A highly skilled group of three PhD-students from Teddy Hall, Oxford, who coincidently are also mechanically inept, couldn't think of a better way to aquaint themselves with cars than to undertake this adventure. Add to the mix that they also need social skills training, this will surely prove to be a sight to see.
Too many people know how it feels to lose a friend or loved one to bone cancer. Unfortunately, everyone at Teddy Hall (St Edmund Hall, University of Oxford) knows that feeling all too well. Matthew Greenwood was a third year engineering student (age 21) at the Hall when he became ill. He was first diagnosed with osteonecrosis but it was later found to be a kind of bone cancer. In March of 2016 he rowed for the top boat at Teddy Hall, and later that summer he was given just 9 months to live. Clearly bone cancer can strike anyone at anytime and is difficult to diagnose. That is why we are fundraising for the Bone Cancer Research Trust funds research targeting the development of new bone cancer treatments as well as the reduction of side effects of existing treatments.
Kwikpac was the first sponsor to join our fundraising campaign! With their help we've been able to finance our chariot for the rally. We're looking forward to having Kwikpac Jack - a Teddy Bear mascot - joining us in the rally!
We are extremely happy to announce that we are now proudly sponsored by Southern Fried Chicken! With three franchises on our route, we'll be well fed when we depart Almaty, Ulaanbaatar and Erdenet. We'll also be bringing along the chicken mascot "From the Heart" - which is now also the name of our car!
Word cannot express how much we owe Alladin's Garage. On a test run to New Forest in Southern England, we all of a sudden found ourselves with only 2 out of 3 functioning cylinders. But the problems kept building up, and all of a sudden we didn't know if our car would actually make it out of the UK... But Aladdin Oxford LTD jumped to the rescue! With their help our steed will be roadworthy in time for the rally!
What better way to advertise our sponsors and the Bone Cancer Research Trust and stand out from all the other cars on the road, than to equip our chariot with high quality stickers?! That's why we're so excited to welcome Stickermule onto our fundraising campaign as well! They will high quality coated stickers that'll be able the tough conditions we'll encounter during the 16,000 km roadtrip!
Having failed the first MOT we took to trying to fix our car ourselves. Let's just say that mechanics we are not! Luckily for us, Richard Cook and This Is Your Garage helped us out and made sure we could lawfully drive our car.
