Once again an adventurous group of people from across the home improvement sector will come together in early June to take part in the VADO Rally 2018.  Following the now proven format of buying a banger for under £500 and then decorating it, the teams set off on a 4-day, 1,300 mile adventure to Copenhagen that test their mettle!

This year the teams meet in Dover at the National Trust car park before leaving to visit 9 countries on their way to Copenhagen, and the proceeds for the Rally will be split between the Rainy Day Trust and Variety.  Each day the teams will be given tasks to do while in fancy dress, with different themes each day.  Points will be awarded for completing the tasks successfully, with bonus points liberally scattered about for imagination and ‘team spirit’.

On the last night there will be an awards dinner where we will recognise the team that scored the most point, the best fundraising team and a whole host of other awards.  If the last two years are anything to go by, it will be a fantastic event.

As CEO of the Rainy Day Trust, we will be entering a car of our own to take part in this amazing event.  If you want your company’s logo plastered all over the RDT car, then drop our CEO an e-mail on

Here’s looking forward to raising a vast amount of money for two fabulous charities.
