On the 25 of September 2014, James Chapman and Graeme Feeney from Bella Bathrooms will be taking part in the Screwball Rally in an attempt to raise money for the Cancer Research UK charity. The event will consist of a 5 day drive from Dover, stopping off at other various countries and ending in Calais totalling 1650 miles. The method of driving and the route the pair make will be totally down to them and dependant on their choice the trip could be made shorter or longer. All that’s necessary is that the two reach the finish line within the correct time frame.
You might think that it doesn’t sound too hard, but the pair need to follow certain rules before even starting the event. A strict limit has been applied and only £750 can be spent on the vehicle of their choice. As with anything James and Graeme do, it wont be as straight forward as it sounds as they will be competing the rally in fancy dress to match the specially themed car. The vehicle will need to be prepared suitably for the event and customisation can be applied after purchase.
For those of you who don’t know the history of the event, here’s a few pieces of data to show how effective and successful the Screwball Rally is. Since it was first formed in 2009 the event has attracted a lot of participants and in a combined total raised £98,000 for a wide range of charities around the UK and attracts a wide variety of people from all over the country.
With the understanding of how effective the event is, we plan on trying to raise as much as possible for the specific charity we are representing. With that all said and done we are asking for any donations possible in order to reach our target. In return for a donation we have guaranteed that all donators will receive their company logo printed on the outer surface of our car. This opportunity will provide a company with the ability to feature on our vehicle resulting in an improved level of public recognition whilst helping us to raise the money for our chosen organisation. Overall the rally itself is designed to be fun and enjoyable and the ability to integrate a charity raising scheme makes it fully worthwhile.
The Cancer Research UK charity is an amazing organisation that provides patients with the help they need and we want to give something back to them for their amazing work. We would like to reiterate that all donations will be greatly appreciated and will go towards a brilliant cause.
