We’ve just picked up a couple of Minirigs for the trip. Thanks to Minirigs and PASCE They’re extremely impressive little speakers which should be sturdy enough to last to Mongolia and for quite a while after! What this space for videos of them in action…
If you like the look of them, we will be auctioning them upon our return and giving all proceeds to charity.
So after the loss of our Perodua Kelisa, we now have a new car. It’s a 1992 Nissan Micra K10.
Rally modifications are well underway, and this afternoon we took out the back seats, fitted roof bars and changed the engine and gearbox oil, though the latter was unintentional and prompted a quick run to Halfords at 4:30 on a Sunday afternoon to get some replacement gearbox oil.
PASCE, the creators of the infamous minirig (http://minirigs.co.uk) have agreed to sponsor us on our amazing journey. We love their little minirigs and are delighted to have them as a sponsor.
You may have noticed that we now have a new logo! We would like to say a big thanks to Helena for designing this for us.
We have changed our fundraising platform from Just Giving to Virgin Money. This was done for 2 reasons:
– Firstly, they give more of the donated money to the charities.
– They also allow a single fundraising page with a direct split of the donations.
Any money donated via Just Giving will still be donated to the charities, but from now on all donations should be made at:
FUNDRAISING UPDATE: £311/£1000
We would like to thank Detica who have very generously donated £200 towards our two very worthwhile causes.
This means we are well on our way to meeting our £1000 target. If you would like to help support Cool Earth and/or MSF, please donate these worthwhile causes here:
