Every year since 2014 hundreds of driving instructors and their pupils across the UK are involved in The Big Learner Relay for Children in Need and I've loved joining in every year.

During the 2017 relay I was proud to be lead car for the Wollaton Hall to Newstead Abbey leg as the relay passed through Nottingham. Every year look out for spotty cars all across the UK throughout September, October and November!

The Big Learner Relay Pudsey Top Box is relayed from one driving school car to the next by teams of driving instructors over the course of the event, covering thousands of miles worth of driving lessons. From September driving instructor cars go spotty and fundraise for Children in Need. Thanks to your generosity we have exceeded £250,000 since 2014.

To sponsor a spot on my car (£5 each) in 2019 simply text NASA5 to 70085 and let me know the message or picture you would like on your spot (or even better you can write it yourself). You can sign it, draw on it, write a message on it - it's your spot! I'll send you a picture of your spot to treasure forever and it'll be promoted across our charity media.
