The Billericay Soap Box Derby 2022
Community fun in Billericay, Essex
Celebrations took place across the UK in early June as Her Majesty The Queen became the first British Monarch to celebrate a Platinum Jubilee. This marked 70 years of service to the people of the United Kingdom and the Commonwealth.
One particular event that was organised over the bank holiday weekend was the Soap Box Derby 2022. It was held at Sun Corner in Billericay. It had been postponed for the last two previous years due to covid. Therefore, it was a long awaited event that many in the local community had been looking forward to.
The Billericay Soap Box Derby, bringing community together
In particular, Bennetts Funeral Directors had been planning their entry for many months prior to the Derby. They were keen to get onto the track with their Limousine Rolls Royce cart. The team had based it on the theme of the famous Julia Roberts movie, Runaway Bride.
Cart and driver made good time in the three races against the sixteen other entrants. They were finally placed 2nd overall in the competition which delighted the team. Especially since taking part in the derby gave them the opportunity to riase important funds for Alzheimer’s Charities in Essex.
Land Rover Funerals congratulates the Bennetts team on their sterling efforts at the derby and commends them on all the work that they do within the local community.
