Chandlers Lewes branch manager, Stuart Campbell and Chandlers Timber Trading Director, Trevor Mudd will be taking on the challenge in an old Mercedes C250. The rules state that the car should not have cost more than £500 and more effort must be put in dressing the car and crew rather than making sure the engine works.

Stuart and Trevor have stuck by the rules and purchased the car for a measly £147. Starting from Thursday 15th September the route will take the team through eight European countries before arriving in Monte Carlo three days later having completed a number of challenges along the way.

Stuart Campbell commented: “The Rainy Day Trust does fantastic work in supporting those that have worked in our industry and we’re really looking forward to taking part in the Vado Rally to raise money and help them continue their work. We’d like to say a big thank you to the customers, suppliers and colleagues who have already made donations.”

The Rainy Day Trust provides support and financial grants to people who have worked in the UK’s home improvement industries when times are tough. To find out more visit www.rainydaytrust.org.uk.
