Rally team in char­ity road trip

Macclesfield Express - - WILDLIFE -

A TEAM of pals have com­pleted their road trip for char­ity and raised thou­sands of pounds for char­ity.

The friends drove thou­sands of miles across Europe as part of the Ram­shackle Rally, a driv­ing chal­lenge which sees teams head across five coun­tries in five days in a car worth no more than £250.

Si­mon Spurrell, 48, from Sut­ton, Ju­lian Hig­gin­son, 46, Keith Hal­lam, 42, and James Hen­shaw, 38, trans­formed a 20-year-old Volvo into a homage to Ken Dodd, with brightly cov­ered fur.

Their seven-day route took them across three of the high­est moun­tains and most dan­ger­ous roads in Europe be­fore end­ing in Ger­many.

The car made the long trip and was sold to a fel­low rally team from Hartle­pool.

The team have made more than £3,200 for Des­tiny Chil­dren, which funds a school in Kenya pro­vid­ing ed­u­ca­tion, a feed­ing pro­gramme and clean wa­ter.
