Team story

[p]Hi, thanks for visiting our page. Through Virgin Money Giving, you can sponsor us and donations will be quickly processed and passed to Place2Be.  [/p][p]We are driving a 57 year old MkII Jag from Peking to Paris following the route of a famous 1907 rally. We cross the Gobi desert, into Siberia, Eastern Europe, down to Italy and up across the Alps covering nearly 14,000km in 35 days.[/p][p]My wife, Laura, is a trustee of Place2Be - a fantastic charity helping children, across the country, cope with wide-ranging and often complex social issues including bullying, bereavement, domestic violence, family breakdown, neglect and trauma.[/p][p]The role of Princess Kate, the Duchess of Cambridge, as the Patron of Place2Be has helped to raise the profile of an under-reported but growing problem.[/p][p]Matt and I would like to ask for your support for Place2Be to make sure that we add even more value to what will be for us a trip of a lifetime.    [/p][p]Thank you for your support[/p][p]Doug & Matt[/p][p][/p][p][/p]
