Screwball Rally - back safe and sound!The Aldingbourne Country Centre was delighted to welcome GG the car and David Adams, Martin Curry and Simon Lush, partners at Henry Adams.
The team joined the Screwball Rally in which they had to purchase a car for under £750 and then drive it to Lake Como and back over three days raising money for charity. The Aldingbourne Trust were thrilled to be chosen as their charity of choice and nearly £2,000 was raised towards the new Visitor Centre at the Aldingbourne Country Centre.
They journeyed through 8 countries, through sun and snow, sleeping in a tent each night. Martin Curry, a partner at Henry Adams stated ‘We were looking for a new way to help raise money for the Aldingbourne Trust and happily for us the Screwball Rally turned into a great adventure travelling right across Europe. We all thoroughly enjoyed the five day challenge, well, except for the camping and a few nerves about the car’s condition - but then it did get us back to Chichester, just about in one piece.
‘Having a great welcome from our friends at the Aldingbourne Trust and seeing the real progress the charity is making with the Country Centre has definitely made it all worthwhile.’
Sue Livett, Managing Director of the Aldingbourne Trust said ‘We are so grateful to Henry Adams for all their support over the last two years. They have helped us raise around £20,000 as part of their corporate support – a fantastic amount.’
The Aldingbourne Trust supports adults with learning disabilities to live fulfilled and independent lives. The new Visitor Centre at the Aldingbourne Country Centre will enable the Trust to support more people with disabilities in training and employment whilst having some fabulous facilities to offer visitors including a new café, super conference facilities and a new shop.
