Team story

[p]Please give generously! [url=https://www.bmo-around-the-world-challenge.com/][b]CASCAID Around the World Challenge[/b][/url][b] [/b]- Drive around the world without leaving the UK….Visit Canada, Chile, New Zealand, Israel, the USA, Australia, Russia and Trinidad & Tobago without needing a Passport.[/p][p]As you may be aware, [url=http://www.cascaidcharity.com/][b]CASCAID[/b][/url] has returned for another round of events to raise money, this time for [b]Great Ormond Street Hospital[/b], in London. Since its formation in 1852, the hospital has been dedicated to children’s healthcare and to finding new and better ways to treat childhood illnesses. Great Ormond Street Hospital (GOSH) is an international centre of excellence in child healthcare with the broadest range of dedicated, children’s healthcare specialists under one roof in the UK. The hospital’s pioneering research and treatment gives hope to children from around the world with the rarest, most complex and often life-threatening conditions. On average, 618 children and young people arrive at GOSH each day for life-changing treatments. Great Ormond Street Hospital Children’s Charity needs to raise money to support the hospital to give children who need help the most, the best chance for life. The charity funds research into pioneering new treatments for children, provides the most up to date medical equipment, funds support services for children and their families and supports the essential rebuilding and refurbishment of the hospital. Our aim is to contribute to the new cardiac catheter theatre for GOSH – their current one is not fit for purpose.[/p][p][b]The challenge[/b][/p][p]The aim is to drive around the UK to towns/villages/cities that share a name with a town/city overseas. Points will be awarded for towns visited, and any additional found on route (there are plenty). The start is provisionally Hyde Park in London with teams allowed to choose any route, with the caveat that certain destinations are compulsory. Teams must spend a maximum of £750 buying and pimping an 'old banger' with which to complete the challenge…we have found ourselves a gas guzzling gold Jag with 126,000 miles on the clock (see pictures below). Wish us luck, we are going to need it![/p][p]Thank you for taking the time to read our page. Please support John Tevenan, Rob Thorpe and David Wahi as we embark on this challenge and donate to this fantastic cause! [/p]

A great idea for a great cause. I dreamt of you reading this while hunched over a bust engine on the M1. I've been misfiring too- I sponsored a rival team thinking it was you. I'd say 'wish I was with you' but 34 deg tomorrow ...' Beers will be provided.
