The Big Learner Relay for Children in Need

This two-week event, now in its third year, features driving instructors and pupils across the country all getting together to raise money for Children in Need.

Driving Instructors are relaying a top box, (the kind that driving instructors have on the roof of their cars), from one driving lesson to another around England, Northern Ireland, Scotland and Wales.

The relay started with a day in Northern Ireland on Tuesday, November 1. The top box has continued its convoy around the rest of the UK and the grand finale will be at Donington Race Park on Friday which is the Children in Need Appeal Day 2016 - 14 days, 3000 miles, 190 lead driving lessons and many thousands of instructors and pupils joining the convoy!
