1 LANDROVER ...
10,000 MILES ...
IN WORLD RECORD TIME!
ALL FOR ONE VERY DESERVING CHARITY!
Many thanks for taking the time to visit our JustGiving page.
Let us give you a bit more information on our world record expedition, as well as BIBIC, the charity we are doing all this for.
World Record Expedition...
Over the next few months, we will be stripping and rebuilding our 4th team member; a 200tdi Landrover Defender 130. We are looking for donations of parts, advice and assistance from people such as yourselves in order to achieve this task.
In October 2013 the 'Drive4Change' team of myself (Steve Hancock), Tony Cole and Ben Worth will travel from London to Cape Town covering 10,000 miles through 21 countries. The sole purpose to break the current record of 11 DAYS 14 HOURS 11 MINUTES set in 2010 by Mac MacKenney, Chris Rawlings and Steve MacKenney. Prior to the 2010 expedition, this record had stood for 47 years.
From high-speed motorways, across desert tracks and pot-holed roads, this journey is a true test of man and machine.
Our intended route is as follows:
UK - France - Belgium - Holland - Germany - Austria - Slovenia - Croatia - Serbia - Bulgaria
Turkey - Syria - Jordan - Saudi Arabia
Sudan - Ethiopia - Kenya - Tanzania - Zambia - Zimbabwe - South Africa
Each year, hundreds of thousands of children are born with brain conditions that affect their social communication and learning abilities.
BIBIC is a national charity offering practical help to families caring for children with conditions like autism, cerebral palsy, downs syndrome, developmental delay, brain injury, and specific learning difficulties like ADHD, dyslexia and dyspraxia. After taking a tour of the BIBIC assessment centre and meeting some of the families touched by the charity, it was clear that we wanted to do anything we could to help. Together we can help a disabled child smile for the first time, play with friends, catch a ball or say 'I love you' after years of being unable to communicate. Well worth the effort! 'Drive 4 Change' was born!
Clearly this is a mammoth task and one which will require a lot of work and dedication. On behalf of BIBIC and the 'Drive4Change' team, we want to thank you for taking the time to read through this email and hope that you can help us in some way.
Even the smallest donation would go a long way to ensuring the success of our expedition in raising as much money as we possibly can for such a great cause!
