On Wednesday 4th June – Kathy, Sam and Justyna set off on their Monte Carlo Challenge… and they won!!! Firstly we would like to send our congratulations to the ladies on a fantastic win, read on to find out more about this incredible challenge…
This challenge is the ultimate European banger rally adventure. The challenge is to buy a car for £250 or less and travel through Europe’s greatest roads and cities for three days to get to Monte Carlo, whilst taking part in ‘Top Gear style’ challenges along the way.
The ladies decided to take part in the event after entering last year and coming third. This year they decided to support Jeremiah’s Journey through the challenge. They bought their ‘banger’ for £250 and transformed it into a ‘yellow submarine’ (pictured above). The car even includes a water gun and a coin slot for people to make donations!
The team have carried out various fundraising activities on the lead up to the challenge, this includes inviting schools to take part in a ‘hippy dress’ down day and visiting them in the ‘yellow submarine’. They also attended fayres and much more to try and meet their £3000.00 fundraising target.
After setting off from Plymouth last Wednesday the team headed to their first meeting spot in Belgium. From there they travelled down through Germany then on to Lake Como in Italy before they completed the final stretch to Monte Carlo where they completed the challenge and were crowned overall winners of the challenge! Kathy said “It was a great trip meeting new friends in some wonderful places. Jeremiah enjoyed his journey and joined in all the challenges and loved dressing up”.
We would like to send huge congratulations to the team on their victory, we are so grateful to them for supporting us through this amazing challenge. All funds raised will support local children and their families.
The team have currently raised £1683.05, please help them to reach their £3000.00 target by clicking here: http://www.justgiving.com/montecarloorbustjeremiahsjourney
