Fun and Fundraising for Macmillan
Above the start of our 2015 attempt to drive from Land End to John O'Groats
For the last few years Keith and Sylvia have been involved in fundraising for Macmillan Cancer Support by entering the Mac 4x4 Challenge. To date, following a special effort in 2015, we have raised over £10,000.00, and had a lot of fun along the way. For us it is about combining what we love to do with helping a great cause. We try hard to make sure we involve people in our efforts and make it an enjoyable experience for them as well.
Like many others we do not like "tin rattling" collections but are more than happy to help where we can..
Our next venture ....
On March 2nd 2017 we meet at the start line of this years Mac 4x4 Challenge. As yet we have not been advised where that is, as usual we have no idea of the route from there to the finish line at a hotel near Warrington. All we know is that between the Thursday lunchtime and Sunday evening we will cover somewhere up to 600 miles both on and off road following navigation clues and answering different challenges along the way.
The event is all about raising much needed funds for Macmillan Cancer Support. Our vehicle, a 1993 Land Rover Discovery is currently being prepared after our last trip driving from the North of Spain the Southern coast using as little tarmac as possible. It is nearly ready but looks a little odd being mostly white but with three blue doors....
Just a few weeks left but our main concern is fundraising now, while sponsors are welcome we would be pleased to invite anyone who can make it to join us at the Naaz Indian Restaurant for an evening of great food, a quiz and charity auction. The place is Mansfield Woodhouse, the time is any time from 19:00 onwards and the date is Monday 27th February 2017.
