What Is FRL?
FRL was the born from a mad idea to raise money for homeless UK veterans by driving convertibles around the M25 in the middle of winter with the roof down! It started as a group of MG enthusiasts but has since grown to include owners of any and every type of convertible you can imagine,but with the same purpose - roof down no matter the weather, and raise as much money as possible for the
UK Homes4Heroes Pride & Passion registered charity.
February 2024's run will be the 12th edition and so far has raised the outstanding amount of over £88,000 for this truly worthy cause!
So why drive the M25 with the roof down in the middle of winter?
Homeless veterans living on the streets have to survive whatever the weather or temperature. For just a couple of hours the drivers of these cars will experience a little of the elements for themselves, albeit from the seat of a comfortable vehicle. It's the least we can do....
