Mutineers Red Bull Soapbox race to raise money for Action Homeless
We are very excited for Action Homeless to be represented at the Red Bull Soapbox Race 2022 by Leicester based team the Mutineers.
“Red Bull Soapbox Race challenges the most fearless, fun-loving and foolhardy teams to prototype and create the wackiest of rides. Prepare to propel your car to the finish line and hope gravity is on your side. Welcome to the pinnacle of non-motor-racing!” – Quote taken from the Red Bull Soapbox website.
The team is made up of Nathan Pinfold, Jon Taylor, Blake Evans, Paul George and Brandon Foster-Smith, who have all decided to raise money for Action Homeless whilst they race in the Soapbox race on 3rd July 2022.
The team have been planning, designing and building their soapbox out of an old canoe, to race around Alexandra Palace in London for charity. They have also made T-shirts which are available to buy, with all profits gong to Action Homeless.
“The team are always up for a challenge and this seemed like a fun one! Between them they have all the skills needed to build something like this. It started with Blake having the idea and rallying some friends up to create The Mutineers and applying for a place in the race, they are one of only 70 teams to take part on the day. Whilst they were planning it seemed silly not to do it for charity and try to raise some funds in the process. They all agreed that they wanted to focus on a local charity doing work in their city and Action Homeless is a Leicester based charity, doing great work where every team member is from.” – quote taken from the team.
If you would like to follow the Mutineers’ journey and donate to support them, you can visit their Facebook page, which also has a link to purchase a T-shirt and their GoFundMe page. We will also be posting about the Mutineers progress on our social media platforms.
Action Homeless would like to thank all of the team for choosing to support us and we wish you all the best for your amazing Soapbox race in July! We can’t wait to see the final Soapbox and see your process!
