By: Laura Hennahane   •   October 16, 2017


Wetherby is delighted to have supported Milford Building Supplies for this year’s 2017 Pavestone Rally Challenge. Every pound raised throughout this event has been equally divided between two well deserving charities, Teenage Cancer Trust and The Rainy Day Trust.

The rules were simple, entrants were tasked to buy a road-legal car for under £500 (the cheaper the car, the more fun!), dress it up and hit Europe’s greatest roads and cities for 4 days to Monte Carlo. Throughout the Rally, the teams had a series of challenges to complete and all four days were spent in fancy dress.
