DAVID Jefferies, from Castle Bromwich set off on quite a mission on Saturday May 14 as he embarked on a 2,500 mile journey from England to Bilbao in a 1950s MGTD sports car.

Such incredible challenges are not unfamiliar to David, as he drove across France and Spain on a 2,000 mile trip with his friend Mike Smith back in 2006 - in a 1932 Austin 7.

This time around he will be travelling with his partner Molly, and is facing the mammoth journey head-on despite the fact he has recently suffered a stroke.

His efforts are all in aid of cancer charities, in memory of his late wife Karen, who lost her battle with breast cancer at the age of just 47. Their efforts will span three weeks, and they aim to raise around £5,000 for Macmillan Cancer Support.
