A taxi cab in front and a VW camper behind

A fundraiser for Barnardos has embarked upon a world record attempt to run 35 marathons in just 22 days – by running from John o’Groats to Lands End and then finishing by completing the London Marathon on April 13th.

The two support vehicles, which have been donated, are a Mann & Overton TX4 London black cab and a Volkswagen ‘California’ camper van.

The marathon runner, Bernie Hollywood, is employed by Lloyds TSB and so both vehicles are easily identifiable by their livery.

Volkswagen say that the camper van can sleep four, as well as having a fitted cooker, sink and cool box.

It will provide accommodation for the support drivers and Bernie during the gruelling 926 mile journey.
