Mad-as-a-gas-car – Two Ball Beach Rally

Congratulations to our Managing Director, Claire Greenwood, who completed the Two Ball Rally – beach route earlier this month. She was part of a team of four ladies that drove from Northamptonshire to St Omer in France, down to Annecy, onto Sanremo in Italy, through Monaco, Monte Carlo to Perpignan and then finishing in Barcelona in a car worth less than £500!

Along the journey the team competed with 49 other teams, to complete a series of tasks and challenges for points to determine a winner. Points and prizes were awarded for a number of other criteria, including: customisations, theme and decoration of the vehicles and teams. The team’s theme was a take on the Film MADAGASCAR with the team members taking on the personas of the Madagascar animation characters, seen below.

The team took part in the event to raise money for SANDS, a charity that works to support anyone affected by the death of a baby. The team have raised £625 to date and would love to raise more for the worthy cause. Please check their JustGiving page if you would like to donate:
