Drive 1,490 miles round the coast of Scotland in four days – that is the challenge seven two-man crews have set themselves this week.

They are due to leave Terrington St Clement Memorial Field just after dawn on Thursday (May 12) in a convoy of Hyundai coupe cars.

This is the latest event to be staged by Terrington St Clement Community Fund and all of the money they raise will go to the Norfolk Hospice, Tapping House.

It is also a case of 'better late than never'. The crews had planned to tackle the Stalvio Pass, in Italy back in 2020 but that adventure stalled because of Covid lockdown.

“It's been a long wait but we were determined not to abandon the idea completely,” said organiser Andrew Hornigold.

“Instead of Europe we have called it the North Coast Rally and are heading for Scotland – and hopefully raising a lot of money for the hospice.”

Once over the border their route will take them via Easter Ross, Caithness, Sutherland and Wester Ross touching the coastal roads as far as possible – and with Community Fund chairman, Mark Wilson, back at home in |Terrington setting them challenges to complete on their way.

When they get back, the cars will be auctioned to raise more money.

Some of the crew members took four of the cars to Tapping House this week for a photoshoot with the hospice finance director John Garrett.
