CHARITABLE motorists drove a fleet of dressed-up bangers from London to Blackpool last weekend.

The 24 fundraisers completed the Two Tower Challenge in aid of the Teenage Cancer Trust.

Simon Chapman, from Shirley, organised the rally in memory of a friend who died of cancer three years ago.

He said: "The sight of ten amazing-looking cars crossing the Peak District with nearly every passing car hooting their horns and every passer-by cheering and smiling was such an amazing feeling.

"The effort, energy and passion that everyone put into the rally was amazing."

The challenge was to complete the 250-mile route in a specially-decorated car costing no more than £350.

They have so far raised £2,000, and more is expected from the car sales.

The fundraisers will also be hosting a celebratory charity gig and auction on Saturday, February 23.

All the proceeds from the event at the Shirley Park Golf Club will go to the Teenage Cancer Trust.

The evening will feature live music from Amnesia, a charity auction, and a screening of a film of the Two Tower Challenge.

For tickets, £10 per person, contact Val on 020 8777 1063 or val.chapman19@hotmail.co.uk Visit justgiving.com/TwoTowerChallenge to donate.
