CCW Al­le­gro does a Le Jog

Classic Car Weekly (UK) - - News -

An Austin Al­le­gro pi­loted by two of CCW’s writ­ing crew has suc­cess­fully – and sur­pris­ingly – trav­elled the length of the coun­try, rais­ing more than £600 for char­ity in the process.

Web pro­ducer Calum Brown and con­trib­u­tor Martin Domoney did the 874-mile jour­ney from Land’s End to John O’Groats in Calum’s trusty 1.3-litre 1980 model. So far their to­tal stands at £632.24 for Help for He­roes, do­nated via a page on the JustGiv­ing fundrais­ing web­site.They’d like CCW readers to help them reach their target of £1000.

‘Martin and I have al­ways wanted to do Land’s End to John O’Groats in a clas­sic and after watch­ing a par­tic­u­larly har­row­ing piece on the news about what in­jured sol­diers have to go through we de­cided Help for He­roes was a very wor­thy cause. We’re hugely sur­prised that the Al­le­gro did the en­tire run with­out any is­sues at all, although it was not quite the same story for the jour­ney from Scot­land back to the of­fices in Peter­bor­ough, Cam­bridgeshire. We are lucky to be alive.’

You’ll be able to read about Calum’s epic Al­le­gro ad­ven­ture in Our Clas­sics over the next few weeks.
