Story

Thank You for taking the time to visit our JustGiving page.

We are Andrew Marchant and Anne Jalonen: we are competing in the 2014 Macmillan 4x4 Challenge. This year the running total raised by the event for Macmillan is expected to top £1million - and we want to be part of making that happen. Andrew returns to the navigators seat and teams up with Anne - everyone knows where the best rally drivers come from, and yes we have a flying Finn looking after the driving!

Andrew is a veteran of the event, with two 3rds, one 4th, one 10th place and a Spirit of the Event award under his belt. It may be Anne's first year but we work well as a team and our efforts will make good press for any prospective sponsor. Like to see our vehicle covered in your logos, in return for a decent wad of cash for Macmillan? If so get in touch!

Our entry is a positive way for us to help those dealing with cancer - we all know people whose lives have been dramatically altered by this dreadful disease. Macmillan are actively making life better for those affected – please help us to support them. Every penny you donate goes straight to Macmillan – we are responsible for all of our own costs, including entry, food, fuel and equipment.

The Mac 4x4 (mac4x4.co.uk) is a navigational and observational exercise, with stages set both on and off road. But this is no timed speed rally – we will be spending 4 days together in a Land Rover, attempting to answer clues based on what can be seen around us, while making sure at all times we are going the right way! The challenges thrown at us will be new and novel – we know only to expect the unexpected…

Our vehicle is a 1994 Discovery – over 150k miles on the clock but still going strong. To avoid the “pleasures” of camping in March, we will be sleeping inside the vehicle - which has beds fitted internally making it a basic camper.

Donating through JustGiving is simple, fast and totally secure. Your details are safe with JustGiving – they’ll never sell them on or send unwanted emails. Once you donate, they’ll send your money directly to Macmillan and make sure Gift Aid is reclaimed on every eligible donation by a UK taxpayer. So it’s the most efficient way to donate - we raise more, whilst saving time and cutting costs for the charity.

So please dig deep and donate now.
