Two drivers, two weeks, two rallies, one charity. Welshpool based James Watkins and Wayne Ellis are aiming to raise as much money as possible for the Severn Hospice in a joint effort to raise cash and awareness for this worthy charity.
Last weekend James Watkins competed on the Coracle Stages near Llangurig in a Nissan Micra that was adorned with Severn Hospice Stickers. Despite this being James' first ever gravel rally the 19 year old finished 32nd overall in his Makefast and Rally Marketing backed Nissan Micra.
One week later fellow Welshpool resident Wayne Ellis will contest the Harry Flatters Rally over the infamous Epynt Military Ranges in his Complete Signs and Graphics backed Peugeot 106 Rallye with two aims in mind. Not only is Wayne hoping to conquer Epynt, having never finished in his previous five attempts, but the talented driver also wants to raise as much money as possible for the charity at the same time!
My grand father is currently being looked after by the Severn Hospice and I am really impressed with the level of care that they provide so I would like to try and give a little something back!
People can make donations by visiting www.justgiving.com/coraclerally09 or by coming along to Epynt this Sunday and making your donations in the service park, where there will be a collecting bucket.
