It never ceases to amaze me just how generous humans can be. I don’t mean in the monetary sense, I’m talking about their generosity with time, precious time which they are happy to spend raising awareness of charities and organisations that need a little bit of a boost. My pal and fellow classic car enthusiast Charlie is one such lovely human.
Monday 27th June will see her set-off in her late Grandfathers 61 year old MGA Roadster, Frisky, on an epic challenge to cover 2,000 miles in 48 hours. With her Dad as co-driver, they aim to reach the four furthest points of mainland UK without stopping (well, maybe for a tinkle and a brew) in the hope of raising £2,000 for the Herts & Beds SERV group of Blood Runners. I’m sure they’ll have a brilliant time making memories while supporting a very worthy cause. Just fab! If you see them on your travels give them a honk and a wave!
To find out more, and to support Charlie, Dad and Frisky please check out their fundraising page:
