FIVE friends will make a 2,500-mile trip in an elderly limousine to raise money for the Youth Cancer Trust.

The Limo of Justice will take part in Czecheap – a rally which involves getting to Prague in a car costing no more than £400.

Simon Harder found the car on eBay and donated it via his business, WeSellPoliceCars.com, of Hamworthy.

He will set off on Thursday, May 22 with pals Matt Black (known locally as Piano Man), Shaun Whittle, Roger Wheeler and Paul Dibben.

Their list of sponsors is headed by The Zipyard, which donated £400 to Youth Cancer Trust to have its name put on all four doors.

Simon is confident the 21-year-old Vauxhall Carlton, a former funeral car, should be up to the five-day rally to Prague, against 60 other teams.

The limo was at Poole’s Falkland Square on Saturday to drum up support, and the team had two hours of help from Poole mayor Cllr Phil Eades.

Simon said they were keen to support Youth Cancer Trust, a local charity which provides holidays for young people with cancer from all over the country. We would like to thank The Zipyard for being a major sponsor alongside my company,” he added.

The team have JustGiving and Facebook pages: For more information visit: justgiving.com/thelimoofjustice and facebook.com/thelimoofjustice
