They will then drive from Swadlincote to Edinburgh to London to Cardiff to Swadlincote.

In each city the car must be photographed next to the national football stadium. It is a staged rally over 3 days covering a distance of 1000 miles. The winner claiming the first '6 C's' trophy.

Why are we doing it?

To raise funds to help FAP Gene Support Group raise awareness of their existence and to aid the running of support sessions with both sufferers and their families

This rare genetic disease has afflicted the family of a past member of Swadlincote Round Table and the fledgling support group is entirely self-funded by some sufferers themselves.
