    Phocas to take part in 2017 Pavestone Rally

    On 10 September 2017, Phocas Software's Neil Cooper, Jason Law, and Steve Parry will undertake a four-day challenge, driving across ten countries throughout the UK & Europe in aid of the Teenage Cancer Trust, and the Rainy Day Trust.

    More on the journey

    The Pavestone Rally covers 2500 miles, with over thirty teams taking part all in aid of two great charities. The cars entered should cost no more than £500, and teams can include up to four people.

    Once underway, the first stop will be in Luxembourg City, while day two will entail a journey through Germany and Switzerland. After an overnight stay in Liechtenstein, day three will see our team head through Austria, and then Italy, before closing out the day in Verona. The final day of the Pavestone Rally sees the team drive among the magnificent backdrops of Monte Carlo, before an overnight stay in Nice for the rally awards dinner. A glorious finish to what we’re sure will be a rewarding experience, all in aid of charity.

    “I’m mostly looking forward to the last days’ drive into Monte Carlo. It’s a stunning place and will be a fitting location for us to end the rally” says Steve Parry, Business Development Executive.

    Fancy dress and challenges

    Throughout the rally, each team will have a series of challenges to complete while dressed head to toe in fancy dress.  Points will be awarded for challenges successfully completed, as well as the quality of fancy dress, and the age and engine size of each car. These factors, coupled with the respective grit and determination of each team, will contribute to eventual point tallies.

    All donations given to the Phocas team will be split across both the Rainy Day trust and the Teenage Cancer Trust charities. Our fundraising goal for the rally is £1500, and through Virgin Money Giving, anyone can be a sponsor. Donations will be quickly processed and passed on to respective charities. Everyone at the Phocas family appreciates your support, and thank you in advance for any kind donations:

    “I’m thankful to the entire Phocas team for their help and encouragement on what I’m sure will be a tough, but rewarding experience” says Neil Cooper, Phocas Solutions Consultant.

    About the charities

    The Rainy Day Trust is working towards a time when all those who have worked in the home improvement and enhancement industry have the funds they need to live. They strive to achieve this goal by working both alone, and in partnership with other organisations to aid those who have fallen on hard times.

    The Teenage Cancer Trust is the only charity dedicated to creating world-class cancer services for young people in the UK, providing life-changing care and support so young people don’t have to face cancer alone. Around seven young people aged between 13 and 24 are diagnosed with cancer everyday in the UK. It is vital that they get the expert treatment and support that they require and deserve.

    Thanks to Berkeley Insurance for helping us insure our car.
