Holiday Extras wins the Travel Trade Crusade 2014


On Friday July 11, a team from Holiday Extras set off from Kent to drive through six countries over three days in the annual Travel Trade Crusade.

Travel industry professionals from all over the country vied to drive the craziest cars and raise funds for local charities.

The Holiday Extras team dressed as the Super Mario Bros, doctors, nurses and a parrot! Their chosen modes of transport for  the whacky event was a Mario-themed Mercedes and a quirky Skoda “ParrotAmbulance”.

Holiday Extras’ Super Mario team achieved the top prize of £500 which was added to the £1000 already raised to benefit Demelza House.

Lindsay Garvey Jones, National Partnerships Manager for Holiday Extras commented: “The Travel Trade Crusade is a special and unique way of raising funds and awareness for charity. We faced daily challenges along the way to win points for our team and we were absolutely thrilled to be crowned the Crusade’s winners –  earning extra funds for Demelza!”
