A Kent charity is looking for teams and sponsors to get involved with its four day car race challenge to Rome.

On Saturday 14th September teams will set out for the birthplace of Western civilisation, for four days of fundraising.

Teams will pledge to raise £1,500 towards the work of Martha Trust, which looks after people with profound disabilities.

The Martha Trust organises ferry crossings, accommodation and flights home.

To make it even more challenging, the team’s cars must cost no more than £200 and be taxed, insured and carry a full MOT.

Julie Gayler, from the Martha Trust is keeping her team’s theme for Rome or Bust a closely guarded secret, but say they'll be unveiling their car and their costumes at events across Kent later in the year.
