Dorset to the Desert

a trip by Tania Ballett
From: March 28th 2015
Until: April 11th 2015

For 12 days, 3 cars that have been purchased for under £700 each will travel from Shaftesbury to Mhamid in Southern Morocco and back, undertaking various challenges and fundraising along the way!
We've joined together to raise money for two great charities - Cancer Research UK and Maggies House - in memory of our dear friend Chris Bray. Every single penny raised goes directly to the charities as all costs, such as cars, equipment, fuel, food, accommodation, etc are to be paid for by the individual teams themselves. Donate at https://www.justgiving.com/teams/dorset-to-the-desert and keep up to date with our progress here, or on our FB page https://www.facebook.com/dorsettothedesert
