A LINGERIE shop hopes these charity fundraisers steered clear of ghosts and crime as they took part in a car trek across Europe.

Gorgeous in Tring High Street supported a team of drivers as they raised money for Crohn’s and Colitis UK by taking part in the Urban All Star Rally.

Gregor Hamilton, of Meadow Road in Berkhamsted, formed a team of three with Nathan Grannell from Chesham and Emma Crossey from High Wycombe.

They took a convertible Dodge Ram and turned it into their own Mystery Machine – which famously featured in children’s cartoon Scooby-Doo.

They started the event from Hughenden Valley before heading for Dunkirk, Rotterdam, the Nürburgring, Prague and the Black Forest in Germany.

The team set off on Thursday and was expected to return on Tuesday.

Danielle Dawson, who owns Gorgeous, said: “We sponsored it for our five-year anniversary.”

She said she decided to sponsor the event after finding out about it through a customer in her shop.

Gorgeous will hold its anniversary celebration on Saturday, July 16, when guests can join them from 1pm for bubbly and birthday cake and take part in a raffle.
