From North Piddle to Adams Bottom: meet the couple who are taking part in a rude roadtrip to boost hospice
A POOLE woman and her boyfriend are taking part in a sponsored road trip around places with ‘rude’ names to raise money for the hospice that looked after her aunt.
Jessica Mott, 22, is tackling the 734-mile trip with her partner, technical consultant Freddie Jackson, 23, and his brother Adam Ross, 20.
The trio’s journey is inspired by a challenge taken up by the stars of Channel 4 comedy The Inbetweeners.
Among the 20 locations the trio will be taking in during their two-day journey are Titty Ho, North Piddle, Adams Bottom and Old Sodom Lane.
All have to be accessible by car, which has ruled out Dorset’s own Scratchy Bottom near Lulworth, although Jess and Freddie are considering a detour to Shitterton near Bere Regis before travelling to Middlesex to pick up tree surgeon Adam, 20, on March 8.
“Around Christmas we were watching the Inbetweeners roadshow.
“Freddie said: ‘I really want to do that.’ I said: ‘Okay, but why don’t we make it for a good cause?’” explained Jess, of central Poole.
“It took him about two days to find all the places and select the ones we could go to. Some are too rude to print. There are loads more, but we’ve got to keep it so we are able to complete it over a weekend.”
Jess is originally from Ashford in Middlesex and hopes the stunt will raise at least £500 for the Princess Alice Hospice in Esher, Surrey, where her aunt Jackie Eldridge died last year at the age of 47.
During the road trip, which is due to finish in High Wycombe, the trio will be trying to fit in as many visits as possible to cafes and restaurants with naughty names.
“The team at the hospice is amazing and the work they carry out is nothing short of a miracle. Jackie’s death was a huge shock for the whole family, as she died only two months after her diagnosis of lung and bone cancer,” said Jess.
