PEAK DALE couple Brian and Audrey Murphy are preparing for a road trip with a difference – a four- day drive around the UK to raise money for the Derbyshire, Leicestershire and Rutland Air Ambulance.

On June 29, Brian will embark on his eighth Scally Rally, in his Team SJ Motors Rover 600 accompanied by Audrey. This year’s event will see participants travelling from Wales to Lancashire, taking in the Yorkshire Dales and the Lake District and up to Scotland, ending on July 2.

Scally Rally is a banger rally and driving challenge where participants have a very small budget to buy a car. The route is all on public roads and each day’s driving is accompanied by a challenge. Teams are awarded points that will be totalled up on the final day to provide an overall winner.

Brian and Audrey would like to thank everyone who has supported them so far; Steve and Silvia Granger at SJ Motors who look after the car and help with the fundraising and RT Mycock and Sons, Cement Suppliers for their sponsorship.

Anyone who would like to sponsor Brian and Audrey should call 01298 71523 or 07773445415.
