BRAVO 2 ISLANDS MINI RALLY TOUR. 20TH – 30 TH MAY 2022

Sam, one of our Trustees,  is taking part in the BRAvo Islands 2 lslands Mini Rally Tour to raise awareness of Breast Cancer and much needed finds to support our charity work to support Breast Cancer Patients.

20th – 30th May 2022

 The BRAvo Rally Islands 2 Islands Tour will be raising awareness of breast cancer and connecting people from the beautiful Isles of Scilly which lies twenty seven miles off the Cornish Coast in the far west of the UK all the way to Stornoway on the  far flung reaches of the Outer Hebrides off the rugged West Coast of Scotland.  The ladies will make their way driving their mini, making mini miles matter.

 The girls will cover the length of Great Britain travelling from the Mermaid Breast Care Unit at Royal Cornwall Hospital, Treliske, Truro, over remote rural areas which will include Bodmin Moor, Dartmoor, up through England and the stunning Peak District National Park, The Yorkshire Dales, The Northumberland National Park and the Pennines, eventually reaching Scotland driving to Edinburgh and Glasgow and on to Oban via Loch Lomand and the Trossachs National Park and finally reaching Oban in preparation to set sail for the Outer Hebrides.

 The final leg of the BRAvo Rally will see the girls drive their mini onto the first ferry which will take them from mainland Scotland through the Sound of Mull to the Outer Hebrides starting out in the far south of the islands, arriving on Barra.  From here they will make their way by ferry over to Eriskay, and up through South Uist, Benbecula and North Uist.  The next ferry crossing will take the mini from North Uist over to Harris and Lewis before finally arriving at our finale destination of Stornoway, the capital of the Outer Hebrides where we hope to make a final visit to Stornoway hospital before we depart to the mainland  in preparation to return to Cornwall.  We will make our way home driving over the dramatic landscape of Glencoe, past Ben Nevis and down through the Lake District and finally back to Cornish territory 10 days later.

The BRAvo Rally Islands 2 Islands Tour will travel over 1800 miles with four ferry crossings totalling nearly 10 hours whilst raising awareness of breast cancer as we go.  We will make mini miles matter especially in these rural and isolated areas of our beautiful  British landscape.

Our aim is to continue where we left off and reach a positive outcome together by highlighting the importance of routine mammograms and early detection of breast cancer.
