Me and a friend (Chris) will be driving 4500 miles from Edinburgh to Rome at the end of June as part of Rust to Rome. We have to do this in a car that has cost less than £500 and have purchased a 1996 Toyota Celica as a result. If the car breaks down on route we will need to repair it ourselves on the roadside, using the tools we take with us. Prior to this undertaking the most I had ever done on a car was change a wheel, so my mechanical know how is non-existent, which should lead to some interesting times on the road to Rome (I have breakdown cover/scrapyards for the way back). Whilst this isn’t a charity rally, we have decided to use this as an opportunity to raise money for Orchid. Orchid are the Leading UK Male Cancer Charity that work to provide support and awareness of male cancers, as well as funding research. More information on Orchid can be found here Orchid | Fighting Male Cancer With 43,000 men every year being diagnosed with a male cancer the work Orchid do to support them and their families is invaluable. Any support you can provide us would be gratefully received, if you do wish to donate you can do so here Ed Brumhead is fundraising for Orchid Cancer or by texting Rome96 followed by the amount to 70070 (note this will be charged to your phone bill). You can also follow our progress online by liking our facebook page at www.facebook.com/TeamGoNads2015. Here we are with the car we hope will carry us to Rome.
