Kidderminster man's charity Triumph in classic car
A CLASSIC car enthusiast from Kidderminster has completed a mammoth-sized road trip for Children with Cancer.
Tim Ward, who is a member of the Club Triumph motorists organisation, took part in the group’s charity motoring event which saw him travel a total of 2,022 miles in 48 hours between last Friday and Sunday.
In his 1974 Triumph GT 6 Mark 3, Mr Ward travelled from London to John O’Groats, then Lands End and back to London. He is aiming to raise about £1,500 for the national charity.
“The road trip was exhausting and exhilarating, it was certainly an experience,” said Mr Ward. “We made it – we got to the end point within the time.
“I have always been interested in all forms of motor sport. I joined the Triumph club six years ago and took part in last year’s event so thought why not do the same this year.
“We are considering doing the run in two years’ time but next year we will do the Club Triumph 10 country run, which will see us drive through 10 European countries in four days.
“I am so happy to have raised funds for Children with Cancer. It is really quite harrowing the number of children likely to get some form of cancer during their adolescence.”
Since 1988, Children with Cancer has raised more than £140 million to help the fight against childhood cancer.
