Local Company Sponsors World Record Attempt

Local Company Sponsors World Record Attempt Local Company Sponsors World Record Attempt to Run across the Kalahari Desert

Background: A team of 4 university students, headed by brothers Harry and Toby Mossop is undertaking a massive expedition involving driving a Land Rover Defender the length of the African continent from Alexandria to Cape Town. http://www.justgiving.com/africandescent

But that's not all!

As part of this fund raising activity, they are planning to enter the Guiness Book of Records by running across the Kalahari Desert, as a relay. This is the equivalent of a half marathon, every day, for eight days !

Money is being raised for Tusk Trust and Help for Heroes.

As part of their commitment to raise as much money as possible for their selected charities they have been looking for corporate sponsorship.

Witney company Meech International has been happy to help and there will be a press call and photo opportunity of the boys receiving their cheque. The boys will arrive in their “modified-for-conditions” Land Rover.

Opportunities will be available for interviews with the boys and Chris Francis, Managing Director of Meech. Tim Jackson, a Director of Tusk Trust will also be there to support the boys and will be available for interview.
