Jon & Craig’s Screwball Rally

Jon and a friend bought a yellow MX5 and joined 79 other cars on a budget-car road trip through France, Belgium, the Netherlands, Germany, Poland and the Czech Republic.

Jon’s daughter, Amelia, was born in March 2011 with only half a heart.  The defects in her heart mean that it will never be “fixed” and so far has endured four operations (the first was the day after she was born, the most recent in July 2018) to create and maintain a new circulation around the outside of her heart, allowing her single ventricle to serve her body more effectively.

In September 2018, Jon and Craig joined 79 other cars on a budget-car road-trip through France, Belgium, the Netherlands, Germany, Poland and the Czech Republic (and back!).  They bought a 23 year old Yellow Mazda MX5 for the occasion, and dressed her up to make her look exactly like the Fiat Cinquecento from The Inbetweeners!

Jon and Craig decided to very kindly use this fab road-trip to do a bit of fundraising for Little Hearts Matter… and raised nearly £1500!

We’d like to say a massive thank you to Jon and Craig for so kindly thinking of us, and for raising such an amazing amount for children with half a heart.
