Chris Is Gearing Up To Travel Europe (For Charity) – Harbour Cars
Next month (May) Chris and 2 others will be part of one team going under the name Team Scabby Donkey who will be taking part in the annual Scumrun event.
The Scumrun is a 4 day charity event where approximately 100 cars travel 3000 miles across Europe following an undisclosed route to raise money for charity. Leaving Brands Hatch on 8th May the route is given to the teams each morning and they have checkpoints to target throughout the day.
The car’s used must have cost less than £500 to purchase and make the challenge of driving through Europe a little more interesting, their car of choice is a BMW 740i.
The 2013 route took participants from Dover, Calais, Cologne, Hamelin, Berlin, Polish Border, Prague, Pizen, Amberg, Stuttgart, Strasbourg, Champagne region of France and back home again.
This year the Scumrun will be raising money for the baby charity Tommy’s and the teams are aiming to raise collectively £100,000.00 to help Tommy’s open a new research centre. Tommy’s is dedicated to saving babies lives through funding research into the causes and prevention of miscarriage, premature birth and stillbirth.
If you would like to support Chris he has set up a Virgin Giving website which can be found here at www.VirginMoneyGiving.com/ScabbyDonkey so that everyone can see how much they have raised.
