Grandpa Joe - Charlie and the Chocolate Factory, by Roald Dahl
I’ve heard tell that what you imagine sometimes comes true

For the 53rd year in a row, madness came to a market town in North Yorkshire and saw the running of the 2018 Great Knaresborough Bed Race.
Geoff Ward, based in the Leeds office, lent his creative and DIY skills to a local Scout Group and built a 4-metre-long ‘Wonkamobile’, complete with bubble machines, to support the Group’s Charlie and the Chocolate Factory themed entry into the pre-race parade of 90 decorated beds.
The Wonkamobile, donated by SGP, helped the Scouts attract other generous sponsors to raise funds for equipment and once again helped the Group (and Geoff) to scoop the ‘Best Dressed Bed’ award.
Geoff has made a short video showcasing the Wonkamobile and the Scouts in the parade. This, and the Official Video, can be found on YouTube.
