Women from across East Devon are gearing up to take to the wheel, entering the Ladies Driving Challenge in aid of Marie Curie Cancer Care.

Pictured here launching this year’s November event are firefighters from Middlemoor, Exeter, with the charity’s events manager, Jon Duckham and community fundraiser, Deborah Birtwisle.

The popular Ladies Driving Challenge attracts scores of women from across Devon keen to drive large machinery, such as fire engines, JCBs, articulated lorries, diggers, a double-decker bus, tractors and more.

The event will be held on Sunday November 13 at Westpoint, in Exeter, in a bid to raise much-needed funds for the charity.

There will be two sessions – 10am - 1pm and 2pm until 5pm.

Entry is �10 to register and the charity asks for �100 in sponsorship.
