En route for Mon­go­lia

Buckinghamshire Advertiser - - NEWS -

THREE friends have set off on the ad­ven­ture of a life­time.

Peter Em­manuel, 20, and James Barker, 19, from Ger­rards Cross, and Max Mor­gan, 20, from Chal­font St Peter, started the an­nual Mon­gol Rally on Satur­day in their 15-year-old Ford Fi­esta.

Peter and Max were pupils at Thorpe House School, in Ger­rards Cross, and met James at se­condary school.

The rally started in Lon­don. The route through France, Bel­gium, the Nether­lands, the Czech Repub­lic, Slo­vakia, Ukraine and Rus­sia cov­ers about 10,000 miles and seven time zones and in­volves cross­ing deserts and moun­tain ranges.

The friends are rais­ing money for the char­ity Wil­liam’s Fund, which helps fund re­search into child­hood can­cers.
