A Swindon team of friends is racing to the sun in an old banger for charity.

The Race to the Sun will be completed by friends from the UK to Benidorm, Spain to raise money for Swindon Children’s Cancer and Leukaemia Movement.

The team will be competing against 30 others from across the UK and Ireland to raise money for the charity that helps parents who have a child who is undergoing cancer treatment.

One of the team taking part Ashley Murtough sadly lost his nephew, Seb Murtough, to cancer in 2014.
