Mansfield will see its very own Batman and Robin ride out of town on a charity rally next month.
James Duffin and Ashley Poxson are donning the tight spandex outfits in tribute to the Only Fools and Horses cheeky Peckham pair as they drive a Reliant Regal Supervan replica from Mansfield to Benidorm starting on 29th April.
When Mr Duffin’s daughter, Christina, was born prematurely she weighed 2Ibs 2oz and relied on the specialist neonatal care unit at King’s Mill Hospital. Mr Duffin can’t thank the unit enough for the care she received: “This is a fantastic cause as many families like us have experienced the difficulties when giving birth to a baby that is premature, we cannot praise the staff highly enough.”
The pair, who work at JD Bodyworks, will be raising money during the six day rally, with the figure already standing at £1,200. Dean Mansell and Neil Longworth will also be travelling the 1,500 miles as Uncle Albert and Trigger.
For more details on the charity challenge visit www.benidormorbust.com to see around 80 teams taking part raising money for their own charities.
All donations can be made to James Duffin’s page at www.justgiving.co.uk. All donations will be donated direct to the Neo Natal Unit at King’s Mill Hospital via the Emily Harris Foundation.
Businesses can also bid to have their name on the side of the car.
Mr Duffin added: “We have decided to have one main sponsors name on the side of the car, many thanks to Rainworth Skoda for starting the bid at £600, should you want to better this amount please contact James Duffin on 07976 212055.”
