Rally for Heroes 2020
"The Final Run"
COVID 19 & RFH 2020 The Final Run
We have been working hard in the background with our travel coordinators to determine all available options going forward. As such, it is with great sadness that we have to announce that the 2020 Rally will be postponed until 2021. The Collins Aerospace Rally for Heroes will now take place from Weds 11th to Friday 20th August 2021.
We are hugely grateful to our travel agency team who are working tirelessly for us to agree deals with hotels for the following year. Should there be any need to find alternatives, we will ensure that they meet our very high standards.
Whilst an element of disappointment is inevitable as we have been planning the 2020 event for a long time, with a huge amount of man hours consumed in the process, along with the numerous fundraisers that you, the Entrants, have already organised. Nevertheless, we really hope this announcement creates a sense of excitement as we fully intend to have a great run of events leading up to the most amazing adventure that will be the Collins Aerospace Rally for Heroes 2021 event. Bring it on!
As the saying goes "All good things come to an end" and Rally for Heroes is just one of those good things! Yes, we've been running our rallies since 2010 and taken a culmination of over 700 people and 360 vehicles over 18,000 miles, managing to raise a phenomenal £500,000 for Military charities. The time has come to hang up our driving shoes and start ventures new. But before that, we need to have one more outing, something to really end what has been an incredible journey on a bang. Ladies and Gentlemen, we give you Rally for Heroes 2020 "The Final Run".
Between now and the Rally start you will be raising money for our selected charity, SSAFA. You will need to raise a minimum of £1,500 but please do not see this as a target. We aim to smash our event £100,000 objective once again.
You will embark on the adventure of a lifetime whilst getting to experience some of the best roads that Europe has to offer along with stunning locations that are, literally, the stuff of dreams!
