Matt Dixon: Help support my 3000 mile journey for families affected by childhood cancer

Posted on August 26, 2015

In 10 days time I’m taking part in a scrap car challenge, 4 blokes, in two cars travelling 3000 miles from Leeds to Venice in 6 days.

All of the expense of the rally, accommodation fuel etc etc  has been paid for by us the drivers meaning every penny raised will go direct to the Candleighters.

Candlelighters is an awesome charity that support families affected by childhood cancer. They do not receive a penny from government and rely solely on donations from the public.


We still need a little help with reaching our £10000 target. We’ve managed to raise £7400 so far which is truly awesome but we would like just a little more 😊

Please can you help us by donating anything you can afford to our just giving page… Please remember to press the ‘gift aid’ tab as this will add 25% to your donation.

Please share this post and help us. Thank you.
