Martha Trust Rome or Bust Car Challenge

Posted on Apr 5, 2016

Two 60-something grans from Deal, Pat Wilson (who runs this site) and Jill Burford are taking part in the Martha Trust’s annual car challenge and are needing to raise a minimum of £1500.

Rome or Bust 2016 Car Challenge

This year’s challenge is to drive from Deal to Rome in 3 days. No challenge there you say? Challenge rules are that the car must be roadworthy with an MOT but must cost no more than £200. Clearly it won’t be a race!

As if that isn’t challenge enough, Jill and Pat have never changed a tyre and reportedly need a manual to open the bonnet…cue M&D Motors in Water Street who have bravely agreed to give us a few swift lessons.

Please sponsor us in our challenge. Especially if your business is listed on this site for free. There are hundreds of hits a day searching for business address and contact details.

We have set up a JustGiving page – Grans on the Run.

You can also sponsor us by text. Just text GOTR66 and your amount eg £3 to 70070
