My story

[p][b]What’s It All About?[/b][/p][p]This was an opportunity of a lifetime I could not miss, driving on some of Europe’s finest and most scenic roads.[/p][p]The only snag was that our car had to cost around a measly £500 to be entered in to the Banger Rally – our car (using this word loosely!) is a 2002 Vauxhall Zafira costing an exorbitant £200. Our vehicle is Rally Car No. 172; our team consists of Manny Martins, David Leach (Fellow 41ers), Joanne Leach plus myself.[/p][p]The Rally will start on Sunday 30th September leaving St. Austell Cornwall at lunchtime and finish in Gibraltar on Friday 5th October. To keep the teams amused there will be several tasks to perform on route each day to earn bonus points – as well as managing to coax our own choice of wreck to the next stop over. [/p][p]Organised by St. Austell Round Table -there are 200 teams competing – six days of Great Fun and Fellowship. You can read more about the event online; [url=http://www.bangerrallychallenge.co.uk/]http://www.bangerrallychallenge.co.uk[/url][/p][p]I REALLY NEED YOUR SUPPORT TO HELP ME RAISE AS MUCH MONEY AS I CAN FOR MY SPECIAL CHOSEN CHARITY: STEPPING STONES DS [/p][p]Please don’t forget to tick the Gift Aid option, which boosts your donation by 25p for every £1 you donate.[/p][p]Thank you so much for your assistance which is greatly appreciated - as you can imagine I could not resist this challenge.[i] [/i][/p][p][i]Geoff King[/i][/p][p][br][/p][p][b]About My Chosen Charity [/b][/p][p][url=http://www.steppingstonesds.co.uk][b]Stepping Stones DS[/b][/url] supports children & young people with Down Syndrome in North Hampshire, Berkshire & Surrey.
