Cyclists invited to lap Brands Hatch or Snetterton for charity

Monday, June 17 2013

Fans of both Brands Hatch and Snetterton will be given the opportunity to lap the circuits on a bicycle and raise money for charity this September. Both events will take place on Friday 13 September, with the Brands Hatch Indy and Snetterton 300 circuits in operation.

Entry for the evenings, which will run from 5.15pm at Brands Hatch and 7.30pm at Snetterton, will cost £10 per adult and competitors are asked to register before the event. Children under 16 can take part for free but must be with a registered and participating adult. Individuals are encouraged to raise at least £50 in sponsorship, and families to raise at least £100. All proceeds will go towards Action for Children's work locally and across the UK. 

Action for Children is a charity that supports and speaks out for the UK's most vulnerable and neglected children and young people, for as long as it takes to transform their lives. The charity works directly with more than 250,000 children, young people, parents and carers each year and run more than 650 services across the UK.

Laura Hanratta, Action for Children Partnership Fundraiser for Norfolk, said: "We're looking for cyclists of all ages and abilities to take part in these exciting events at Snetterton and Brands Hatch. We hope as many people as possible sign up and follow in the tyre tracks of some of the world's most famous racing car drivers."

Selena Goldsmith, Action for Children Partnership Fundraiser for Kent, added: "The events will be a great family evening out, and will help make a life-changing difference to disadvantaged and neglected children, young people and their families. It will be a fun, healthy way to raise vital funds for a great cause."

There will be plenty of free parking at both events, which are free to spectators. Cold drinks, snacks, ice cream and other refreshments will be available during the evening.
