Bridgman & Bridgman: Benidorm or Bust

19 March 2024


Six team members and friends embarked on the famous car rally from Milton Keynes to Benidorm in Spain, to raise money for Perennial.

The 'Rover and Out' team travelled 1400 miles over five days in their £500-budget car through Rouen, Poitiers, Pau and Zaragoza, undertaking various mini challenges along the way. Complete with a “green” themed car and fancy dress costumes. They finished the rally in spectacular style with all flowers and bees intact and even won the grand prize of best car of 2022.

The team worked with the KnitWits (Woolverton Wanderers Branch) who have spent the last month crocheting and knitting a truly magnificent car canopy of flowers, bees and woollen flora to make this journey one to remember. The collective, who work anonymously, will only be photographed in balaclavas (hand knitted) to protect their identities. The group work as yarn bombers and guerrilla knitters in their spare time, bringing colour and joy to the local area one stitch at a time.
