A charity that helps youngsters on the Isle of Wight who have been bereaved is going the extra mile.
A group from the YMCA Children's Bereavement Service is taking part in the Screwball Rally road trip around Europe, between 27 September and 1 October.
They will join 70 other charities on the five day trip covering 1800 miles, which must be completed in a car worth no more than £750.
All teams participating get to choose a theme, Roz Drysdale, Service Administrator said, 'Being the YMCA we chose a Village People theme, it's a bit of fun really. We plan to get out the car at every petrol station, play the YMCA tune and dance to it!'.
It is hoped that they will raise £5000 to help the service offered to children on the Isle of Wight who have been affected by the death of someone important to them. It is believed that 400 Island children and young people are affected every year.
On Saturday 22 September, the team and the car - donated by sponsors FH Winter and Sons, and transformed with colourful rally designs by Signpost Express - will be out in St James' Sqaure in Newport to raise money and awareness of their Europe-wide rally.
