Solicitor Jon Dunkley is off on his travels tomorrow – embarking on a gruelling expedition around Europe.
He will start a charity rally which will take him through eight European countries in just eight days.

It is all part of the Monte Carlo Fireball Rally with Jon covering 2,000 miles in total and raising money for Kidney Research UK along the way.

And there is still plenty of time to sponsor him!

 

France, Monaco, Italy, Lichtenstein, Austria, Germany, Luxembourg and Belgium are all on the hectic itinerary before he returns on May 30.
Jon, a partner with Wollens who specialises in employment law and is based at their offices in Barnstaple, will be driving his Audi TTS and hopes to be able to fit in a couple of sightseeing trips.

The Kidney Research UK charity is close to his heart. Wollens chief executive Chris Hart was suffering a worsening kidney condition. Wife Liz donated a life-saving kidney to him in a transplant operations before Christmas.

Jon said: “I chose to raise funds for Kidney Research UK partly because of them and also partly because I know of other people with kidney disease.”

Jon has set up a Just Giving page on the website for donations. You can find it here:

He is also more than willing to take cash donation as well!https://www.justgiving.com/fundraising/jon-dunkley1?newPage=True.
