‘Mad Hatters’ raise money for Plan

06/07/2012

Mad Hatters Tea Party rally carDaring foursome, Maria Robinson, Steve Crabtree, David Dignam and Tom Brain are braving the Mongol Rally this month to raise money for Plan.

The team, who have called themselves the Mad Hatters Tea Party, will set off on their 10,000 mile trip to Mongolia on 15 July. After leaving the UK and winding through Europe, their route will take them through Iran, Turkmenistan, Kazakhstan, Azerbaijan, Tajikistan and Russia.

Attempting their expedition in an old Fiat Punto named Bruce, the ‘Mad Hatters’ are expecting a difficult journey ahead. Only cars of less than 1200cc are permitted to enter the event and, without any support teams to help them along the way, the Mongol Rally is a challenging adventure for all.

“It takes approximately five weeks to complete the rally. It’s a crazy route, we receive no help, no RAC equivalent, no nothing,” says Maria, one of the participants.

Sponsorship money collected in support of their exciting venture will be split between three charities, including Plan. With the funds raised for Plan, it is expected that each team-member will effectively sponsor one child for a minimum of five years.

This invaluable support will enable Plan to help more children move from a life of poverty to a future of opportunity.

Keep up-to-date with the team by visiting their website or support their efforts by making a donation.
