    The Buccaneering Badgers Team take on the MONGOL RALLY ! Thats 10,000 miles to Mongolia (and back). Find out more at https://linktr.ee/The_Buccaneering_Badgers

    *******Due to the horrific Russian invasion of Ukraine, unfortunately we are unable to get to Mongolia… ********

    We are now taking part in the Mongol Rally Poles of Inconvenience! The challenge starts in the Orkney Islands and ends in Georgia… to make things more difficult we’ve going to continue on a trip around the stans to see how far East we can get (and back). Only a few more thousand miles… can’t be that difficult?🌵

    We will aim to organise fundraising events in our unique style, ideas we have in mind are +Three Peaks Challenge (climb the highest mountains in England, Scotland and Wales in under 24hrs!) +Tough Mudder +A long bike ride somewhere...

    We aim to be as sustainably conscious possible throughout the voyage, demonstrating that long distance travel can be done in an environmentally conscious and sustainable manner. This will be achieved by carbon offsetting our fuel, using items such as zero waste washing products, aiming to plant a native tree in each country we pass through and surviving as frugally as possible by camping, fishing and foraging for our food. If possible for sections of the journey we will live entirely off the land. When not possible we will reduce our single use plastic consumption and store non recyclables to create a "plastic swear jar" to make us aware of how much plastic we use.

    Which Charities?

    Cool Earth - Charity working alongside rainforest communities to halt deforestation and its impact on climate change. Putting local people, who are uniquely suited to manage and protect the rainforest, first. This is in line with our values of caring for the environment, decreasing our impact, and leading a more sustainable lifestyle. https://www.coolearth.org

    MNDA - The MND Association focuses on improving access to care, research and campaigning for those people living with or affected by Motor Neurone Disease. This charity is close to our hearts as Oscars beloved grandfather died from Motor Neurone Disease in 2016. Motor Neurone is a fatal neurological disease that affects up to 5,000 adults in the UK at any one time and kills five people everyday, a third within two years of diagnosis and half within 14 months. It has no cure. I want to raise funds for expert researchers to change this. Just £75 can fund a researcher for half a day. My target is to fund as many days as possible. It will lead to a new and better understanding of this condition and will bring us closer to a cure. But every donation you give however small will help to make a difference to a person living with MND and their families https://www.mndassociation.org

    The Isles of Scilly Wildlife Trust - is a small local charity that aims to protect and maintain the islands flora and fauna as well as important archeological sites. The islands are home to a wide variety of sea birds and marine mammals which are under human threats. As it is such a small charity each donation, whatever size, has a massive impact on island species. Your donations help to fund important projects such as sea grass protection, wetland restoration and conservation of the many animals that call Scilly home.https://www.ios-wildlifetrust.org.uk/

    Ukraine Humanitarian Appeal - More than 4 million people have fled Ukraine since the conflict began. Leaving behind jobs, belongings and loved ones, they now face an uncertain future. *£30 could provide essential hygiene supplies for three people for one month *£50 could provide blankets for four families *£100 could provide emergency food for two families for one month.https://www.dec.org.uk/appeal/ukraine-humanitarian-appeal

    The initial £500 raised must go to the official Mongol Rally Charity (Cool Earth) anything over this will be split 50/50 between the two other charities.

    We are already raising funds for these charities but to enable us to make this ridiculous journey in our little 1.0 litre 44horsepower 1992 Polo : We need your support!

    We have put together a kit list of all sorts of things we will need to get us to and back from Mongolia! And we are offering YOU the opportunity to help us by donating us some things! In return there are some AWESOME INCENTIVES and ADVERTISING including YOUR NAME/COMPANY ON THE CAR! Gifts from the weird and wonderful countries en route and even a Persian Rug!

    Check out the rewards available and see how you can help!
