Road To Mongolia 2016 - Charity Rally Sponsored by Barbers & Groomers

 

Road To Mongolia 2016 sponsored by Barbers & GroomersWe are delighted to partake in Road To Mongolia 2016 - a Charity Rally to Mongolia organized by Go Help.

Go Help is a charity that organises the rallies to Mongolia, they work on a number of projects out there, ranging from mobile libraries to the ‘Child Protection Programme’ with Save the Children. People from all over the world take part in this mad adventure every year, with the aim of raising funds for chosen charities and donating the car at the finish line in Ulan Bator, the capital of Mongolia.

This year we are proud to sponsor the team,  Ian T Boyle and  Haven Tsang. As professional cameramen, they intend to document the race as participants in the rally with interviews and stories from the other ralliers, intertwined with our own story, adventure and whatever hardships they encounter along the journey. All the proceeds of the documentary will go to their chosen charity, the RLNI.

The van, sponsored by Barbers & Groomers started it's journey today and we will be posting the journey progress on this page- so come back to check on the lads!

Day 20 -The Tragic End Of Journey for Betty

A message from Ian T Boyle: " 

"It's with a heavy heart that I must report Betty the beloved Citron Berlingo is broken, will less than a thousand km to go. We hit a rock which put a hole in the oil tank, and that's where the trouble began. We out of the rally but our hosts tonight the mechanic who towed us tried to fix her and is currently our host for tonight is feeding us 40% Mongolia vodka so ever cloud... From the bottom of my heart can I thank everyone who supported us from donating to us either money, time and skills for projects in Mongolia. If I've learned one thing from this experience it's the bottomless kindness of the human heart (and that all Russian drivers are nutters)

So from me Haven Tsang and Betty thank you"
