Team Beetle Baker Boys’s story

Anyone who knows Richard and I will know of our love of fast cars, our annual driving holidays to Scotland or Ireland.... well this is nothing remotely like that! In our collective wisdom, we had planned to complete the 2019 Rusty Rally with the Outward Bound Trust. This entailed driving 700 miles through 6 countries in 3 days over 50 of the highest mountain passes in Europe - in a car that cost less than £500!

Sadly, due to reasons beyind their control, the OBT have had to cancel this years event, so instead we are pointing our lovingly prepared 17 year old VW Beetle north and taking on the infamous North Coast 500, and adding in the mileage from North Wales and back, this is now an even longer challenge for us!

Everyone who had already kindly sponsored us has pledged their funds to this new challenge, so dig deep remaining potential sponsors - we will be facing treacherous conditions in our little yellow Beetle, risking life and limb, not an Audi or Porsche in sight for us.....

What makes us wonderful?

We recognise the selfless commitment made by fundraisers who train for months to run marathons, face their fears by jumping out of aeroplanes or open their homes to the community for charity bakes and coffee mornings. We believe the charities they support should receive EVERY PENNY from their fundraising efforts.

We also believe that Gift Aid (a scheme enabling charities to reclaim tax on donations made by UK taxpayers) should be directed IN FULL to the charities. This is why the Wonderful Organisation does not generate profit (or even cover costs) by deducting money from fundraisers' sponsors or Gift Aid contributions.

We are a non-profit organisation funded entirely by like-minded, philanthropic businesses. That's what makes us wonderful!
