Around Bri­tain in Num­bum the MG

Classic Car Weekly (UK) - - News -

A kind­hearted cou­ple are tak­ing their 79-year-old MG on a 4000-mile jour­ney around the UK to raise cash for char­ity.

Owen and Pam Fran­k­land will be set­ting off from Mid­dles­brough’s Trans­porter Bridge on 22 July to drive around the en­tire coast of main­land Bri­tain in their 1937 TA, chris­tened Num­bum. They will be rais­ing funds for Duchenne Mus­cu­lar Dys­tro­phy.

Owen says: ‘We don’t have a fixed plan – so we’re just set­ting off and driv­ing. We’ll find ac­com­mo­da­tion where we can and will be car­ry­ing a small tent so we won’t be stuck if we can’t find ho­tels.’

The Fran­k­lands hope to cover 150 miles a day.
