Borough lads to take part in banger rally for cancer charity


Three friends are gearing up for an epic rally across Europe in aid of a cancer charity.

Steven Greaves, who lives in Burton Joyce, will be joined by pals from Arnold and Gedling, Simon Glover and Geoffrey Hunkin for the 3,000 mile drive from Margate to Corfu in the Dumball Rally.

Setting off on September 14, it will take them nine days to complete their journey, travelling through France, Switzerland, Bosnia, Montenegro, Kosovo, Albania and Greece.

The car taking the group on their journey cost just £500.

There will be 48 cars in the rally and every team will be raising money for the Teenage Cancer Trust.

The lads were inspired to take part in the trip after a teenage family member was diagnosed with a brain tumour.
