Hunstanton Round Table members have an adventurous itinerary planned for their first international charity road trip.
Seventeen members wearing fancy dress and travelling in decorated cars left on Wednesday, aiming to travel to Munich in Germany and back in five days.
Clocking up 2,000 miles along the way, they also aim to raise thousands of pounds for Scotty’s Little Soldiers.
After travelling through France and Belgium, the Round Tablers plan a stop at Nurburg in Germany including a time trial test round the town’s renowned race track.
In Munich, they look forward to a day of rest and refreshment at the famous Oktoberfest beer festival.
The vehicles have been transformed into, among others, the General Lee from the Dukes of Hazzard TV show, an NYPD patrol car, a “Jaws” car, a Mad Max Interceptor and a DeLorean.
Joe Bates said the cars were bought for £400 each, made roadworthy and customised at members’ own expense. He said: “The people taking part pay all the expenses out of their own pockets. Everything we raise in sponsorship and donations goes to the charity we are supporting.”
The vehicles’ progress can be followed at www.hunstantonroundtable.com and on twitter @HunstantonRT. The cars will also be on show at the Round Table’s annual clifftop bonfire display on Saturday, October 12.
The road trip is the third organised by the Hunstanton branch. Previous trips in the UK supported premature babies and young carers in West Norfolk.
