An urgent plea :(

Hi all, this is a last ditch SOS in the hope someone out there might be able to help. Myself and two friends are cycling through France for charity leaving this Sunday (16th sept), returning Tuesday 25th sept. Everything is booked and paid for but our driver has pulled out. We desperately need someone to drive the car between stages, all hotels, ferry and car hire will be paid for (by us, not the charity) so it wont cost you a penny apart from your food and drink. My friend lost his wife to cancer a couple of years ago and I had testicular cancer last year, we just wanted to raise some money for our local cancer hospice, try and put something back
I'm trying everything to find someone, we're aged 30-55, a nice group of lads, it's essentially a free holiday for the driver.
My just giving page is*http://www.justgiving.com/Che-Dixon1 which has a little more info but please DON'T anyone donate as without a driver it's not possible to do it. I know this sounds crazy and I doubt we'll find anyone at such short notice, just recent events have shown maybe us petrol heads can help each other
Thanks
Che

Hi mate,

I would love to help you but no way of getting out of work.

Would you like me to post on other forums I frequent?!

Thanks dxb, I've put it on the CCM forum and r32OC where I'm also a member, if you think it might help and don't mind it woul be appreciated and worth a try? Would just be gutted to have to cancel it, 3 months training down the pan at present, cheers, che

Fingers crossed. These things take some organising (and some bottle) so, like you say, a real shame to have to cancel. Good luck.

Good oppurtunity for someone with some spare time! If all else fails, could you work it so that you and your 2 friends take turns driving X-distance at a time? means it could still go ahead and would make some money rather than not doing it at all.

This is a great opportunity fro someone with a licence and a bit of spare time to go experience something different and do something that counts. If I thought for a second that my wife would let me I'd be all over this.

Please tell us that you got someone to do it che.

We've a couple of maybes thanks guys, it's getting so close now though I fear its not going to happen. I'll keep my fingers crossed but until we have a confirmed yes with details we can confirm the hire car or ferry crossing as they require those details. Panic and many grey hairs have become a theme of the last few days lol. If we get to go I think the cycling will be easy compared to this

I'm really sorry, the hire cars fallen through and with great regret were postponing the ride until next spring. There's too many issues to overcome. Really sorry to mess you around
Thank you to everyone who helped, reposted, contributed and enquired.
