Following on from our blog last week from Team Grayson, here’s an introduction blog from another team on this years banger rally, Team ASDA.
Here’s why Scott, Darren and Lewis are taking part in the Motoscape Rally, have a read below:
OK, so here it is! The first Blog of many (Hopefully)! This is the start of my 2012 Adventure! At the end of last year I came up with this wacky idea of doing a banger rally, cos y’know, it sounded like a good idea at the time. So here we are, 3 months down the line actually properly starting it! We are registered on www.motoscape-rally.co.uk under ASDA. (yea, I know, I’m sad, I had to put something though!) Hopefully will get that changed soon enough. Anyway, as I was saying, we are 3 months down the line, registered and now looking at raising £10000 for charity. Tickled Pink, Everyman, Cash for Kids and The Jasmine Foundation.
The Banger rally we have chosen is covering 10 countries in 7 days, although we are covering 12 countries in 10 days as we are starting form ASDA Bridge of Dee on the 1st September and are planning on stopping at a few stores on the way down to raise some more cash.
At the start I said I would like to start a blog to let everyone know how things are going and also to inform anyone else who is thinking on doing something like this so they can learn from our mistakes!
So at the moment we are just raising some PR about the whole event but that’s not to say we haven’t raised some money. We raised a whopping £21 so far! Granted its not a massive start but we raise that every day we will have over £3000!
Thankfully we are hopefully going to be raising more than that. We have a number of bag packing days that are going to be happening throughout the year with the first one being on Friday the 10th Feb. Anyone willing to help out at any of these please see myself, Lewis Millar or Darren Reid or drop us an email. Any help would be greatly appreciated.
We don’t have a car at present but the hunt is certainly on! Once we have it I will update you on the specifics. It will be placed outside the Bridge of Dee most of the time but keep an eye out as it may make an appearance at a fun day near you!
We are looking for sponsors for this fantastic opportunity, if your a business and you want some cheap advertising please feel free to get in touch as any sponsor will get their name on the car!
Will keep you posted on developments as they happen.
Wish us luck!
Scott, Darren and Lewis
