PGA Pro breaks round the world record
April 8, 2011

James Morrow of City Golf Club, central London, is part of a crew of friends that's circumnavigating the world in a fire engine called Martha!

Follow That Fire Engine  is a charity mission that has raised thousands of pounds, and set to be awarded Guinness World Record status, by circumnavigating the globe in a fire engine.

On  Sunday 10th  April at 1.00pm , the fire engine and crew will arrive at The Old Royal Naval College, Greenwich, London, to complete their 30,000 mile awe-inspiring global expedition, which set off from the same spot on July 18, 2010.

The round the world challenge has been raising money for three charities - The Fire Fighters Charity, Macmillan Cancer Support and The Roy Castle Lung Cancer Foundation . 100% of all donations will go directly to the charities supported - the crew self-funded the entire trip.

The global mission, covering 28 countries, has been lead by expedition leader Steve Moore.

Follow That Fire Engine is dedicated to the memory of Steve's father, Garth Moore, who passed away on 18th July 2009 at the age of 63, after a brave battle with lung cancer.

Garth was a Fire Fighter and dedicated his life to fighting fires and saving the lives of others, over the course of his 33 years in service.

"We wanted to do something that paid tribute to my father, and the charities that related to his life, and passing," said Steve.

"We've covered gruelling terrain in Mongolia, Russia and Kazakhstan, faced the rainy season in Thailand and Laos, the height of summer in Australia and snow in the USA!. The expedition has been a phenomenal success and has raised a significant amount of money for three amazing charities. It's a fantastic achievement for all involved."

Guinness World Records, Editor-in-chief, Craig Glenday said, "This is an extraordinary world record attempt which shows ultimate dedication and drive. We will be reviewing the evidence to announce the official world record as soon as they arrive".

The Guinness World Record title the crew will achieve is 'Longest journey by fire engine'.

Please come and meet the crew when they arrive back at the Old Royal Naval College, Greenwich on Sunday 10 th  April at 1.00pm.
