A worthy cause
As we speak, a group of 24 excellent men from the St Albans & Herts area have embarked on a fabulous MINI challenge: to buy a convertible MINI for under £1,000, then drive to Athens and back to the UK in only seven days, with the condition that the roof must be down all the way!
The 12-MINI convoy left the UK on Sunday for Luxembourg, then Monday to Bologna, Tuesday to Bari and today they are driving down through Greece to Athens, before the return trip via Croatia, Romania and a host of other countries.
A pic is attached of some of the cars at the Coliseum in Rome yesterday.
Here's the link to their Charity challenge, plus a link to the Facebook page of one of the drivers, James Darby, who has been documenting the trip, along with his co-driver David Norton.
Any support would be hugely appreciated by the guys as they work their way around Europe!
