Waterford Audi lines up for record attempt
A Waterford Audi group is going to try to break the world record for the longest parade of Audis in convoy on Sunday – for charity. The current record is 282 and is held in Germany.
Four charities will benefit: Temple Street Children's Hospital, Respect, Waterford Hospice Movement and the Solas Centre (cancer respite for the south east).
All monies raised will be divided between each charity. You can register you, and your Audi, for an application form by phoning 01-2916373 or email@example.com.
