A CONVOY of pink cars will be setting off from John O’Groats later this month at the start of a marathon trip to Land’s End to raise money for charity.

The fifth annual Pink Car Rally gets under way on August 14 in a bid to raise funds for the Little Princess Trust which provides real-hair wigs for children suffering from cancer or alopecia.

The rally will see the procession of pink cars travel nearly 900 miles over five days.

Since the charity began in 2006, it has given away more than 1100 wigs.

This year it aims to hand over a record 500 wigs, each costing at least £350.

Organiser Sali Gray explained the wigs are made from real hair with every individual hair sewn onto a membrane.

The wigs only last between four and six months so for a child who has been diagnosed with cancer and has to undergo two years of treatment that is a lot of expense.

Sali is hoping to raise in excess of £10,000.

“This year’s Pink Car Rally is set to be bigger than ever,” she said.
