Come across the Scally Rally?
It’s the ultimate banger rally! Instead of needing a heavily customised Â£150k Bentley Continental GT to enter, the the Scally Rally requires you to enter with a car that you bought for under Â£100.
We — that is, the mobile industry — are being represented in the race by Mike Taylor, Head of Media and Entertainment for mobile aggregator WIN Plc.
You may or may not know that I have signed up to take part in this yearâ€™s â€œScally Rally â€“ Road to Riminiâ€ in a few weeks time, which is essentially a (very) poor manâ€™s Gumball Rally, whereby 100 teams drive from Calais to Rimini over 4 days as a novel way of raising awareness and funds for charity… in a car that cost Â£100 when purchased!
We soon discovered that Â£100 on ebay buys you very little that actually works, so we ended up buying a complete non runner and spent the next few months underneath it re-attaching itâ€™s vital organs.
Please have a look at the blogs on our website www.myspace.com/woodyhoodies for photos of what we created and fundraising updates.
It’s all for good causes too. Mike continues:
I am therefore unashamedly appealing for donations to our chosen charity, Adoption UK, a support agency for adoptive children and parents. They say charity starts at home, and seeing as most of us spend more time at work than at home, I thought this seemed a logical place to start!
The easiest way to donate is to visit our just giving page at www.justgiving.com/woodyhoodies
Mike, we’ll shortly be posting a Mobile Industry Review donation.
Don’t come back without lots of photos… and can we get a live text update service please?
