Plymouth-Banjul Update No.12 – The End!

17 January 2007
They made it! After very little sleep they continued the journey this morning, over the ferry crossing and to Banjul! This was followed by a parade through the town with all the vehicles, and a football match (of which Si scored the first goal!). They can now look forward to a couple of days rest and celebration!

Wilfred will be auctioned on Sunday 28th January and we will let you know how much money Wilfred has raised for the Gambian charities.

Auction update
We finally found out how much Wilfred went for in the local auction to raise money for the Gambian charities. Wilfred raised a fantastic £1,847.82.

That now brings the grand total raised by NomadRush for all the charities in the Gambia and back home to £6273.84

MacMillan Cancer Support £2,349.76
The MS Society £2,076.26
The Gambian charities £1,847.82

Well done Si and Alex for getting the car all the way from Essex to Banjul and all the money you have raised for charity along the way!
