Dakar Rally 2004

In July I received a letter from a friend asking if I would be interested in sponsoring his effort to get to the STARTLINE of The PARIS to DAKAR Rally.

This was the least I could do after the help he gave to me when I fell ill in Marocco after a trip to the fringes of the Sahara Desert.

So the Bakery helped in a small way with the entry fee along with a company called C.D WOW and others.
