Rally2Raise to receive support from the Saltire Rally Club

The Rally2Raise charity project has had some good news to kick off 2012 with its selection to receive support from the Saltire Rally Club.

The project, founded by rally competitor Rachel Medich, aims to use rallying to raise funds and awareness of four causes: the Nystagmus Network, the Joanne Bingley Memorial Foundation for post natal depression, Cancer Research UK and the MS Society. Rachel and her fellow team members will be undertaking a number of fundraising events throughout 2012 both on and off the stages with the first rally event of the year scheduled to be the Edradour Saltire Classic Rally in March where she will run as course car in her Clark Motorsport-supported Nissan Micra.

"I am very happy that the Saltire Rally Club have selected Rally2Raise as their chosen charitable cause for 2012," said Rachel. "Their Saltire Classic Rally will be the first time I have used my car on an event and I cannot wait for the rally to take place."

"We have had a good start to the project with a cake and cookie sale at the Mull Rally and a fundraising calendar. We’re aiming to build on that in 2012 and raise plenty of funds and awareness for our four charities."

Colin Wallace of the Saltire Rally Club commented: "We are delighted to support Rally2Raise, the four charities it is aiding are all very worthy and to wrap these causes into one support mechanism through rallying is superb."

The Edradour Saltire Classic Rally will take place on Sunday 4th March 2012 with a 95 mile route in the Scottish Highlands including 18 special tests and four regularities. Further information can be obtained from
