Harlem Globetrotters

About the last thing I did at First was to agree our UK sponsorship of the 9-day tour of the Harlem Globetrotters. In the USA they are transported by Greyhound so we thought similarly so they should be here in UK.

They are doing a nine-city tour which started on Sunday in Manchester and I was glad to be there with my boys. Also with us on this tour are families from the local operating companies and the customers who have won the local competitions. We met the players backstage, the boys then played 'musical chairs' in front of 4000 people and of course the team went on to beat the Washington Generals as they have done for many years.

Greyhound is of course transporting the team and their entourage from city to city and this is being organised out of Swansea where Greyhound maintains the service to Cardiff. Like their US counterparts out Greyhound coaches are high-tech with wifi and laptop power plus extra legroom. Good if you are nearly 7' tall!

The iconic Greyhound brand of course is ideal for this particular venture with these extraordinary basketball players. Try and see them in a city near you!
