PK Motors is delighted to be official car sponsor of Allendale Cricket Club. We are a local business and pleased to announce our support for such a highly regarded and successful community cricket club.
We are enjoying exciting times at PK Motors and since opening our doors nearly three years ago we have quickly established ourselves as a successful and reputable motor retailer based in the North East and across the UK.
Due to overwhelming demand and popularity we have recently invested in a new indoor car showroom which now display up to 35 quality used and nearly new cars. All our vehicles now offer a minimum 12 month warranty endorsed by Auto Centre including 12 months MOT and free from advisories.
We pride ourselves in providing the highest levels of customer service and value-for-money and have a huge passion and desire to find the best possible car for your personal needs and most importantly your budget.
GOLFERS from across the North East braved the elements to tee off for charity at a special fundraising event – and smashed their £3,000 target.
Around 140 players took part in the PK Motors Golf Day at Matfen Hall Hotel’s 27-hole golf course – and raised money for the Lily Foundation, a national charity set up to support children and families affected by Mitochondrial Disease
The disease prevents the body’s cells from producing sufficient energy and can lead to seizures, breathing difficulties, muscle weakness, diabetes and fatigue.
Teams teed off at timed starts throughout the day with prizes for the longest drive, beat the pro and nearest the pin and play was followed by a barbecue along with entertainment from a close-up magician.
Guests then bid for a variety of auction prizes, including a week’s holiday for four within a golf complex at the Costa del Sol, a Euro ’96 England shirt signed by Alan Shearer, a cricket bat signed by the Durham County Cricket Club team, a rugby ball signed by the Newcastle Falcons and a Sunderland AFC shirt signed by Niall Quinn and Kevin Phillips.
Paul Keighley, director of Swalwell-based PK Motors, which organised the event, said: “It was a fantastic day from start to finish, despite the weather and I am very grateful to all those who took part.
“Matfen Hall’s golf course is always a pleasure to play and not only did our teams enjoy a great round of golf but they raised a large sum of money for this worthwhile cause.”

Young cricket enthusiasts at Northumberland and Tyneside Cricket club, Swalwell have been bowled over by the generosity of local car dealer PK Motors after they were presented with new sweatshirts as part of a new sponsorship deal.
The new partnership with PK Motors will help Swalwell ‘drive’ forward on all levels, as a leading local cricket club, and ensures valuable funding throughout the 2015 championship campaign.
Paul, Managing Director, said “I live locally and recently set up PK Motors and wanted to associate my business with the people in the local community and grass roots sport at all levels.
“Swalwell cricket club is a fantastic example of this and is steeped in tradition, has a fantastic reputation throughout the region and is a great example of a well run and successful club.
“I’m honoured to have my company name emblazoned on their shirts and hopefully with continued support from PK Motors, they will go on to achieve even greater success this season and well into the future.”
Ross Whitfield, Under 11’s Head Coach, Swalwell CC, said, “This sponsorship deal ensures that all the Juniors, second team and first team players will also be kitted out in the new kit for the season ahead.
“All the kids and families are all delighted with this generous support from PK Motors and hopefully this will be the start of a long association between the two organisations.”
Mark Jones, Player Manager of Newcastle Homeless and Recovery Football team, who play in the Newcastle Corinthians league….was so desperate to get some new kit and sponsor for his hard-up football team, he devised a plan to challenge a local businessman in Swalwell, Newcastle Upon Tyne… to a penalty shoot out challenge.
If he scored five penalty spot kicks out of five past the owner of PK Motors, businessman and feline goalkeeper, Paul Keighley formerly nicknamed the cat…PK Motors would agree to pay for the new kit and automatically qualify to be club sponsors.
What could be simpler. However in a twist in events, as fans and locals gathered to see the hyped up event…Mark missed the first penalty…. which shaved the bar and thus losing the shoot out challenge on the first strike of the ball !
A devastated Mark was inconsolable and held his head in his hands..but then couldn’t believe his luck when PK Motors as a gesture of goodwill, said they would pay for the shirts for his beloved team anyway !
Mark said, “I couldn’t believe it. I was so confident I would win the challenge, although I had had a few beers at the time of making the challenge, and had been practising all week. I now know how geordie legend Chris Waddle must have felt when he skied that one for England against Germany…perhaps I’ll end up getting Pizza Hut as my next sponsor.
“However I couldn’t believe it when Paul then agreed to pay for the new kit anyway, so everything was truly worthwhile and everyone at the Homeless Recovery Team can now raise a glass to PK Motors for our new kit.”
Managing Director of PK Motors, Paul Keighley, said “It was all a bit of fun and when he made the challenge I knew he’d given himself a tall order…even though my best goal keeping days are well and truly behind me. Whilst I was determined to save at least one penalty out of the five, I couldn’t believe it when he blasted his first spot kick past the upright.”
“It was all for a good cause to help the Homeless aand Recovery football team and PK Motors is a local business and I felt it was only right that we made the gesture to buy the shirts, which will now proudly carry our company name on them.”
