The Chartwell Mission
The auction is a culmination of a charity mission involving 7 iconic series I, II and III Land Rovers driving from Chartwell in South Africa to Chartwell in the UK, totalling a distance around 22,000km. Funds are being raised to develop sustainable opportunities for the next generation, focused specifically on food and water management techniques.
Discovering an abandoned and decaying series 3 Landy, gathering dust under a tree in the Cradle of Humankind became the catalyst and the vehicle was appropriately given the name… Winston.
Whilst being restored to its former glory it was discovered that Winston had been driven from the UK down through Africa and so the challenge to return it by driving from Chartwell to Chartwell gave birth to ‘c2c’.
