Veterans Banger Rally

Many of those veterans taking part in the Banger Rally are doing so not just to raise funds for others but go on a pilgrimage and” bury old ghosts”

We all have been through difficult times in over the last year and it’s  good to see to see our military once again stepping up to the plate, we know that many of our Military Charities have come under severe restraints in the services they could provide, Combat Stress has had to cut back on its services.

It possible that our NHS staff who will need help with this

Find out more about the Veterans Rally we will be undertaking in September (subject to travel restrictions regarding Covid), however we will undertake this rally whenever we can!!

Some of my team are disabled however we have bought an old campervan which is ideal it does however need some remedial welding to replace old seals (we have them) and a bit of other work and will need an MOT

The principle sponsorship we need is really to put our Campervan back on the road, we will have to fund everything else from our own resources

We cannot use Charity Monies !

You might just want to make a donation, or sponsor our team which means your Company will be featured on the vehicle and seen in the media coverage.

I have been associated with all of these military charities for many years, and at this time been aware of the severe effect the pandemic has on their funding, and of course many other Charities.

I have recently spent time with serving forces and seen the fantastic support they are providing, Testing Centres, Marshalling, Delivering Supplies and the Medical teams from all three services in hospitals and inoculation centres.

We shall remember them all.

Last Throw of the Dice

In aid of Combat Stress and other charities If you want your donation to go to a particular charity please let us know.


“Banger Rally” is as the name suggests, is an organised event, bringing together Veterans from all areas of the Armed Forces, that share a common goal of driving a clapped out banger across Europe in a bid to raise funds for charity.

The older and more knackered the vehicle, the better. Cover the rust and cracks with stickers and gaffa tape and away we go….
