TEAM HARD. RACING LAUNCHES ‘YOUR NAME, OUR CAR’ FUNDRAISING CAMPAIGN
Kwik Fit British Touring Car Championship squad Team HARD. Racing has today launched a fundraising campaign in support of the Maidstone And Tunbridge Wells NHS, where staff are on the front line in the fight against the COVID-19 pandemic.
Team HARD is located just outside of Maidstone in Detling and, with many team members living in the Maidstone and Tunbridge Wells area, wanted to find a fitting way to support the workers who are battling to save thousands of lives in the region.
To raise money for the Maidstone And Tunbridge Wells NHS, Team HARD and its partners are planning to run a special ‘Your Name, Our Car’ livery on the Howard Fuller/Mike Bushell RCIB Insurance with Fox Transport VW CC at the series’ opening round of 2020, where special thank you messages will be accompanied by the names of donators.
“This is not how we envisaged our 2020 going and I am shocked at the devastation COVID-19 is causing,” said Managing Director of Team HARD, Tony Gilham. “Unfortunately, we don’t yet have the technology or infrastructure that other motorsport organisations have to manufacture devices to make a direct impact. However, we are desperate to use our resources where we can, to help the effort to fight the Coronavirus.
“I’d like to thank our partners Right Choice Insurance Brokers, Fox Transport, Hub Financial Solutions and Autobrite Direct for being so supportive in this movement to help make our mark on fighting the coronavirus. When we do eventually get racing underway the Fuller/Bushell RCIB Insurance with Fox Transport car will be awash with names and messages of support from everyone who has joined us in helping raise money for this very worthy cause.
“The hospitality team are also putting a number of VIP tables at selected events throughout the season on reserve for NHS staff raffle prize winners, after all, these heroes are the most important people around at the moment.
“On behalf of the whole team, I can’t thank the entire NHS enough for all their hard work. You have supported us from the stands, now it’s time for us to support you.”
