We aid Mongolia's poorer herding families to help sustain livelihoods and way of life

Charity Registration No. 1086778

Story

Ben Baildon and Andrew Craven are taking part in the Mongol Rally - a race from Hype Park in London to Ulan Bator in Mongolia - all in a 1988 Fiat Panda, and in the name of charity, to boot.

It's billed as the greatest adventure race in the world. 10,000 miles through some of the world's most hostile terrain, in a car costing less than a good night out. From Hyde Park in London to Ulan Bator in Mongolia, through 18 countries and 8 time zones - with no sat nav, mobile phones, running water, or hazelnut lattes.

Ling-Ling, our trusty and rusty 4x4 Panda, will celebrate her 20th birthday somewhere, hopefully, in the middle of Kazakhstan.

It's all, thankfully, for charity. We're doing this for the Cambridge Mongolian Disaster Appeal (CAMDA). CAMDA provides grass-roots aid to poorer nomadic herding communities that lost millions of herd animals to wintry extremes. It also targets three essential resources: hay-making, reliable wells, healthy horses. Its aid helps prevent families on the verge of poverty giving up herding for the almost certain poverty of alien city life. It's a good cause - so why don't you sponsor us? It's dead easy.

Cheers!

Andy and Ben
