Bernie Hollywood + Volkswagen California = world record marathon attempt for charity

Here is some news of a wonderful kind. Please help out by clicking on the orange donate button, on the widget. We spend a lot of time and money on our expensive cars so a simple donation should not be hard for anyone reading this blog.

Just as the nation is tucking in to their Easter Eggs, one man, Bernie Hollywood, will start a world record attempt to complete 35 marathons in 22 days by running over 926 miles from John O’Groats to Lands End and then completing the London marathon, with a Volkswagen California campervan as both his support vehicle and accommodation for the entire trip.

Apart from achieving a new world record, the key motivation for Bernie to attempt such an incredible journey is also to raise £100,000 for the Barnardo’s charity, which will help improve the lives of 50 disadvantaged young people.
