Take part in the Modina Tweed Rally

Get involved in a fun-filled fundraising event this autumn that will see all participants dress up in truly dapper attire.

The Modina Tweed Rally - which is taking place in Newport on the Isle of Wight November 30th - promises to be a great day out for you and your family and is in aid of two brilliant causes: Prostate Cancer UK and brain injury association Headway.

Competitions sponsored by local businesses are being held from 10.30am to judge the best costumes. If you want to be in for a chance of winning, then try and stand out by investing in a tweed hat and fake Victorian-style moustache.

The rally itself will begin at around noon, with all those who are taking part leisurely making their way on a two-wheeled contraption of their choice to Cowes Parade in a journey lasting 30 to 45 minutes.

To get involved in the event, you must purchase a ticket for £12, with £10 of this being split equally between the two charities. The extra £2 covers PayPal, administration and promotion fees.

Kids under the age of 16 can join the rally for free when accompanied by a paying adult.

Don't miss out on the opportunity to dress up like folks from times past and raise some cash for charity, at the same time as getting to know Isle of Wight locals and enjoying a fantastic new experience with your loved ones.

Who knows? You might even take home first prize!

Wight Mountain are one of the local companies sponsoring the rally and will be presenting the winner with moustache-style handlebars. Awards are set to be given out in a number of categories, including Best Dressed Chap, Best Lady's Overall Look and Best Chap's Moustache.

All participants have been reminded by organisers of the event to bring along their order receipt (and ticket) with them on the day of the rally so they can check in on arrival.ADNFCR-3083-ID-801654737-ADNFCR
