First donation from Heaven Can Wait I'm Busy

While the Jimnys were being washed, decontaminated and loaded into their containers ready for their four week sea voyage, the home team where in Lymington making a presentation to Save the Children.

It seems a long time ago now, but it's only 8 weeks when Les and the crew were in Bensheim Germany receiving a cheque for 1000 Euros. Money that had been raised by the staff at Suzuki Bensheim in just one week to support The Ultimate Challenge. A brilliant effort and one greatly appreciated by Les and all the crew.


This weekend, in lovely sunshine, Alan Butler a trustee from Heaven Can Wait I'm Busy and the rest of the home supporting team, together with Julian Clegg of BBC Radio Solent and Alun Parry from Suzuki GB, presented that very generous cheque to Janice and Margaret of Save the Children.

As The Ultimate Challenge continue to raise money on a number of fronts we say a huge thank you to Les and all the crew who have made this possible.

You may be wondering what we'll be putting up on the blog while the Jimnys are on the water and Les has a well deserved breather before Stage 4 begins, well keep logging in as Les is going to be feeding us some stories from the journey so far. I'm sure there will be a giggle or two amongst that lot!!
