Felicia's Fantastic Fundraiser for Josh Parker

My friends and I have decided to undertake a roadtrip across Europe from Calais to Istanbul in memory of one of our friends who sadly died at the end of last year.

Josh Parker was 21 when he died, having suffered with pulmonary hypertension for his entire life. Josh was lucky enough to survive for a short while after he was released from hospital, and spend time with his incredibly supportive family. During this time, he wrote a bucket list which included a European Road Trip of numerous cities and destinations - something he never managed to complete. We intend to visit as many of these as possible!

We intend to travel over 4,500 miles across Europe on a round trip to Istanbul in July 2020 in 'Felicia', our gorgeous Skoda Felicia to raise money for the Pulmonary Hypertension Trust based at the Royal Brompton hospital

We challenged ourselves to use a budget of £500 for a car, make it 'rally ready' and to do what Josh never managed to do. We've already bought the car, and intend to spend the next six months giving it some TLC and prepping it for our journey which will include custom painted body panels by all of Josh's friends and family, and all of the equipment we will need for camping the entire journey.

The entire project and journey will be self-funded, so please give generously to the page as every donation will go to the Pulmonary Hypertension Association, who put their money  towards research that will reduce the time taken to diagnose Pulmonary Hypertension in children, research potential cures, and provide support for those who have lost a family member to this dreadful disease.

Alternatively, if there is a service that you can provide such as advertising, publicity or supplies that will help us on our journey please do not hesitate to get in contact!
