It’s ‘go, go, go’ for Hope House Children’s Hospices as it will appear on some of the country’s most famous racing tracks thanks to Ferrari racing team WalkerSport.
The Llanymynech-based team will now carry its local children’s hospice’s branding across its car alongside some of its famous sponsors, including Pirelli.
Tim Walker, race driver, race instructor and owner of WalkerSport says he is honoured to carry the name of the hospices on tracks such as Brands Hatch, Silverstone, Oulton Park and Donnington.
“Hope House is an incredible local charity and we are proud to be associated with them and represent them across the country,” said Tim.
“The work they do for local children and families is vitally important, which I can appreciate as a father myself.
“The car looks great with our local charity on it in prime position and we look forward to spreading the word of Hope House across the country, and hopefully getting a few wins along the way.”
Hope House Children’s Hospices provide specialist nursing care and support to more than 750 terminally ill children and their families who live in Shropshire, Cheshire, North and Mid Wales and it costs £7.5 million a year to run its services.
Lynsey Kilvert, fundraiser, said: “It’s great for us to be featured on the WalkerSport race car to help spread the word.
“We’ve been on a train, a bin lorry and now we are featuring on a race car, and it all helps raise awareness that we are here for local family and children, and that we need to raise lots of money to make sure we can be here for those that need us the most.”
