You may be wondering what the above is … Well…
Monte-Carlo or Bust is a banger rally adventure charity event, as featured in The Sunday Times, on Sky Sports News and also on the BBC (www.montecarloorbustrally.com)
Nigel, our Production Manager, and 2 of his friends are spending three days driving to Monte Carlo in a car that cost less than £300 (a banger you would agree!) whilst raising as much money for their chosen charity of ‘Essex and Hertfordshire Air Ambulance’ just to give you an idea on E & H Air Ambulance, they are a vital life-saving Helicopter Emergency Medical Service and is solely funded by charitable donations. They operate 365 days a year and currently each mission costs around £2700
The event starts on Thursday the 16th July 2015 in Saint Quentin France. After registering, they are heading off to Dijon then on to Turin and finally Monte Carole for the official finish outside the Casino Royale on the 19th July – they will be covering almost 1400 miles in 3 days!! With a few detours on the way for a pit stop (beer)!! The car will then be scrapped in Nice with all proceeds going in the charity pot!
As well as many other sponsors, Kingdom have sponsored Nigel & co, this is a charity that is very close to everyone’s hearts in Essex so a worth while cause you would agree!
We will be following Nigel’s journey so please keep your eye’s peeled and as to whether it is indeed Monte Carlo or Bust???? Let’s wish him luck!
