Mr Hall and his co-driver Joe Washington set off in a 12-year-old Hyundai YRV for the challenge - which was to buy a roadworthy banger for under £500 and navigate through four countries in four days whilst completing mini challenges along the way. The aim was to raise money for Forget Me Not Children's Hospice based in Huddersfield.

The duo's tour took in Rotterdam, Amsterdam, Brussels and Caen.

"We completed our challenge, had an amazing time, and met some great people," said Mr Hall. "Not only that, we also raised money and awareness for a really worthy cause."
