Cornish Duo Bound for Mongolia
adventurers from Cornwall are going on a bit of a roadtrip… to Mongolia… in a Ford Fiesta
Robert Eddy and Paul Brown from Penzance are about to embark on global charitable adventure. They’re aimining to take a very basic car and now drive 10,000 miles to the other side of the Earth in the Mongol Rally.
The key rule of this rally is that it must be completed in a car under 1200cc. Each team participating in the Rally must raise a minimum of £1000 for a chosen Charity supporting local Mongolian Children.
The Cornish team, Penzance Pirates, will be departing from Lands End on the 17th July and will arrive in the Mongolian capital of Ulaanbaatar about Four week weeks later. The distance covered will be about 10,000 miles.
The Pair will raise money for Christina Noble Childrens Foundation,
The Christina Noble Children’s Foundation is dedicated to helping children in need with education, medical care, social opportunities, and job placement. All of this is done with love, dignity and respect for each child as an individual.
Paul Brown said: "We believe that this charity provides vital and much needed support to subsistence rural communities in Mongolia and is therefore well worth our support and we hope to be able to witness the impact this charity is having in Mongolia when we travel through the country."
Team Penzance Pirates is also raising money for CLIC Sargent’s Sennen Ward at Treliske Hospital in Cornwall, which there close friend has had a lot of attention there due to her suffering with Bone Cancer
