Mudlarks Garden

What can you do with £300?

Buy the latest tech?

Treat yourself to a weekend away?

Or buy an old car and drive 1,427 km across Europe in aid of charity?

Well, that’s exactly what a team of financial advisers and friends of Paul Butler & Partners are doing in aid of Mudlarks, a local charity that supports adults with learning disabilities and mental health concerns.

The endurance rally is departing from Hertford on the 17th September and will see 6 teams drive across multiple European countries over 4 days whilst tasked with completing secret challenges along the way.

Funds raised for this mystery trip, will be donated to Hertford based charity Mudlarks who offer therapy, training and work experience to 161 adults each week living with learning difficulties and mental health concerns.

Paul Butler: “This is our 3rd rally across Europe that we have organised in aid of charity and the challenge is not driving over 1,000 km’s, it will be the state of the cars we will be driving!!. We could of course take the easy option and hire reliable cars to drive the distance, but I have challenged my team to buy cars for under £300,  choose a team theme and make the car worthy of a wacky rally.”

And a wacky rally it really will be, we have had themes from previous years including, a makeshift version of the DeLorean from Back to the Future,  and the re-creation of Del Boy’s classic yellow van.

Vic Hobson, Mudlarks: “We could not be more thrilled to be chosen as Paul Butler and Partners charity of choice for their charity rally. How amazing that the team are self-funding this mystery adventure and donating the funds raised to our projects. So many of the people we support love cars and racing, and they will be really excited to cheer the teams off in September. We wish all the teams well and look forward to following their progress across Europe”.
