Well…we made it! And not only did we make it to Monte Carlo without any breakdowns or punctures, our team won joint first prize for our car design! (The less said about the spanner award the better…!)
Alongside the amazing team in the Martha Trust support car, ‘Knapp To The Future’ were joined by ‘Baywatch Dads’, ‘The Good The Bad & The Ugly’, ‘Ghostbusters’, ‘Grans On The Run’, ‘Hawaii 3 Oh’ and the ‘Scooby Don’ts’. Our convoy of eccentric vehicles drew a lot of attention on our journey down to the French Riviera, particularly after the events of sabotage night!
Sadly, Monty & some of his fellow rally cars met an unfortunate end at the scrapyard, however, all was not lost as the proceeds have been put toward the total monies raised.
Thank you to everyone who donated, it is greatly appreciated!
Having a well deserved pit stop at the half way point with the other teams. We have had a smooth journey so far and hope this continues! Despite exceeding our fundraising target we hope to raise as much as possible for this worthy cause and there is still time to donate through the following link: http://bit.ly/2oTayWU All donations, large or small are greatly appreciated!
This weekend ‘Monty’ took to the road for the first time with our fundraising team where he showcased his brand-new look at the Whitstable car show. With a trade stand kindly donated by the shows organisers Classic Music and Motors and with the generosity of the public we managed to exceed our £3,000 minimum fundraising target! We will continue to raise funds and hope to generate as much sponsorship as possible for this worthwhile cause.

September 2017 will see Geoff Davies, Anna Kuske and Garry Jenkins of Ellipta Ltd and Knapp Hicks & Partners Ltd take on the Martha Trust ‘Monte Carlo Madness’ charity car rally. Martha Trust provide vital residential, respite and day care for people with profound physical and multiple learning disabilities and rely heavily on donations.
The concept of the car rally is simple; teams must purchase a vehicle for no more than £200, turn it into an eye-catching masterpiece and successfully drive it from Maidstone to Monte Carlo in 3 days.
Please visit our fundraising page http://uk.virginmoneygiving.com/KnappHicksEllipta2017 for more information and to donate to this worthwhile cause.
It will take our team a lot of determination and plenty of elbow grease – not to mention luck – so we thank you for your kind donations!
In light of recent flash flood events, Ellipta have developed an innovative new approach to the management of flood claims by combining the contents of the new draft British Standard PAS 64 and the less intrusive CIRIA flood repair recommendations, published after a major industry review of the 2007 flood event. This new approach will speed up insurers claims, reduce costs and improve customer satisfaction rates. Please contact us for further details.
