Rust Bucket Rally 2019
Like all “good ideas” it started in the pub, a bit of banter over a pint. But where most “good ideas” from the pub rarely make it beyond closing time, this “good idea” became a great idea and came to fruition … this year for the 4th time!
A rally, distancing 2500 miles, over 4 days and 3 nights, where the entries can spend a maximum of £500 on the car. All in the cause of one nominated charity, which this year 2019, is Children Are Butterflies. We could not be any happier that they chose us.
As you know we have very few overheads, no salaries, so almost all of your donations will end up helping families when they need it most, so we value every single penny that is donated to us. But demand for our funeral grants is growing as knowledge of the charity spreads and this means that we do rely on some truly heroic fundraising efforts to “keep the coffers full”. And the Rust Bucket Rally has been a truly heroic effort – at the time of publishing the total stands at nearly £35,000!
ITV News Anglia, 25th May 2019
We met up with Carl Baldry the organiser and a third of the entries on a sunny saturday morning on 25th May, 2 weeks before they set off on their adventure. The Rally was being featured on ITV News Anglia and the cars had to be spotless and ready for their moment of fame. It was great to meet with the organiser Carl and hear his story, greet some of the teams and their vehicles, and to see the excitement they all share as time draws near.
We wish all of the “Rust Bucketeers” bon voyage for the 7th June and can’t wait to see their safe return on the 10th June.
