Legendary explorer, Sir Ranulph Fiennes, will appear as a guest of Allmakes 4x4 at the Billing Show this year. Earlier in the year, Sir Ranulph endorsed Project Mobility, a charity designed to help mobilise seriously injured servicemen and women through disability adapted Land Rovers, and a charity for which Allmakes 4x4 recently became a corporate sponsor. 'We thought it would be good to raise the profile of Project Mobility by giving it an area on our stand at the Billing Show where they can demonstrate some of their vehicle conversions and raise awareness of the cause, then when we heard of Sir Ranulph’s endorsement, we knew we had to involve him somehow too,' said a spokesperson for Allmakes 4x4.
'Sir Ranulph has kindly agreed to come along and meet a number of troops from the Coldstream Guard, many of whom will be at the show and who would stand to benefit from the efforts of Project Mobility.'
Sir Ranulph, voted one of the top-ten public speakers in the world, will give a speech to the show visitors on the Friday afternoon where he will talk about the different periods of his life, his various adventures and his tests of endurance. It is fantastic that Sir Ranulph will be at the show, he is a great speaker that should not to be missed.
Another guest of Allmakes 4x4 over the weekend will be former Welsh International rugby star, Richard Parks. Richard will be taking on the 737 challenge and is looking to become the first person in history to stand on the highest mountain in each of the world's continents and all three poles (North, South and the top of Everest) in seven months. Richard, who embarks on his adventure in December this year, in aid of Marie Curie, will give a speech that details the aspects of his extreme challenge and the reasons behind attempting it. 'Richard embodies the same spirit of adventure that is intrinsic within the Land Rover world and we think the crowd will love what he is attempting to do' You can see Richard at the Allmakes 4x4 Village on the Saturday Afternoon of the Billing Show where Allmakes 4x4 have booked the largest single stand ever booked in the Billing Show's 20 year history. John Bowden of Gumtree 4x4 is giving a talk in the Allmakes stand on Rhino Ark and the Rhino Charges at 4pm on Saturday.
