The Gallery Rally
A rally to raise funds for local charities. This year's destination is the jewel in the crown of the French Riviera -- Monaco.
For the past nine years the Gallery magazine of Jersey has organised an annual rally to raise funds for three local charities -- Jersey Hospice Care, the Jersey Branch of the British Heart Foundation and Silkworth Lodge, which offers residential rehabilitation for men and women suffering from drug and alcohol addiction.
The 2018 rally will be the 10th anniversary of the original rally. It is, therefore, fitting that the final destination for the tenth rally should be be the same destination as the first rally ..... Monaco.
In past years, several Porsche Club members have participated in this rally and readily attest to the excellent organisation of the rally, the devious nature of the clues provided along the way, as well as the fine hotels and restaurants visited along the way.
This year's ralliers will depart Jersey on Wednesday 26th September to arrive in Monaco on Saturday in time for a black tie dinner. The return ferry is booked for Monday 1st October, although some ralliers are likely to linger in the French Riviera for a little longer.
If you are interested to participate in this year's rally please visit the Gallery Rally website at www.galleryrally.com to learn more about the rally. You may also sign up for the rally at the website.
There are two parts to the entry fee to participate inthe rally. The first requirement is to make a £500 charitable donation which goes directly to the 3 local charities supprted by GalleryRally. The donation secures you a place in the rally. The second part is £800 per participant (£1,600 per car) and it must be paid one month prior to departure. This covers the cost of the trip and includes the ferry, accommodation, breakfasts, evening meals and the occasional bottle of wine.
We would love to have as many members as possible to join in this rally, recognising that not everyone can spare the time (or the expense) to take part.
Please join us...it's for charity.
