VADO Rally 2018

VADO Rally 2018
BMF will be supporting the Rally for the third consecutive year in 2018. This year the BMF team entering will be John Newcomb, Oz Bham, James Spillane (BMF) and Mike Tattam (Lakes Bathrooms). This year the Rally challenge is to trek through Copenhagen, Namur, Amsterdam, Lüneburg and Malmo in a road-legal car (worth under £500) in just 4 days! To top it off each day we will be wearing fancy dress as part of the theme given for that day, also completing challenges along the way - all in aid of Variety and the Rainy Day Trust.

The 2018 BMF team. Following the BMF team winning in 2017, this year the BMF team includes our CEO John Newcomb, Oz Bham and James Spillane (BMF) and Mike Tattam from Lakes Bathrooms. Our target is to raise a minimum of £15,000 towards the purchase of a sunshine coach for Variety. Many thanks for your generous support!
