Selwyn Kendrick Memorial 4 x 4 Challenge
Date: Friday 17th - Sunday 19th September 2021
The aim of this fantastic 4x4 weekend is to raise €10,000 for Look Good Feel Better through a charity fundraiser organised by Terrafirma Training (TFT) involving a weekend of activities, starting with a 4 x 4 treasure hunt type event and culminating with a black tie ball and casino night in The Rose Hotel, Tralee, Co Kerry.
We ask each team to raise at least €500, plus an entry fee of €130 per person. TFT will be awarding a prize of a set of BF Goodrich All-Terrain off-road tyres to the team that raises the greatest amount (tyres donated by Michelin Tyres UK).
Then there's the fabulous gala ball and casino night. After dinner, all guests will be issued with a set amount of free betting chips to play the casino. The team finishing with the most chips will be deemed the winner and will win a weekend break for two in the five star Kilkea Castle, Kilkea, Castledermot, Co Kildare.
