In November 2010 Jamie Dawson (Managing Director of Allied Protection) and his brother took part in the Karma Enduro challenge. The challenge is to drive 2000kms in a 1950's style car through southern India to raise money for the Rainbow Trust Childrens Charity (UK) and the Adventure Ashram (India). This is the letter we received from Jamie.
"We are back in one piece from our successful endurance charity rally through Southern India. Together with the other drivers and your sponsorship we managed to raise over £250,000!!!
Our two week journey took us from our starting point in the state of Goa through the states of Karnatika to Tamil Nadu until we reached our final state of Kerala. The driving itself was nothing like you would experience over here in the UK, with Cars, Trucks, buses, motorbike, bicycles, Cows and pedestrians coming at you from all angles! Along this route we experienced varying religions, landscapes, animals (lots of insects!) and most importantly the People. Both my brother and I were taken aback with their genuine happiness and enthusiasm, which was all very humbling given the poverty in which they live.
I wanted to say a personal thank you to Kentec for your donation as the Rainbow Trust is very dear to my heart and having managed to raise an amount of this size is truly overwhelming."
We congratulate Jamie and his brother on raising this amount of money.
