MEL WARD AND KIM FUDGE
Carpool karaoke runners
When friends Mel and Kim posted a video of themselves having a singalong on the way home from an Elvis tribute gig, the response gave them a fundraising idea. ‘ We’re running a marathon for Clic Sargent, so we thought, “Why not take requests in return for donations?”’ says Kim, 49. Mel and Kim’s Carpool Karaoke was born. The pair, from Dorset, dress up to fit the chosen song, sing it from the car and post footage on their Facebook page. The idea has been such a success that they’ve pledged to sing their way around the race itself. ‘ We’ll sing one song per mile,’ explains Mel, 46. Both women have run marathons. ‘ But now we love dressing up and just enjoying events,’ says Kim.
