BDMLR Medic after your support for 3,000 mile fundraiser

Sue Davie (East Devon Co-ordinator) and fellow 'conspirator' Dawn Sandiford (Team Risky Business) are taking part in the Plymouth to Banjul Challenge this year. Originally started in 2003 as the 'poor man's Paris to Dakar', it has now been internationally recognised as the worlds 'Ultimate Banger Challenge'.

"We found out about 'the challenge' just too late to apply for last years run but decided that if we could get through the selection process this year we just had to do it; and now we are. We leave Plymouth on the 29th December on the 12noon ferry to Roskoff, and then we really will believe its happening.

One of the reasons we so wanted to do this is because we are both involved with our own charities and wanted to raise awareness and money for them."

Sue is raising money for the BDMLR and Dawn is doing the same for Hospiscare, both of which are run entirely on voluntary contributions.
