Sally Thompson and Bob Coates are taking part in the Veterans Banger Rally next month to raise funds for Dementia UK and SSAFA, an Armed Forces charity called the Soldiers, Sailors, Airmen and Families Association.
The duo, who are directors of home care company Senior Moments Care and Moments Hub Daytime Club in St Annes, are aiming to raise £3,000, and have already recieved £1,000 in donations from kind supporters.
The trip will involve them driving from Dover to Gibraltar, along with 40 other teams, in the Peugeot 206 which they named after their late friend Trevor Clarke.
Trevor lived in Warton with his wife Norma having previously been in the RAF before working at BAE.
Sally said: “We will be travelling in a Peugeot 206 which we have fondly named Trevor in memory of a good friend who attended the Moments Hub and was a veteran of the RAF.
“But before we set off on our adventures, we have a few fundraising events planned in August.”
A family garden party will be held on August 6 at St Thomas Church Hall in St Annes.
The fun will begin from 2pm and will feature candy floss, roll-a-penny, craft stalls, a tabletop sale, plant stall, tombola and raffle as well as a cake stall.
The following day will see Sally and Bob with Trevor the Peugeot 206 at Lytham Hall for the Vintage Car Rally where they will join other teams taking part in the rally.
There will be chance to sponsor a message on the car for a small donation.
And on August 17 at 6.30pm they will be hosting an evening with Mrs Monas who is taking the culinary world by storm with her new concept for a base curry mix.
Places are limited and tickets are £10 each.
To book tickets, which cost £10, call the Hub on (01253) 724191.
