Monte Carlo Madness raises funds for the Martha Trust


CASINO ROYALE: Cars arrive in Monte-Carlo to visit historic sites

A fearless team of fundraising enthusiasts returned from an 800-mile round trip from Dover to Monte Carlo in just four days.

The annual motoring challenge was to raise money for the Martha Trust, a charity that supports people with profound disabilities in Kent and Sussex. The trust has run the crazy car fundraiser for 13 years, and in that time has seen 91 cars and 215 participants join in the fun raising £287,000 in sponsorship.

This year the final destination was Monte Carlo on the French Riviera, but the race has already taken participants to Barcelona, ​​Florence and Rome.

Julie Gayler, CEO of the Hastings-based charity, and member of ‘The Roulettes’ team described Monte Carlo Madness as their best challenge yet. She said: “We had a fantastic time, it was our biggest automotive challenge yet.”

“The trip was amazing with two great stops in Dijon and Avignon. The camaraderie was great and most importantly we hope to have raised £45,000 in sponsorship when all funds are in place.”

Keith, one of the Monte Carlo Madness attendees, said: “Solley’s Farms Ice Cream were thrilled and proud to be part of an amazing group who all traveled as part of Monte Carlo Madness.

“Not only is the cause an outstanding charity, but we met some great people and the social life was great – I would recommend it to any local business looking to combine fun and worthwhile fundraising for the community. Brilliant”

The team embarks on its 13th crazy car challenge for Monte Carlo

Monte Carlo Madness would not have been possible without the generous support of all participants and their sponsors, in particular this year’s main sponsors – CH Staffing Solutions Ltd, Nick Cunningham Plumbing and Heating Engineers, R&R Environmental, Sota Solutions, Superior Care and their sponsor channel of the Eurotunnel crossing Le Shuttle.

Martha is delighted to announce that her 2023 car challenge will return to the popular destination of Barcelona in ‘Bonkers in Barcelona’.
