But this has been be no ordinary charity drive as David Lee, a senior agribusiness partner at Yorkshire Bank's Financial Solutions Centre in York, will be completing the solo challenge in a Wacky Races-esque Riley Brooklands vintage car.
"The Riley Charity Drive was an idea that we came up with to let Yorkshire Bank show its support for two very worthwhile causes," said David Lee.
"Over the course of five days, I've travelled from Newcastle to the Devon County Show - and have, so far, stopped off at seven locations in between to raise awareness of the charity drive."
At 12pm on Friday 18th May, David will arrive at the eighth and final stop off - at the Devon County Show - before heading back up to Yorkshire.
"I'm completing the drive solo - so if anyone passes me on the way, I'll be pleased to get a wave or shout of encouragement," continued David.
"The prospect of covering so many miles in a vintage car which although beautiful, doesn't have the most sophisticated of shock absorbers, was quite daunting - but given that I've already travelled about 500 miles, I've got used to the bumps!"
