London to Cape Town World Record

Donation protected
The Aim:

Paul Hanson and George Coleman will be attempting to beat the world record of  driving from London to Cape Town. The current record is set at 10 days, 3 hours and16 minutes. In the spirit of the record, it should be completed covering as much land as possible. Therefore not bypassing large areas of land via boat or flying.

We will be starting at Marble Arch, London at 05:00 on the 15th January 2016. Aiming to finish at Mount Nelson Hotel, Cape Town less than 10 days later. Ensuring that we keep within the speed limits is essential.

Now we have two pages for your sponsorship. One will be on Just Giving ( which this money will go to the British Red Cross. The other page will be this one on Go Fund Me. So please try to donate equally to both via both links. 


We will be completing this challenge for two chosen charities. We are hoping to raise around £5000-£7500 through online and offline donations. Furthermore sponsorship options from companies are greatly accepted. Donations online will be through Just Giving and Just Giving Crowd Funding.

British Red Cross:

The British Red Cross is part of the Red Cross and Red Crescent movement; we support those in crisis whoever and wherever they are. The raised money will support both local and global requirements. High profile work such as our health and sanitation work in West Africa during the Ebola crisis, our humanitarian work in Syria, aiding the wounded and providing shelter for the displaced affected by war, have been carried out. Furthermore supporting  the Nepalese Red Cross during the aftermath of the Nepal earthquakes.

Protrack Rhino Task Team:

Protrack Rhino Task Team is developed from the founders of Protack Anti-Poaching Unit. Which is the oldest and largest anti-poaching unit in South Africa.
