Four Wheels Around - A Road Trip from the UK to South Africa

In February 2009 we are setting off on the trip of a lifetime from Brighton, E-Sussex, UK to South Africa. Furthermore, we are raising money for the British Red Cross along the way. This blog will cover our preparation until we leave and our adventures whilst we are on the road.

Sponsoring Four Wheels Around:
There are a number of ways that you can get involved in the Four Wheels Around venture. Furthermore, by helping us you will not only be supporting Four Wheels Around but also the British Red Cross.
(Above: An example of a vehicle complete with roof tent, we aim to have something similar on our trip.)

How to get involved:
The most important way that you can get involved is through sponsoring us. We are trying to raise £10 000 for the British Red Cross during this trip. We will do this through fundraising events, donations from friends/family and hopefully corporate sponsorship. To sponsor us please visit our 'justgiving' page which is already up and running on:

Alternatively please contact Katie or Alex via email - to discuss sponsorship or for more information.

Aside from sponsorship, in order for Four Wheels Round to take place we are happy to accept help in the form of gifts or money off equipment that we will need on the journey. We are currently preparing for the trip and researching into equipment that we will need. We are planning to use a 4WD for the journey. We want to adapt the vehicle so that it is suitable for life on the road. We need a number of different pieces of equipment to do this. For example, roof tents and other camping equipment, water/fuel tanks, roof racks and satellite navigation/GPRS systems are just a few of the things we are currently researching. We hope that through approaching leisure/camping/adventure and outdoor equipment suppliers that some will beable to offer us gifts or vouchers as a form of sponsorship.

What our sponsors will get in return:
* Their product/logo will be advertised with us on our vehicle en-route throughout our journey.
* The company and their product/logo and generous support will be acknowledged in any literature produced in relation to this journey.
* We will provide regular updates on our progress through Facebook pages, and this blog to further publicise this trip. This blog will have its own page dedicated to all our sponsors.
* We are also keen to generate great media interest into this venture, we will offer local, national and international media the chance to highlight and follow our progress throughout our journey, in any publicity our sponsors will be gratefully acknowledged.

If you have any questions regarding sponsorship or the above incentives please do not hesitate to contact either one of us.
