Many congratulations to CRM's nephew Liam and the other two members of the team – Chris and Ally on completing The Mongol Rally in a Skoda Fabia with a shopping trolley on the roof as a luggage rack. They have been raising money for WaterAid through just giving – you can donate here.  

Round up comment from Team Tartan Trews: 
'So that's it folks. Today we reached the end of our adventure and the finish line in Ulan-Ude! Our trip has totaled in at 9,230 miles of driving and 300 miles by boat, crossing the Caspian Sea. We are still in a state of shock at the moment and can't quite believe this day has come. 

It has been an absolute blast, lots of great experiences, ups and downs. We are privileged to have seen some of the most stunning landscapes and sights and have met some incredibly helpful and welcoming people along the way. We can safely say this is one of the most difficult challenges we have ever undertaken and probably ever will. If we don't see another border crossing for a while we will all be very happy!

With your help we have managed to raise over £9,379 so far for wateraid and £500 for coolearth. Thank you to everyone who has donated so far and for all your support, generosity and help you have given us along the way. If you haven't yet donated there is still plenty of time to do so via our just giving page.'
