Dean Griffin and Matthew Wiseman from Northampton, aka team Travelling Veteran, has just completed an epic road trip.

In 7 days, Dean and Matthew, along with 100 other veterans in 30 cars drove all of the way from the UK to Gibraltar for various charities as part of the Veterans Banger Rally clocking up 1700 miles exactly.

They weren't driving just any car though, all of the cars had to cost under £1000 to buy.

In Dean's case, they drove a Toyota Avensis, which has been repainted in Army camouflage colours.

Dean said "there were times when we didn't know if the car would make it, the road trip was harder than we thought it would be, we saw some amazing sights driving over the Pyrenees mountains and had some fabulous experiences off of the beaten track!"

They were raising money for The Veterans Charity.

Danny Greeno from The Veterans Charity explains:

"Several years ago, whilst Dean was studying to be an electrician, he needed our support. He said that he had always wanted to give something back to the charity that helped him at a time of need but injuries prevent him from doing a sponsored run or bike ride etc.

The rally gave him the perfect opportunity to raise funds and take part in a great challenge."

The pair have so far raised £780 and hope to reach their target of £1000!
