Yorkshire's Mr Men Bid For Soap Box Glory!
Best of luck to Jonny Heath and his Yorkshire Soap Box team, taking on the epic Red Bull Soap Box Race this Sunday (3rd July), at Alexandra Palace in London.
Jonny and his team mates Dave Bendall, Jonno Ambler, Mark Harrison and Tim Heath have been taking part in the challenge every year since 2001, in carts taking the shape of things from Donald Trump, to the A-Team, to an Apollo Rocket!
The team have been working on their latest cart since January and decided on the Mr Men theme, to celebrate 50 years of the children's books by Yorkshire author Roger Hargreaves.
Beneath the paint & papier-mache lies our lightweight EPS, which has been hot-wire cut and sanded... here's a look behind the scenes, at how the team created the cart!
Jonny's team will be dressed as some of the book's characters, like Mr Funny, Mr Tickle and Mr Strong. Here's the finished article!
The team's also raising money for the Children with Cancer Fund, all donations greatly appreciated! www.justgiving.com/fundraising/MrMenSoapbox
Fingers crossed for a fast finish!
