YOU’RE never too young to test your artistic talents and join in the year’s craziest on the road charity fundraiser!
Bangers and Cash is back and schools, colleges or community groups are being invited to compete and create a design that could see their artwork displayed all the way from Sheffield to Germany.
South Yorkshire’s youth homeless charity Roundabout launched its Bangers and Cash challenge in 2018, raising £96,000 as supporters drove from Sheffield to Monte Carlo in the whackiest road trip of the year.
All the participating vehicles had their bonnets decorated with unique works created specially by local professional artists, all of which were later exhibited and auctioned in support of Roundabout.
Now Bangers and Cash is back on the road for 2020 with a new route covering four days, six countries and 894 miles as competitors head for the finish line in the German city of Munich.
And in a fresh twist, the organisers are looking for young artistic talent to join the professionals in creating one of the bonnet designs that will be seen across Europe.
The winning design will be brought to life through the campaign’s Art Co-ordinator, Laura Kennedy.
And there are many other ways in which the charity’s young supporters can get involved in the Bangers and Cash adventure.
“Just pledge to raise a minimum of £500 to support this unique event and you you will be paired with one of the Bangers and Cash teams,” explained Roundabout’s Emily Bush.
“Once registered, we will send you your very own Fundraising Pack which is full of ideas of how your school or college can smash your target, and make a difference to some of the most vulnerable young people in our region.
“We will be with you for every mile of your journey with us and we will be able to give you lots of hints, tips, guides and materials to maximise your fundraising.”
Bangers and Cash sets off from Sheffield on September 10 2020, by which time the competing teams of three will each have paid a registration fee and then raised at least £2,000.
Adding to the difficulty of the adventure, each team is allowed to spend no more than £650 on their vehicle.
Schools, colleges and community groups wanting to learn more about Bangers and Cash and how to get involved should contact Emily Bush at Roundabout on 0114 253 6753 or mail: firstname.lastname@example.org
