Showing Support for the 2016 Mongol Rally
The Mongol Rally can be described as the greatest motoring adventures on the planet. Covering 10,000 miles across the mountains and deserts of Europe and Asia, the challenge is clear, not least because of these very simple rules; you are not allowed any back up plan, no set route other than a start and finish point, and it’s all down to just you, your team mate and your tiny run down car!
The Mongol Rally has one key purpose at its heart – saving the world. Each team member has to raise a minimum of £1000 for charity, at least £500 of which goes to the official charity Cool Earth.
At Merson, we are delighted to help 2 of this year’s adventurists, who, after a year of planning have decided to take on this incredible challenge. Andy Parker and Andy Coe, have a long standing friendship, studying together at University they both went on to become vets and have remained firm buddies ever since. Both men wanted to do something for a few charities that are special to them; Scottish Autism, Bloodwise, Cornwall Hospice Care and Pap worth Heart Hospital, and with a shared interest in travel this was the perfect way to do just that.
Their team name ‘Brave One and All’ is represented by a combination of the Scottish and Cornish flags, and to show our support were glad to be able to supply and fit the vinyls to their car free of charge, to help them proudly proclaim their mission.
The Mongol Rally is about getting lost, not sticking to a set plan, and raising plenty of cash, whilst hopefully limping across the finishing line with a car that is battered but full of exciting tales.
As both men embark of this adventure of a lifetime, we look forward to sharing their updates along the way.
In support of their chosen charities the team are accepting donations, so if you would like to contribute, you can do
