The team at Volkswagen Commercial Vehicles in Sheffield were delighted to see regular customers, John Hemmingham, James Holmes, Steve Wood and Chris Hancock (or to be more specific, the members of the official England Band!) drop by the dealership on Tuesday.
"They have been VW CV customers for around 18 months now, and it’s always a pleasure to have them pop in to see us." commented Steve Kirby, Aftersales Manager at VW CV Sheffield.
The band first started playing for Sheffield Wednesday before they were asked in 1996 to start playing at England matches too, and have only missed three England friendly’s since they started! Fun Fact: The band has now played for England more times than Beckham, Charlton, Moore and Shilton.
As a self/charity-funded band, they are involved in a lot of charity work so VW CV wanted to give something back and as a gesture of goodwill offered to check over their van for free on this occasion.
The band will now be in France for the Euro’s 2016, which start on Friday 10th June at 8pm on ITV.
