Team Johnny Bravo

Johnny Bravo was first created in 2012 before the Rally formally adopted the use of teams.  It prides itself on running a tight ship, on great convoy discipline whilst having an absolutely hoofing time on the Rally!

Steve and Don Shaw are the Team Leaders of Group Bravo.  Both are serving members of the military and have been involved with the Rally since 2012.  Steve is one of the 3 Directors and Don is the HR Manager for the Rally.  They are very much looking forward to leading the best group on the Rally once again!  Their ‘steed’ for RfH 2021 is a subject of mutch debate.  It could be a raucous TVR Chimaera 5.0L V8, the ideal vehicle to tackle Swiss passes, Austrian mountain roads, a Porsche or an M car!  The chase is on!

Hi, we are Jon & Jo Palin, Jon is the car nut in the family and has steadily grown his small collection of cars over the years - wanting to use them and raise money for charity. Jon has been part of Rally for Heroes events since 2014. Jo isn’t much of a car nut but has decided she wants to join in this year as she keeps seeing the great RFH events she keeps missing. Jon’s father and grandfather have served in the Army and his sister works alongside serving and retired military personnel in the Balkans and East Africa with NATO and the UN. The work that SSAFA do for the British Armed Forces family is phenomenal and we are very proud to be part of this rally, raising money to support such a great cause. At present we are going to be doing the Rally in our flip colour Nissan GTR (unless Jo lets Jon buy another car to do the rally in 😊 )

Hello we are Jim and Sarah Pawson.

I work for Collins Aerospace in Malvern and Sarah and I are a Foster parents.


Why are doing this? We completed RFH2018 and enjoyed it so much we had to come back for more.

Throughout my professional career I have delivered products and services to the Armed Forces. Without them I would not be in work so supporting SSAFA is my way of saying thank you. 

We will be driving a Lotus Exige 350 or a BMW M4 Competition for the 2021 Rally

I'm Mark Johns. I joined the Army in 1999 and left in 2011 after serving 12 years with the Royal Signals. I have served 2 tours of Iraq and one tour of Afganistan.

Why am I doing this? Our serving forces communities and veteran communities still require a great deal of support, which is not readily available from our government. I've seen first hand the impact war has had on friends, colleagues and their families to a point where every day is a struggle, whether that be through mental health or struggling to integrate back into society. I personally want to support SSAFA's mission of "Relieving need, suffering and distress amongst the Armed Forces, veterans and their families in order to support their independence and dignity."

I am Dave Baddeley aged 51, I Served in the Royal Signals from 1988 to 2001 leaving as a SSgt.
I served in 3 conflict zones,Bosnia, Kosovo and N Ireland.  I was awarded the Queens Commendation for Valuable Service in Kosovo.


Why am I doing this?   I have experienced first hand the good work SSAFA can do and wanted to pay it forward.  On a lighter side note. I am a practicing alcoholic with many more accolades for doing a good job!
