The Great Road Trip

Read more ...


KD-UK and KDA have organised an ambitious road trip from Los Angeles to Rome, Italy, just 6900 miles in a 29 horsepower 35-year-old Citron 2CV.  This journey is taking place from April to July 2022. 

Our iconic ‘tin snail’ 2CV has been comprehensively refurbished for the trip.  The cost of the 2CV, and its restoration, was funded by a generous donor.

The car was shipped to Los Angeles to start the journey from LA to New York. She is then being shipped back across the Atlantic from New York to Southampton where she will start her UK road trip, heading from Falmouth to London but stopping at Poundbury en route as KD-UK HQ is based here.  

The 2CV will then head across the Channel over to France and routes through Paris, Chamoinx and finally finishing her adventure in Rome, Italy.

Our GRT Celebration Dinner is an evening to celebrate this epic journey, which is raising the awareness and funds for vital research into Kennedys Disease across the USA, UK and Europe.

There is no UK Government funding for research into this disease.  Our aim is to raise £100K and we are almost at our target.  

We hope that through this on line auction you can help us reach our fundraising target and create long lasting wonderful memories.

Thank you for your support from all at KD-UK and KDA.

When bidding on an auction item, if you enter more than the minimum increment for an item then your bid will be used for proxy bidding. This is how it works:
1. You enter the absolute maximum that you are willing to bid for an item.
2. jumblebee places a bid on your behalf, using the minimum amount required to make you the highest bidder, i.e. current bid price plus bid increment OR the reserve price, if there is one and it can be covered by your proxy bid.
3. jumblebee continues to bid on your behalf, whenever you are outbid by another member's bid, until your maximum bid is exceeded or the auction is won.
4. jumblebee will notify you by email if your maximum bid is outbid by another member and provided the auction is still running, you will then have a chance to enter a new maximum bid if you wish.
For example:
The current bid on an auction item is £100. The minimum increment is £10. You enter a bid of £150 (your maximum bid).
Using your bid, but increasing only by the minimum increment, jumblebee sets the current bid to £110.
Another person bids £130 but they are immediately outbid by jumblebee bidding on your behalf and the current bid goes up to £140.
The auction finishes and you have won the auction item at a price of £140.
