Hi my name is Dudley Rae and I have set up an organisation called Viking Warriors, which aims to select a number of charities each year, then have a lot of fun raising money and awareness for them!
Before I go any further I would like to tell you a little bit about myself and why I have decided to do this….
I am 32 years old and have a wife and three beautiful children. I have worked all my life until a few years ago when I suffered not one, but two brain tumours. This caused me to lose complete eyesight in my left eye, and a significant loss in my right eye, so now I am registered blind. I was told I only had a year to live, as I am sure you can imagine this news was absolutely devastating to me and my family. We received the help and support of a number of charities and other organizations that gave me the strength, so that I managed to beat the odds! After several different types of treatment I came out the other end. Yes, my life is now completely different because of my eyesight, but if the support of these charities wasn’t there, I truly believe I would not have made it!
So I have set up this organisation “VIKING WARRIORS” to help raise money for these and other charities, because they are such good causes and people need them.
I am asking you to join me in my exciting journey and help me raise money and awareness for these charities.
2016 chosen charities are:
1. Torbay Holiday Helpers Network. (Providing holidays for sick children and their families)
2. Think Amy – The Drive Safe for Life Education Programme.
We have arranged to go to lots of big events including the Torbay Airshow. We are also going to Screen On The Green for 25 days and MTV Crashes Plymouth. We are focussing on several car shows and events, because we are leading up to our involvement in the Motoscape Car Rally. This event means we are going to be traveling through 12 different countries from Torquay to Prague, a distance of over 3000 miles there and back, and all in a car that can cost no more than £300. I have two professional drivers and myself as the navigator.
I need to clarify that this is NOT a race, we are looking to raise awareness for the Safe Driving Charity Think Amy, we want young people to see that you can have fun in a car “Safely”.
We have a number of sponsorship opportunities, ranging from only £35 up to £350, for which we are giving your company a chance to have its logo on our car. We have got an in house designer and printer so there is no hassle, you do not need to organize anything, all we need is your company’s logo.
Throughout the summer of 2016 we will be taking this car to shows, festivals, and of course the main event in September. We will be using social media and local press/radio to promote this adventure, and you’ll be promoting your company and doing a great thing for charity!
If you would like to sponsor us or require any more information please don’t hesitate to give me a call or send me an email.
