The Topless Tour – Sunday 12th June 2011
The Topless Tour is a convertible car rally from Newquay to Lands End and is held in memory of 13 year old Harriet Cole from Newquay who sadly lost her life to leukaemia. Harriet’s family help organise the event in her memory as driving in their convertible car was something she enjoyed so much.
The event starts at Hendra Holiday Park in Newquay, which offers a great opportunity for people to show off their cars and enjoy the hospitality and entertainment. The cars leave Newquay at around 10:30am making their way down the coastal roads of Cornwall to Lands End. We have a suggested lunch time stop of at Godrevy Point which offers another chance to enjoy the spectacular Cornish views, a spot of lunch, display the cars and raise awareness of the charity to the general public. The journey then continues down to Lands End which offers further opportunity for promotion.
Previous events have attracted many different cars including Jaguars, MG’s, Lamborghinis and a large Pink Cadillac. This is the third year of running the Topless Tour here, and to date it has raised just over £5,000 for CLIC Sargent.

The value that you are able to add to our event by offering free promotion in the lead up to the event would be immense. We would hope that this would not only increase support for the event itself, but it would help raise awareness of the charity’s local presence and vital work for children with cancer.
We are seeking a main sponsor(s) of £500 for an Open Top Bus as a new addition this year.
In return for this support, we are able to provide branding exposure opportunities in the following areas:
· Pre/post event media coverage
· Car Rally Plates
· At start / end points / during tour on the open top bus
Smaller donations to support other costs of the event will be gratefully received and your support will be recognised in the event at start & end points.
Why CLIC Sargent?
CLIC Sargent has one simple aim: to ease the burden of childhood cancer on children, young people and their families.
Every day 10 families are told that their child has cancer. Diagnosis often comes as a shock. Treatment usually starts straightaway and can last up to three years.
As the children’s cancer charity, CLIC Sargent is there… with clinical, practical and emotional support, every step of the way.
The team here in Cornwall support over 60 local children and their families each year. Right now, they are only able to help two out of three families whose child has cancer. Please help … so they can be there for each and every one.
