A host of decorated cars spluttered their way across the finishing line today after completing a 1,200 mile charity adventure across Europe.

Nineteen bangers started the Yewtek Scrappage Rally on Friday and all participants made it back in their worn out cars to raise thousands of pounds for a north Norfolk-based charity.

Organisers of the event have so far raised more than £6,000 for Break and the fundraising total is set to rise when competitors sell their decorated wacky vehicles.

Themed racers including a Jamaican bobsleigh, Thunderbirds, Jurassic Park and Ghostbusters car took part in the road trip through England, France, Belgium and Holland with a series of fun challenges along the route.

All of the cars cost under £250 each. The challenge started and finished at the Bird in Hand pub in Wreningham, near Wymondham.

The rally was the brainchild of Alex Brake who organised one last year for Chapel Road School in Attleborough.

He said: “It went really well. There were a few mishaps and a few break downs, but nothing too major.”

All proceeds will raise funds for the Sheringham-based charity, which runs a series of support services helping children, young people and families.
