Story

Hi everyone! As I'm getting married next year, my ridiculously early stag is positioned awkwardly - it's September this year!  The reason is, that's when the Ramshackle Rally to Munich is, culminating in Oktoberfest!

I wanted to do something a little different, and as we have been going through the motions I've really come to appreciate my fiancé and feel I should give a lot of credit to her parents for raising her to be the kind of person everyone would benefit from having in their lives.

Sadly, I can't thank her mum directly, but I feel I'd like to do a little to support those who supported her and her family.

So I have teamed up with the wonderful James Spiteri and my best man and cousin Shamik Morjaria to get a cheap car and try to get to Germany alive via an extended route featuring some insane roads.

Please donate heartily as you think of us in our rickety car trundling precariously through the twisty roads across Europe.  Think of the journey ahead.  Your donations will be vital to motivating us as we go from checkpoint to checkpoint.

(Click here for more info on the route!)

Thanks in advance from all of us, you guys and gals rock!

UPDATE: Thanks to all the early donaters! It's really great to get the ball rolling.

A new thing now is I will have targets with challenges to complete.

£1,000 - Challenge TBC (post suggestions!)

£2,000 - Chigs in a drindl dress! (as nominated by Kavita)

£3,000 - Challenge TBC (post suggestions if we get this far!!)

Donating through JustGiving is simple, fast and totally secure. Your details are safe with JustGiving – they’ll never sell them on or send unwanted emails. Once you donate, they’ll send your money directly to the charity and make sure Gift Aid is reclaimed on every eligible donation by a UK taxpayer. So it’s the most efficient way to donate - I raise more, whilst saving time and cutting costs for the charity.
