LADIES can get behind the wheel of some unusual vehicles in a new charity challenge.
The Fire Fighters Charity and the Herts Air Ambulance have launched their Ladies Driving Challenge, which will take place at Nuthampstead Shooting Ground on Sunday, September 8.
Participants will be able to try their hand at manoeuvring a range of different vehicles such as fire engines, 4x4s, HGVs, diggers and tractors all kindly donated by local companies.
The event has been organised by Sean Comerford, former station commander at Royston fire station.
He said “The Ladies Driving Challenge promises to be an exciting day, with the chance to operate a fantastic collection of vehicles often associated with male drivers. Other types of driving event can be uncomfortably competitive with an emphasis on speed, and this has been known to put off some women.

“The Women-only Challenge is much more relaxed with the focus on handling vehicles with skill and enjoying new experiences, as well as raising money for a good cause.’
Registration costs £10, and anyone wishing to take part can register online at www.firefighterscharity.org.uk/ldc, or contact Sean Comerford on email@example.com or 07824 837483.
