Baku or bust wants you!

You might have already read about the Baku or bust project we’re involved with which will see us drive across Europe and into Asia raising money for the Gôl Appeal.

We’ll be donating footballs, kits, toys and cash gifts to orphanages in the countries we pass through before taking in Wales’ World Cup qualifier with Azerbaijan on Saturday, June 6, 2009.

But it’s not a closed shop, if Baku or bust made you sit up and take notice, we want to hear from you. The more people come on the trip, the merrier!

To get involved raise a minimum of £125, to be donated along the way, along with money to cover your car and travel expenses. FSF Cymru have already sourced a few bargain cars that should do the trick (including the lovely red taxi, pictured above!).

Now we know that while this will be an amazing trip, it’ll also involve a lot of hard work, but we’ve already done a lot behind the scenes so if you’re interested please email Paul Corkrey who’ll can tell you how to get involved.
