Find out about the event

Join us as we wave off Toby and Simon on their road trip in memory of Toby’s mum who was cared for at the hospice. They’re having a big send off on 16 July – and everyone’s invited! They’ll be leaving Mewsbrook Park for their adventure at midday.

Toby and Simon are friends who are no strangers to adventure – as they’ve previously driven through 15 countries a week in 2018 in memory of Toby’s sister. They’re planning another trip this year in memory of Toby’s mum who died in September 2021. Heading off to Istanbul and back in 10 days, all in a MK1 Audi TT with sponsorship logos and other some enhancements to make it stand out from the crowd!

They will get to France then head down to Switzerland through to Italy to drive the Stelvio Pass. Then across to Slovenia  through Croatia,  Bosnia,  Serbia, Kosovan, Bulgaria into Turkey. Drive across the bridge in Istanbul so enter Asia, then head back up to Romania to drive the Transfăgărășan Highway.  Depending on time they might visit a few more countries but will eventually head to Germany for the Nurburgring before returning to England.

Their fundraising will be donated to us and Radio Respect in Bognor.
