‘It’s going to be a challenge but also good fun and it’s all for a very good cause,’ said Ed. ‘The event could take us literally anywhere in Britain. Last year it finished in Dorset and another year drivers ended up in the Scottish Highlands.’

Tony and Ed, who will share the driving, hope to raise £1,000 for the charity and are seeking support from local companies and individuals to help reach their target. Any corporate sponsor can have their logo on the team’s Land Rover for the challenge.
