Jurassic Coast Minis – Mouth to Mouth – 6th September 2015
This is an annual run organised by the Jurassic Coast Mini Club from Weymouth to Exmouth in aid of R.N.L.I.
This was the second year we have attended the event and it was a very early leave from home, meeting up with Dawn on route in Melksham at 6.30am (we had planned to stay in Weymouth on the Saturday but with all focus being on North Devon the weekend before accommodation bookings had been forgotten about and all hotels were fully booked). We arrived in Weymouth for breakfast on the seafront at 8.30am.
Then a short trip over to Bowleaze Cove for the event start in front of the Riviera Hotel where around 80 minis were assembled on the hotel lawn and Len had already arrived.
At 10.00am the run set off for a tour around Weymouth and Portland and then out along the Dorset coast to the runs mid-way break at the Sidmouth Donkey Sanctuary (unfortunately Len and Dawn missed this stop due to a delay on route caused by a large camper van blocking the route).
After a short stop at Sidmouth the run moved on to its final destination at the Exmouth Life Boat Station for a BBQ and a charity raffle (no prizes for Six-Ex members this year).
Again this was a really well organised event and hopefully we can get a bit more organised next year and have a few more members attending too.
An amazing £1134.40 was raised for the R.N.L.I.
