Convoy for Heroes - Easter weekend 2011 - April 23 to 24

Discussion in 'Charities and Welfare' started by sunami, Feb 12, 2011.

Welcome to the Army Rumour Service, ARRSE

The UK's largest and busiest UNofficial military website.

The heart of the site is the forum area, including:

  1. CONVOY for HEROES is an attempt to break the Guinness World Record™ for the longest Land Rover convoy, previously set at Towcester race course in 2004. We aim to have a convoy of 500 or more Land Rovers under the conditions set by Guinness World Records™

    It’s all about the Land Rover community doing its bit for those who have done their bit for us: men and women injured while serving in Afghanistan and Iraq. All profits from the event will go to the charity Help for Heroes.

    The event is being held over the Easter weekend 2011 - April 23 to 24 - and, if camping, you will be able to get in from Friday afternoon and don’t need to be on the way home until Monday. So, no days off school for the kids.

    It is being held at the Heritage Motor Centre in Gaydon, Warwickshire. This is a very centrally located location and easily accessible from the motorway network.

  2. I'm going, looking forward to it.


    The H4H 4x4 European Rally 2011 will have a stand there.

    The 2010 event managed to raise £126,000 pounds.

    £126,000 would buy a permanent property in Spain for Holidays4Heroes and make a huge difference to us begging or paying for properties
     
  4. Spanish Dave,

    Check PM's
     
  5. Apparently Pete ‘The Joker’ Scholey is doing a book signing & Pete Winner is giving a talk on the storming of the Iranian Embassy, so we might find out who was the third man. :)
     
  6. They're up to just over 210 entrants now. Hopefully, they will find another 50 or so before Easter.
     
  7. Who would "own" the property though since hols4Heroes isn't a registered charity?
     
  8. They've got 265 landies now, with maybe some extra SAS ones turning up but they're not sure atm. The old record is 260 the organiser of the last record got in touch early on and asked if he could help with this one attempt too. They would like 300 entrants in case people drop out or can't attend for other reasons.

    Your help if you can is appreciated,
     
  9. Convoy for Heroes is at Easter 2011 in support of H4H. Entries are closed now, watch out for the result soon. Details here Convoy for Heroes

    They have 360 entrants now! It was meant to be 350, but a few more came out of the woodwork. The old record is 260. Let's hope everyone turns up and they get the record.
