They travelled by helicopter and by taxi before taking to a Greene King MG and a delivery van.

Teams from the property firm’s Ipswich, Chelmsford, St Albans and Norwich offices were raising money for charity in a Race to the Basse, at its new Cambridge offices.

The rules were that they had to travel by four modes of original and unpaid for transport and could only travel 25 miles in each.

The Ipswich team of Giles Allen, Lucy Underwood and Lauren Gibson-Green travelled by helicopter from Ispwich to Sudbury where they then got a taxi to Bury.

They jumped into a Greene King delivery van, lorry and Old Speckled Hen brandedn 1966 MGB – the three vehicles were driven by Greene King’s Paul Brett, Dave Ellis and Paul Hetschkun to Newmarket.

Tim Fagan of Strutt and Parker’s Ipswich office said: “The Race to the Base should be a challenge for all the teams taking part to come up with the most enterprising and effective way of reaching our Cambridge office and should be an enjoyable way to raise money for the neuroscience wing at Great Ormond Street Hospital.

“We really hope that our professional peers, friends and clients will support us in this vital charity campaign.”

There they were due to ride in a horse box to the Strutt and Parker offices in Cambridge.

The race is in aid of a children’s neuroscience wing at Great Ormond Street.
