A DRIVING challenge that brought childhood games of playing with toy tanks, diggers and fire engines to reality, raised £4,000 for two charities.
Last October, the Fire Fighters Charity and the Earl Mountbatten Hospice invited people aged over 17, with a full driving licence, to test their motoring skills in a variety of vehicles, including a bus, a fire engine, a digger and a tank at the Isle of Wight Military History Museum.
The money raised was divided between both charities during a cheque presentation at Newport Fire Station last Wednesday.
