Getting ready for The Pink Car Rally 2014…

29 Jun

I blogged about a great fundraiser that I was on the peripheries of in May the blog was “Hair Raising..a good Cause”. 

Now its time for phase 2

The aim of a group of us here in Llanwrtyd Wells, Mid Wales was to raise (initially £500) for the Little Princess Trust.  In May 2013 I announced I fancied joining the annual Pink Car Rally organised by Sali Gray and asked some friends if they fancied growing and donating their hair the following May to raise awareness of the cause and get the ball rolling.  Well… June, Jen, Aurelia and Tina raised an astonishing £692 as well as donating their ponytails  during the Music Madness and Mayhem event at the Neuadd Arms Hotel on 4th May 2014.

SO, the target has risen.  We’re aiming for £1000.  It’s a great cause, we have generous friends and acquaintances and phase 2 will be a fun one to follow.

You will probably all know by now of my fabulous 1968 Hillman Husky in its new livery of Magenta pink but just in case you’ve been living in an underground bunker and missed her – here she is.  Ffloyd,  As in Pink Floyd; double “FF” as in Welsh!

If you look back through my blogs you’ll find various references to my darling car

It’s all very exciting.  We’re still waiting for the route release and the entry forms but, as Sali confirmed “you’re on the list”.   You can following the organisational progress via the events FB page if you fancy joining the ever-expanding Pink Community they have going

I personally plan to come along mob handed or at least have ‘mob pockets’ along the route.  I’m looking for an entourage of Loonies and Impers to come out and cheer the rally on. But mostly I’m after your dosh!

As the widget upload seems to be beyond me, you can sponsor me using this link to our JustGiving page and add to the £692 total we have because of the brave ladies who had their heads shaved.  It’s a great cause, helping kids with cancer.

Anyway, looking at previous Pink Car Rally images, I appear to be the only one taking something old and unreliable.  don’t be cheeky,  I’m not referring to my co-driver/partner/mechanic, John Crompton;  but of course, to Ffloyd who, like me will be 46 years old.
