Gary Barlow - Gary Barlow Completes Charity Drive

British singer Gary Barlow is celebrating after helping to raise $1.6 million (£1 million) for charity by driving the length of Britain in a pink Rolls-Royce.

The Take That star joined former D:Ream keyboardist Brian Cox, radio DJ Chris Evans, and Top Gear co-host James May to travel from the most southwestward tip of the U.K. - Land's End in Cornwall, England - to the most northerly point of mainland Scotland, John O'Groats.

The foursome set out on Thursday (18Apr13) in a garish pink car, modelled on Thunderbirds puppet Lady Penelope's vehicle in the classic show, and they completed the 600-mile (965-kilometre) trek on Friday morning (19Apr13). The stunt was in aid of Breast Cancer Care.

After completing the feat, the four stars logged on to a joint Twitter.com account, telling fans, "We did it. Thanks for all your support."
