Welco Sponsors Lions Club 48th Annual Demolition Derby

Welco Expediting Ltd. is pleased to announce it will be the title sponsor for the 48th Annual Fernie Lions Club Demolition Derby 🚙💥 taking place in Fernie, British Columbia, September 4, 2022.

Over the years the annual derby has raised upwards of $500,000 providing much needed and critical support to sick children, seniors, the disabled, families in need and youth sports in the Elk Valley region.

In addition to the sponsorship, Welco sold its beloved demolition derby car (to be entered locally) with all proceeds going to further support the Fernie Lions Club charitable efforts.

“We are proud to support the communities we work and live in,” said Michael Stark, Sales Director, Welco. “British Columbia and the Elk Valley have long community and business ties with Welco and provide valuable natural resources across Canada and around the world.
