The Big Learner Relay for Children in Need
The Big Learner Relay raises funds for BBC Children in Need
Local Havant-based driving instructors at Lloyds Driver Training has been busy fundraising for BBC Children in Need. The instructors have been taking part in ‘The Big Learner Relay for Children in Need’. The event sees driving instructors across the country get together to raise money for Children in Need.
Driving instructor Louise Walsh is the inspiration behind ‘The Big Learner Relay for Children in Need’. The two-week event, now in its ninth year, features driving instructors and pupils across the country all getting together to raise money for Children in Need.
Andy and Michelle were happy to be involved with the fundraising. They said: "Local charities are very important to us and we are happy to support them by taking part in ‘The Big Learner Relay for Children in Need' which is such a good cause."
On the last day of the relay which falls on BBC Children in Need appeals day will relay to our grand finale destination to complete a lap of the fabulous Goodwood Race Circuit.
12 days, 3000+ miles, over 170 lead driving lessons and many thousands of instructors and pupils joining the convoy! After many months of planning, the route will cover in the region of 3,000 miles and driving instructors have been preparing to take part.
Each instructor will come up with ways to raise funds in whichever way works for them, their pupils and their businesses. Some are getting together and are going to do something as a local group, some are working with local driving instructor associations, and some are just doing things within their franchises or on their own. Ideas so far include sponsored lessons, fancy dress lessons, PJs for Pudsey and car washes.
