A HUSBAND and wife team of car enthusiasts are leaving their beloved Morris Minors at home to take part in a charity challenge on two wheels.

Tracey and Grant Cramond, from Darlington, are setting off on a coast to coast cycle to raise funds for the RNLI station in Hartlepool, tomorrow (June 11).

They are being accompanied on the trip by their son-in-law, Danny Robinson.

The three set off from the west coast on Wednesday and expected to reach Hartlepool marina on Sunday.

They hope to raise hundreds of pounds for the charity.

Mr and Mrs Cramond, who have three Morris Minors, are members of the North-East Morris Minor Owners Club.

The club meets every month at Burnmoor Cricket Club, near Chester-le-Street.
