A driving force for change

DAVID Champion's 2,000-mile rally is more than just a fun drive with his mates.

The Yate dad-of-two is also driving to help raise awareness of a charity aiming to tackle the biggest killer of men aged under 45 – suicide.

David, 40, and friends Jaimie Shore and Viv Potter are taking part in a five-day rally across Europe, raising money as they go.

They are taking part in memory of Jamie's dad, Pete, who took his own life when they were teenagers.
