Big Learner Relay 2018


Raising funds for BBC’s Children In Need appeal

What is the Big Learner Relay?

Now in it’s fifth year, The Big Learner Relay is a 15 day event featuring driving instructors from across the UK joining together to raise money for BBC’s Children In Need appeal.

The concept is to relay a top box (the kind that driving instructors have on the roof of their cars), from one driving lesson to another, followed by a convoy of other driving school cars, travelling around England, Northern Ireland, Scotland and Wales.  

The relay starts in Belfast on 31st October, and finishes at Silverstone on Friday 16th November - Children In Need night.

The Route!

On offer from each instructor will be the opportunity for a student to take part in the relay lesson. I am offering:

 Friday 2nd November: 

  • 12.00pm Springbrook Pub, Warrington to Altrincham

  and / or

  • 1.00pm   Homebase, Altrincham to BBC Media City

If you would be interested in taking part please ask me for more details.

How will we raise the money? . . . Sponsorship!

During the last four years the Big Learner Relay has raised over £300,000 for Children In Need!

My car will be adorned in coloured spots, and I will be asking pupils to kindly sponsor and sign a spot!
