6th August 2016 Coast to Coast Car Tour

Leave a comment

Coast to Coast WebWe had a fantastic couple of days on Karl Edmondsons first Coast to Coast Car Tour at the begining of the month. 13 cars took part and it was a huge success. A huge thank you goes Karl and Tracy who worked tirlessly to make it happen.

Friday night was spent at the Midland Hotel which is fantastic, newly modernised but in keeping with its art deco apperance and after a splendid meal it was an early night for the tour which started straight after breakfast.

On Saturday we participated in the highly successful Coast to Coast event from Morecambe to Scarborough. The weather and the scenery were both amazing which made the 162 mile journey pass by in a flash.

Travelling through the Yourshire Dales and through the North Yorkshire moors was brilliant, indespersed with watering holes such as the Fat Lamb and The Friars Head at Akebar Park before landing in Scarborough for a great buffet and presentation of the prizes.

Bill foley nabbed the Ipad and Karl was presented with a token gift by Michael Ramsey. The important thing though was that we raised much needed funds for Daniel Rainbow’s Neuroblastoma Journey fund raisers,  we raised over £700 for the fund, just by having a great time.

What made it even more special was that Daniel and his family waited patiently for us at the finish line. A great day was had by all.

Below are photos of the event, please feel free to share them, all I ask is that you tell people who you share them with about Daniels fundrainind page at
