"Calling all girlies....calling all girlies!

This is not only a plea for us all to get involved in charities near to our hearts but also to have some fun with a capital "F".

It has come to my attention that the Marie Curie charity who do some fantastic stuff in the way of helping terminal patients are trying to raise more money. This fund raiser is in the form of ladies getting to drive some pretty big vehicles.....fire engines, buses, trucks, diggers, etc

Now me for one am very excited about this as I have always wanted to do that and I will be able to raise money too at the same time.....sorry, but my mum is currently in a Marie Curie hospice so I am very passionate about fund raising for this charity!

I did this about four years ago, and it was a scream.

Would recomend it to anyone.
Loads of fun and for a good charity.

Problem is, it IS a competition.
I've done advanced driving in my time.
The Advanced driving group I was with put in a team. And we won. Very easily.
So we're banned from doing it again. :D

But if you want a go in a 40 ton truck, or an army tank, here's your chance.
Loads of vehicles to choose from.

[/SIZE]Awwwwww.......I have been rendered quiet and it don't happen too often I can tell you! Many, many thanks for all your words of support!

I have so far in the last 24 hours gathered in 5 recruiteeeees to come and join me.....they are all family members but you wait till I get back to work......I'll be waiting for 'em as they drop their kids off in the playground! I know for a fact a lot of girlies at work will join me, they are my "gang" and we have been known to do all sorts of odd stuff (don't ask!!) so roll on the end of August!!!

I hope to do the Paddock Wood challenge on Sat 25th September.....anyone who wants to join in will be welcomed with opened arms!

At the end of the day I just wanna drive all them vehicles but not too sure about the tank! What with my arthritic hip and large wart on the end of my nose they will need a hoist to get me in then out again....might pass of that one!

Let me at the fire engine and juggernaught.....and the milk float....oh and the digger....now that JCB looks interesting.......I JUST WANNA DRIVE THEM ALL!!!!

Minnie Mouse,

I think this is a GR8 charity.

I can't take part, cause of the reasons already stated. :(

But I'd love to lend my support. :)

pm me the details and I'll sponsor you or your team £10. ;)

Maybe, just maybe I'll inspire some other donations.

Come on guys, this maybe you, your mom, daughter, wife or anyone close to you that will benifit from the wonderfull support this charity provides.

The condition is Minnie, is I want to see the photographic evidence on a thread. DEAL! :D
