Four friends are planning a 10,000-mile journey of a lifetime through 16 countries in aid of charity projects in Mongolia.

Maurice Fabian Schuttke, 28, of Ealing, and friends Ben Tucker, 28, Harry Tucker, 26, and Bradley Gregory, 24, will leave for charity Go Help's Mongolia Charity Rally on July 11.

Go Help enable access to primary healthcare through the provision, distribution and maintenance of emergency vehicles, help local talent and employment opportunities for young people, and support education projects.

In order for Mr Schuttke, who works for Boutique recruitment company in London, and his team to make their adventure happen, they need to raise £8,000, so are desperately looking for corporate sponsorship.

Mr Schuttke said: "The route we have chosen, driving via the Transfăgărășan Highway (the second highest paved road in Romania), experiencing Turkey, Georgia and admiring the sheer beauty of Kazakhstan, are all choices we have made due to our thirst for learning about the countries and their culture.

"Most certainly the rally could be considered as a leisure activity, although I am not sure that most people classify driving approximately 1,000km a day, queuing up at border crossings, and travelling through some of the hottest and coldest places on earth, as a vacation.

"In exchange for your generosity, (the tax man will pat you on the back and deduct your donation from his collection sack) we will plaster your logos all over our beautiful vehicle of choice, shout from the rooftops via social media, local press and via our own businesses to all our clients."

The group will be supporting: Go Help's ambulance project which has managed to get 20 ambulances to hospitals, clinics and NGOs working in Mongolia; The Book House opened by Go Help in 2011 in the Nalaikh district on the outskirts of Ulaanbaatar with books for children, homework clubs and reading sessions; The Mobile Library for children in western Mongolia; The Book Ger Project setup by Go Help in partnership with Mongolian Education Alliance which provides a comfortable reading environment for children.
