Team story

[p]Hi, thanks for visiting our page. Edward Neville (aka Hawkeye) and I (Martin Smith aka Painless) have been friends since the early 70s when we were in the 6th form together in Ipswich. I invited Ned to join me as my 'Co-Driver' in this year's event after I had such a great experience taking part in the 2014 rally. The idea to raise money for SSAFA by organising a road trip across Europe was the brainchild of Mick Clark and Benn Laidler both military servicemen who have served in most of the 'hot spots' over the last 25 years. SSAFA is a longstanding charity that offers support to all service people and their families when injuries suffered in the line of duty or death have occurred. The rally has taken place every two years since 2010 and this year we have driven 3000 miles, visiting 10 countries in 10 days and have already raised more than £138,000. The idea is to drive a minimum of 5 miles for every serviceman killed in Afghanistan since the UK armed forces were deployed there(456 sadly).There were more than 50 cars of many different types taking part, they weren't all a 'modern classic' like my C36 AMG although that did add another level of satisfaction when we and the Merc. made it back to the UK! Through Virgin Money Giving, you can sponsor us and donations will be quickly processed and passed to SSAFA. Virgin Money Giving is a not for profit organisation and will claim gift aid on a charity's behalf where the donor is eligible for this. We really appreciate all your support and thank you for any donations to what is an extremely worthwhile cause.[/p]
