Helping Rob cope with Tetraplegia

THE SHIRE BOYS’ MONGOL RALLY – 19 JULY TO 30 AUGUST 2014

It’s busy busy busy if you’re a Shire Boy! Embassy visits, Mechanics 101  and driving theory tests are just some of their recent activities! In between they are keeping both their website and Facebook page up to date with all their exploits so be sure to check them out.

———————————————————————————————————————————————

The Shire Boys are in desperate need of a car for their challenge. Details below, if you think you can help or know someone who can, please get in touch either via their website or Facebook page.

URGENT APPEAL FOR A CAR, PLEASE SHARE:
In the classic style of our lives, with less than 23 days until the car number plate and chassis number has to be supplied to obtain our visas and start the rally, we find ourselves with no vehicle.
…Unfortunately after extensive debate, we do believe the four geared Peugeot shall not get us to Germany, let alone Mongolia and back.
If anybody has a car or knows anybody that is selling a car please get in contact by either commenting below or emailing:
teamshireboys@gmail.com
Must have conditions of the vehicle:
– Engine size up to 1.4L
– Petrol engine, not Diesel
– Over ten years old
– MOT (Or just recently run out)
Preferable added extras although not needed:
– Under 80’000 Miles
– 4X4
– Great CD/Tape collection
– Used recently
– Tax –
Service History
All help shall be greatly appreciated and qualify as a sponsor for our team, its just always best when buying a used car to have that piece of mind knowing where it has come from and the history through a personal contact rather than just Ebay or Gumtree.
The car will be loved.
Many Thanks,
The Shire Boys.

Three Wycliffe College contemporaries of Rob’s have signed up to the Mongol Rally 2014 to raise funds for Rob. George Mossman, Hugo Cooke and Jos Chillingworth will be taking on the challenge to travel from the UK to Mongolia in a 1 litre car!

According to those in the know  the Mongol Rally is “10,000 miles of feral, unsupported adventuring chaos from the UK to Mongolia in cars the size of a lawnmower. It’s not clever, it’s not safe and we might not finish but it is the greatest adventure on the planet. Basically, The Mongol Rally is a 10,000 mile adventure from the UK through 21 different countries to Mongolia in cars your gran would drive.”

It sounds like an amazing experience and we wish them the best of luck with their planning.

We will be posting links to The Shire Boys’ Mongol Rally website and their donation page very soon!
