2017 rally dates announced!
We’re excited to announce that the next Parenta Trust Rally will take place on 21st – 25th June 2017. For those that haven’t heard much about the event before, this is a banger car rally which starts at Parenta HQ in Maidstone and finishes 5 days later in Monaco, having travelled through 8 countries!
The aim is to get a group of friends together, buy a car worth no more than £400, then stock up on provisions for the adventure of a lifetime!
The rally takes you along some of the most breathtaking routes in Europe, through the legendary Furka Pass in Switzerland, along some of Europe’s most amazing driving roads, to the glamorous town of Monaco. There will be plenty of laughs, a chance to meet new people and normally a few pranks pulled along the way.
To participate, all we ask is that each team raises a minimum of £1000 for the Parenta Trust.

So, what’s it all in aid of?
In 2013, when the Parenta Trust was created, we pledged to build 10 pre-schools for orphaned and disadvantaged children in Africa. We firmly believe that no matter where a child is in the world, that they deserve the opportunity to go to school and learn in a loving and safe environment.
Each nursery school we build can accommodate between 140-250 infants. To promote healthy living we always include latrines and a rain water collection system as standard!
The impact our schools have had so far on the local community is incredibly positive and far-reaching; providing a means for children to break out of the cycle of poverty and look forward to a much brighter future.
We’ve come amazingly far in the past few years and are proud to say we’ve commissioned our fourth pre-school in Uganda. But none of this is possible without your help, and the Parenta Trust Rally provides a vital means of fundraising for our schools.
