Worthy FC have won their first game of the season. On 4th September, playing on home ground showed its advantages, and Kings Worthy FC beat opponents The Bell 6-1. Congratulations to the team – it’s a fantastic start to the season, and we look forward to hearing about your future successes!

Hundreds Attend Inaugural Hampshire Motability Motor Show

On Thursday 14th April 2016, the first ever Hampshire Motability Motor Show was held by Snows Group, Hendy Group, and Picador Plc at the Ageas Bowl. Conscious of the challenges that some Motability Scheme customers could face, the event aimed to bring a huge variety of vehicles together in one convenient location.

The attraction of thirteen different vehicle brands in the same place couldn’t be missed, and from 9am until 4pm, over 800 people turned up to view a selection of models from BMW, Dacia, Ford, Honda, Kia, Mazda, MINI, Peugeot, Renault, SEAT, Toyota, Vauxhall, and Volvo. Experts from each brand were on hand to provide advice about the adaptations available on the Motability Scheme, to ensure that all drivers and passengers could receive the best possible driving experience. Wheelchair Accessible Vehicles (WAVs) were also available to view, with demonstrations showing how to utilise available equipment.

Users of the Motability Scheme can benefit from a brand new vehicle every three years (five years for WAVs), as well as a fantastic range of other benefits including full breakdown assistance; insurance; servicing; tyre replacement; two named drivers on the vehicle, and more.  The event saw both longstanding and new users of the Motability Scheme attend, with representatives on hand to assist throughout the day. If you’d like any further information about whether you might be eligible for the Motability Scheme, please visit

Snows Group, Hendy Group, and Picador Plc extend their thanks to all who attended the inaugural Hampshire Motability Motor Show, and look forward to seeing everyone again for test drives!
