I am on a quest to find more cars to take part in the Pink Car Rally, which will be taking place on 6 and 7 September, to help raise awareness of (and funds for) the Little Princess Trust Charity, which gives ‘real hair’ wigs to children who lose their own hair, primarily through chemotherapy. Participants travel from all over the UK to join the rally, so I would really welcome any extra participants. And if your car isn’t the right colour do any of your friends, colleagues or relatives own a pink car.
The rally is strictly ‘on road’ and is more like a pink parade, which makes its way across the UK raising awareness of, and funds for, the Little Princess Trust charity, which gives ‘real hair’ wigs to children and young adults who lose their own hair, primarily through cancer treatments.
This year’s rally will be ‘orbiting the orbital’, by completing a clockwise circuit of the M25, over the two days.
Starting in Langley, Slough, day one will see the pink procession join the M25, heading in a clockwise direction.
A pink pit stop is planned at noon, at South Mimms Services, before they head off again continuing their marathon until they arrive at Lakeside, where the pink cars will preen for the public and the drivers will collect coins for the charity.
Pink participants will be staying in the area overnight, before starting day two of the rally at Brands Hatch, Britain’s best-loved motor racing circuit.
From Brands Hatch, the pink parade will continue around the M25, and is planning a special ‘secret stop’ along the way, before continuing to Langley, Slough to complete the circuit. More information regarding the secret stop will be posted on Facebook and Twitter closer to the date. If you would like to make a donation to the cause, we would be delighted. We have a fundraising page www.justgiving.com/teams/pink-car-rally-2014.
Scroll through the team members and click on one of their pages to make a donation. All JustGiving donations go directly to the charity, which relies on fundraising activities and donations to fund the beautiful ‘real hair’ wigs, which they give to children. Families unaware of the charity, who buy a wig for their child privately, can pay between £1,200 and £2,000 for one. This is precisely why we also want to raise awareness of the charity throughout the UK and Ireland.
