    Hello there! Thanks for taking the time to visit my just giving page.

    What's happening?

    My name is Ross Christie and I am from Northern Ireland. On the 30th June I am going to embark on a 4000+ mile round trip from Edinburgh to Rome with three of my close friends. The catch is we are driving there in cars which cost less than £500 (which you can see pictured above). This adventure will test our budget cars to the limit as we tackle some of the most demanding roads in Europe such as the French alps the congested streets of Paris and Rome. Breakdowns will be highly likely along the way in our 1997 Saab and 2002 Volvo.

    We need your help !

    The banger rally which we are participating in is an annual event called 'Rust 2 Rome.' We will be working alongside other teams to make it to the colosseum in Rome together. I would like to take this opportunity to try and raise money for work which is very close to my heart. Husband and wife missionaries Norman and Linda Patterson (who also come from Northern Ireland) do a tremendous work for those living in slum conditions in the poorest parts of Romania providing food, education, housing and importantly the Gospel to disadvantaged children and their families. Last year I had the opportunity to travel to Romania with a team from my church and witnessed the work which Norman and Linda do first hand. I have a deep respect for their dedication to their on-going work which changes so many lives for the better and this is why I have chosen to support their work. I have included some photographs of my time with Norman and Linda last year to give you an insight into the vital work which is being carried out.

    Thank you once again for taking the time to visit, 100% of all money raised will help to further the work of Norman and Linda Patterson in Romania.

    Thank you for your support.
