Hi everyone, thanks for checking out our page.  We have entered the Scumball 3000 european road rally which has chosen Winston's Wish as its named charity for this year.  Its a bit like Gumball 3000 only in cars that cost less than £500 so unfortuantely not so glamourous!

It all starts at the Goodwood Motorcircuit in West Sussex on the 19th April when all the cars will get checked and we get to know our fellow scumballers. After the pre party we have to make our way in convoy to Calais by ferry via Dover for the 6AM ferry. Once in Calais the rally starts and we are given our destination for that day. We are not told about the route until the day we drive it. We should be driving roughly 500 miles a day, which is the distance from London to Aberdeen!!! And if this was not enough we will also be attempting to sleep in a tent each night.

We are not doing this for pleasure, we are in it to win it. We are also making some secret modifications to boost our chances.

Thanks to Neobrothers for their help getting the car up to spec for the rally (www.neobrothers.co.uk saab specialists) and to Century Computing for help with the charity sponsorship (www.centurycomputing.co.uk).

Please dig deep and sponsor us online as we need all the help we can get.

ALL MONEY RAISED HERE GOES DIRECTLY TO CHARITY AND DOES NOT PAY FOR ANY ASPECT OF THIS RALLY, WE ARE PAYING PERSONALLY FOR THIS.

Winston's Wish helps bereaved children and young people rebuild their lives after a family death. We offer practical support and guidance to families, professionals and anyone concerned about a grieving child.

Thank you for visiting my fundraising page. Please dig deep and sponsor me online.

Donating through this site is simple, fast and totally secure. It is also the most efficient way to sponsor me: Winston's Wish will receive your money faster and, if you are a UK taxpayer, an extra 28% in tax will be added to your gift at no cost to you.

So please sponsor us now!

Many thanks,

Nick, Andy, Graham & Alex.
