A PAIR of local lads have attempted to drive from Blackpool to Benidorm in an old banger to raise cash for charity. 

James Collins and Nathan Thornton begun the four days challenge on Wednesday - driving a 12-year-old banger to Spain for the Benidorm or Bust rally.

The FIAT Multipla - which cost them less than £300 - had to cover between 300 and 450 miles a day as part of the challenge.

All the money raised from the jaunt will go to the Exodus Project, children's charity based in Barnsley which reaches out to young people, many from disadvantaged communities.
