We left for Banjul 3948 days, 17 hours, 8 minutes ago.

3700 miles across Europe and Africa, 400 of which are off-road through the Sahara desert, all in a car worth less than £100...

What We're About

Adam and Don are taking part in the annual Plymouth to Banjul Challenge, which consists of driving a £100 banger some 3700 miles from Plymouth in the UK, to Banjul in Gambia, in an attempt to raise £3000 for the Teenage Cancer Trust.

So far, we've raised £3450 of our £3500 target! We've updated our Car Preparations Page with details of the new wheels, continuation of the Martini stripes, spot and fog lights, and more Teenage Cancer Trust stickers. We're continually updating our Things We Need Page too.

Team Flapjack's Route from Plymouth to Banjul. The Plymouth Banjul Challenge 2007

We're driving from the UK, through France, Spain, Gibralter, Morocco, Western Sahara, Mauritania, and Senegal to Banjul, capital of The Gambia.

The route we're taking follows that of the famous Paris-Dakar Rally. Whilst the Paris-Dakar is reserved for those with vast amounts of money, the Plymouth-Banjul is done on a tight budget: £250 entry fee (goes to charity) and a £100 car, £250 fuel... The rest is up to you!

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.
