Mid Wales to the Sahara desert…..and back….in 3 Vauxhall Astras…..in 16 days….for charity
Starting out on 10th of April 2014, we (Simon Bedford, Mark Harrison, Jim Wilkinson , Tom Wilkinson, Nick Harrison, Andy Capon) aim to get three Vauxhall Astras to Western Sahara on the north west coast of Africa.
Our six-man team will be looking to raise a few thousand pounds for Hope House Children's Hospice on an epic 7000 mile round trip, taking in Marrakech and the Atlas Mountains. The cars are 16-20 years old each, and have a combined mileage of 600,000+ miles.
We aim are raising money for Hope House Children's Hospices - based in Oswestry and Conwy. They provide specialist nursing care in addition to practical and emotional support to terminally ill and life limited children.
