Cool Earth

In 2017, two of Holborn Assets’ interns were challenged to take on the Mongol Rally, which is a race against the elements with only the basics for company. The Rally, which took place in July, required participants to purchase a vehicle for less than £500 and to map a full route to drive a whopping 10,000+ miles across Europe and Asia. Ambitious adventurers navigated their way through the mountains, deserts and wilderness of various countries including Tajikistan, Kyrgyzstan and Mongolia before finishing in Siberia’s Ulan-Ude, close to Lake Baikal. As a company, we encourage future employees to propose and present a social enterprise they are passionate about to its Community Support Committee for consideration. Interns Charles and Adam chose environmental charity Cool Earth as their organisation of choice, and successfully conquered the treacherous journey in a Toyota Yaris. Well done boys!
