Car rally raises £126,000 for JDRF
A four-day charity rally is on track to raise a stunning £126,000 to support JDRF’s Type 1 diabetes research.
Over 300 participants and their decorated cars took part in the Scumrun car rally, which saw petrolheads drive old motors – under £500 in value – onto a ferry at Dover and then on to a Continental route that included stops at Nice, Zurich and the Nürburgring.
The launch event on May 14 in Dover was attended by celebrity ‘voice of motoring’ Sally Traffic – well known to listeners of BBC Radio 2 for her travel reports.
She said: “I’m delighted to be supporting the tenth year of Scumrun for JDRF. I’ve heard many adventurous travel tales as my time as a traffic broadcaster. This is a great opportunity for people to have theirs – all while raising money for an important cause.”
Louise Ingham of JDRF said: “Thank you so much to the Scumrun organisers, participants, Sally Traffic and all those who helped raise this phenomenal amount.”
