A WEST Sussex dealership is helping fundraisers in their 10,000-mile charity driving adventure.
Steve Lilley and Alec Wilding, both from West Sussex, are currently taking part in the annual Mongol Rally, a journey over mountains, deserts, and tough terrain across Europe and Asia.
Yeomans Nissan Bognor Regis has donated a Nissan Micra to team ‘Sussex Rum Runners’ to take part in the fundrasing adventure.
Richard Taylor, sales manager at the Arun Business Park showroom, decided to help out after receiving a letter from Steve Lilley and Alec Wilding, from West Sussex.
The yellow Micra had just been part-exchanged but required extensive work to get it roadworthy, so Richard got his bodyshop team to swing into action.
At least £500 of the money Steve and Alec raise goes to the rally’s chosen organisation, Cool Earth, with the rest being donated to mental health charity, MIND. They’ve already collected £1,850 so far.
Steve said: “It’s such a great little car – she drives like a dream. The Micra is so reliable as well so we’re confident we will finish the rally.”
To sponsor the pair, go to justgiving.com and search for ‘Alec Wilding’.
