Bangers and Cash: Sheffield to Monaco
15th February 2018
From the team behind the Herd of Sheffield comes Bangers and Cash. This is a mobile art exhibition and old banger rally, whereby 40 cars all painted by different artists will take to the road to try and reach Monaco. The cars all have to be less than £650 in value. The charity chosen to benefit from this event is Roundabout, helping young vulnerable people to break the cycle of homelessness in Sheffield. The forecast fund raising target is £200,000.
The bonnets of the cars will be on show in the Winter Garden in August as a visitor attraction. Then up to 40 teams will set off to Monaco in September passing by Brussels, Luxembourg, Strasbourg, Lucerne, Lugano, Como, Monza, Millan and then on to Monaco and finish in Nice. All bonnets will be shipped back to Sheffield and auctioned off in October with the proceeds going to charity.
There hasn’t been an event quite like this before so if you’re interested in pitching a team to help with the fundraising please contact Claire Collingworth – firstname.lastname@example.org
