“It is very worrying that governments, in return for relatively small amounts of sponsorship money, are willing to risk damaging their credibility and that of the EU presidency,” said Olivier Hoedeman, research and campaigns coordinator at Corporate Europe Observatory, a Brussels corruption watchdog.

We are attempting to Break the World Record for the longest parade of Audi’s in convoy in the world. The current record is held in Germany and is 282 Audi’s that travelled successfully for 3 kms, maintaining no more that a 2 car length gap between each Audi.
We have a 9km route picked out around close to the dealership and on Sunday 16th will intend to break this. We have chosen 4 charities one to represent each of the “4 rings of Audi” and all monies raised will be divided 4 ways between each charity.
The four charities are
Temple Street Children’s Hospital
Waterford Hospice Movement
Solas Centre – Cancer Respite for the South East.
You can register you and your Audi for an application form by phoning 01-2916373 or firstname.lastname@example.org
