Grass hearse to en­ter rally

The Peterborough Evening Telegraph - - News -

Three friends are pre­par­ing to raise cash for char­ity by driv­ing across Europe in a hearse cov­ered with ar­ti­fi­cial grass. Joe Allen, 23, Alan Myson, 65, and Joe Draper, 52, will be­gin their un­usual jour­ney on Septem­ber 16. Set­ting off from Mar­ket Deep­ing, where the trio live, they will drive the ve­hi­cle to Dover, where they will meet up with other teams tak­ing part in the Fire­ball Swiss Rally. The fol­low­ing day they will head across the Chan­nel and the rally – which see par­tic­i­pants drive through eight coun­tries in four days – will be­gin in Calais. Joe, Alan and Joe are fund­ing the trip them­selves, so ev­ery penny raised in spon­sor­ship will go to the Manor Lodge Cen­tre, in Mar­ket Deep­ing, which pro­vides ser­vices for chil­dren and young peo­ple with sensory im­pair­ments.
