Join E-Van Guru as we take on the extraordinary challenge of The Travel Trade Crusade — a demanding 1500-mile expedition through six European countries — in an entirely electric vehicle. As pioneers of eco-friendly travel, E-Van Guru, along with teammates from Gilly Bachelor Travel Expert, is proud to introduce The Pink Ribbon Electric Crusaders, the first team to ever attempt this journey using sustainable transport.

Our quartet, featuring E-Van Guru’s own Brian Bachelor, alongside Gilly Bachelor, Stephanie Minton the Holiday Admin Whizz, and Phil Bachelor, is driving a Mercedes eVito Tourer, generously provided by Midlands Truck and Van. We extend our deepest thanks to Alex Hillman, the Van Sales Director, for his pivotal role in equipping us with this state-of-the-art electric van, and our friend James Brinkler for providing design support, creating our joint challenge logo!

The purpose of our voyage is twofold: to advocate for green transportation and to support the vital work of Breast Cancer Now. This cause holds a special significance for our team, particularly for Stephanie, who is honouring the memory of her sister Jennifer Dawson, who lost her battle with breast cancer last year at just 32 years of age, 12 years after losing her mother to the same disease.

Our route spans the scenic vistas of France, Switzerland, Germany, Belgium, and the Netherlands. Alongside enjoying Europe’s stunning landscapes and engaging in the thrill of electric driving, we will participate in quirky challenges set by the event’s organisers to win additional donations for our chosen charity.

E-Van Guru is fully funding the journey’s expenses, including the entry fees, accommodations, charging costs, insurance, and meals, ensuring that all contributions go directly to Breast Cancer Now. These funds will help enhance breast cancer screenings, increase the availability of clinical nurse specialists, and assist survivors returning to work.

We invite everyone to follow our progress and support our cause as we push the boundaries of adventure and charity with electric power. Join us, The Pink Ribbon Electric Crusaders, as we embark on this electrifying quest for a noble cause!
