Raising for The Rustathon

I am organising an event for next August, it initially started off as a bit of fun with some work colleagues and has moved to being a fundraising event for a couple of charities and to be honest have a bit of fun, in these gloomy times especially. The event is called the Rustathon. The aim is to travel 1500 miles in 3 days in cars that cost £300 or less and see who makes it back. I would like this to be a yearly event but I need a little help getting things started. I have picked 2 charities, one is a personal charity that helped my family personally when we had our first child, who was 3 months premature, which is bliss. The other is the East Anglian Air Ambulance, the whole operation is run by volunteers and from donations which is brilliant for what they do. So that's a little back story, the main aim of the go fund me is to hopefully raise some money so that I can arrange some prizes for the event I have used £500 of my own money already to get some prizes and to get some of the basics. The money will be used for the participants, so I can try and get as many people on board as possible increase the amount that could be raised. All money raised will go to the charities, no money will be taken as profit. If I can I would like to be able to have some sort of memorabilia made in the style of t-shirts/hats or jumpers so again people can see the event and join in the year after. I am happy to receive anything that I can use as prizes or fund parts of the event I am unable to. The Facebook page is here https://www.facebook.com/Cheapcarmarathon/ Please take a look. I have been lucky enough to have been helped out with some great things already, I have a film crew for the event, a company that will help out with all the stickering and a sponsor the main winning and runner-up team prizes I know times are hard for everyone and I am grateful for all the help and support so far in these uneasy times. Any help will be greatly received and will be going to help raise money for two great causes. Thank you for reading, your time and hopefully your donations
