Our chief executive, Simone Enefer-Doy, is halfway through her epic 3,000 mile road trip which has seen her visit landmarks across the country in order to raise funds for the work Lifelites does with children in hospices.
She is attempting to travel to 48 different landmarks around England, Wales and the Crown Dependencies of Jersey, Guernsey and the Isle of Man in just 15 days, and has called on Freemasons, classic car clubs and other volunteers to provide a weird and wonderful variety of transport to get her to each landmark.
The challenge, Lift for Lifelites returns, follows the inaugural challenge in 2018, where she raised over £100,000.
Simone left our London office on Friday 10 May, and has so far been given lifts in a truly eclectic mix of vehicles in a classic Rolls-Royce, a Tuk Tuk, a Lamborghini, a Harley Davidson Trike, a steam train and a canal boat. They have visited some fantastic locations such as Richmond Castle and the Heights of Abraham and the weather has (mostly) been kind to them.
Simone said: “As always, our wonderful supporters have not disappointed us, coming out en masse to help support the challenge. We continue to be amazed by their generosity and hospitality, and are so grateful for the donations we have been receiving. This money will be life-changing for the life-limited and disabled children we support.”
