It’s not just about the adventure, the Mongol Rally is also a charity event. We will raise at least £1000 (and hopefully more!), with at least £500 going to the official charity Cool Earth. You can reach our fundraising page here.
Cool Earth is an environmental charity that works in partnership with indigenous communities.
The charity only protects rainforest that without intervention will be destroyed within the next 18 months.
Cool Earth works strategically, protecting forest that acts as a barrier to a wider landscape.
The charity spends just 10% of your donation on admin and governance making sure as much as possible goes to project areas.
Through working with local people Cool Earth makes sure conservation goes hand in hand with better livelihoods.
In addition to Cool Earth, we be raising money for Macmillan cancer support:
We want to reach and improve the lives of everyone living with cancer and to inspire millions of others to do the same.
There are 2.5 million people living with cancer in the UK today, and as more people live longer with their cancer, this number is set to grow to 4 million by 2030. We want to make sure we can provide support to everyone who needs it, to help people affected by cancer feel more in control of their lives.
It’s a big task and we can’t do it alone. But there are lots of ways you can get involved and help us achieve our goal, from fundraising, to volunteering and campaigning. Together we are all Macmillan.
