Ready to go and we’ve hit our charity target!

24 07 2010

The car is ready. We’ve put the stickers on…they could look better but we’re not entering a concourse competition here are we!
The boot is nearly full already…nuns costumes, water guns, tow rope, some basic tools, warning triangle, spare bulbs, hi-via vests and a second spare wheel! We’ve still to fit four bags in there as well!

We’re booked on the Channel Tunnel at 2:50 tomorrow, so we’ll be picking Edd up at midday. We have to take a couple of photos of the four of us at Edd’s house and quickly email them to the Daily Echo in Southampton. They were meant to come to my house today to do a piece on us for Mondays edition but the photographer got sent elsewhere instead. They did a kind of telephone interview with me and asked for a photo tomorrow and it will still make Mondays paper. I’m hoping it makes it on to their website ( so I can have a look at it while we’re in France.

I am very happy to day that tonight we hit our fund raising target of £1,000!!! We currently stand at £1,021, so a HUGE thank you to everyone who has donated so generously. It doesn’t stop there though, the whole piece in the Daily Echo is to try and raise awareness of what we are doing so we might hopefully get some e
Create donations from that story on Monday. Also, the company I work for have apology that they will match employee fundraising, to a maximum of £500 per person per year, so that means our actual total at the moment is £1,521. How good is that!

The fun starts tomorrow. We are all very excited now.
I’ll update again tomorrow night when we are in our hotel in Calais.
