On Thursday 19th September Alastair Shaw, the local estate agent with offices in Mevagissey and Gerrans on the Roseland Peninsula, will be taking part in a rally, organised by St Austell Round Table, to Rome via nine different countries over five days to raise money for charity.
He will be leaving from the Cornwall Hotel in St Austell in a 1995 rally themed red Audi with over 80 other old cars starting with a procession of cars through St Austell High Street and then on to Dover where he will cross the English Channel and then tour down through France, Belgium, Netherlands, Germany, Austria, Liechtenstein, Switzerland and finishing in Rome, Italy on day five.
This will raise money for Bosom Buddies, Marie Curie, Cornwall Hospice Care and the Cornwall Air Ambulance.
He is also raising sponsorship money for Little Harbour which is a children’s hospice at Porthpean and anyone wanting to sponsor him can do so by emailing firstname.lastname@example.org or by calling 01872 580101.
Alastair would like to thank Audi, Tresillian for all their help in getting the car prepared for the long journey which will total some 3,000 miles.
