Thanks for taking the time to visit my JustGiving page.
On the 21st July I head off to compete in the Crumball Rally with my mate and co-driver Si Jenner and 90 other teams. The aim is to drive from Birmingham to Nice via Bologne, Besancon and Turin by the 24th July. So what's the catch?
You have to do it in a banger costing no more than £250 plus the cost of getting it road worthy, taxed and MOT'd. Our weapon of choice is a tasty little silver Rover 25 which on collection lasted approximately 3 miles, following which it emptied its petrol tank onto the road. With that, the ABS issues, locking wheel nuts with no key, and the decidely dodgy reverse gear, we'll be lucky to get off the drive let alone Nice . Add to that the need to paint it so it resembles Starsky and Hutch's police car, Zebra 3,and dress ourselves appropriately, the challenge is well and truly on.
So, to pass the time between breakdowns we are collecting for the Birmingham Childrens Hospital, Childrens Heart Appeal.
They are trying to replace their ageing facility with a new state of the art cardiac theatre. This will be a new "hybrid" cardiac theatre - the first of its kind at a UK childrens hospital. 100% of all monies we collect go to the appeal.
We'd also like to thank a few companies for their support and sponsorship namely, Sinemaster Motor Factors Ltd, Urban Coffee Company, Clive Reeves PR and QRKY.
So please, don't be a purp! Dig deep and donate now, or we'll send Starsky and Hutch around to bust ya!!
