Charity: The Teenage Cancer Trust
British Charities

Team Flapjack are doing the Plymouth-Banjul Challenge in an attempt to raise £3000 for The Teenage Cancer Trust.

Each day in the UK, 6 teenagers will find out they have cancer. Young people often get a raw deal, receiving hospital treatment in inappropriate facilities alongside children or elderly people. In many cases, cancer in teens is not picked up early enough as symptoms are dismissed as just being growing pains. Because teenagers are undergoing growth spurts, their cancers grow faster than other age groups and they can be at greater risk.


Registered Charity No: 1062559
African Charities

Teams taking part in the Plymouth-Banjul Challenge are required to hand over their car upon arrival in Banjul, for it to be auctioned off in the Charity Auction.

The Plymouth-Banjul Challenge is intended to benefit Registered Charities in The Gambia. Participants' vehicles and equipment are received by the PBC Control Committee in Banjul, and auctioned off. The money raised is pooled for distribution by the Grants allocation sub committee.

To date, the total revenue for Gambian Charities through selling participants' vehicles is close to £500,000.
