Wiltshire race venue Castle Combe Circuit has added to its long line of work to help with charities recently following some more key events held at the race track.

Whether it’s collections found at race meetings or the 50p donation made by each attendee to the ever-popular car boot sales, each event sees organisers select a new local charity to offer its invaluable support towards.

April’s Howard’s Day race meeting, for example, saw an impressive £690.55 raised by the Chippenham Lions on behalf of Wiltshire Air Ambulance – a vital organisation for the county which houses its own helicopter to help with rapid response to local accidents and incidents. A car boot sale in the same month also successfully raised no less than £1271.72 for Friends of Luckington School – a Chippenham-based primary school in the heart of the community.

The circuit also recently held its annual Charity Track Day – giving motor enthusiasts the chance to drive on the smooth Tarmac whilst taking donating passengers for a ride in their performance machines. For the fifth year running, this event saw funds raised go to RUH Bath’s Forever Friends appeal – which helps to pay for additional equipment, research and innovations, as well as finishing touches and 'extras' that complement the existing high quality care for patients at the Royal United Hospital in the city.

With a whopping £5750 accumulated (which will be doubled to £11,500 thanks to the Brownsword Match Funding Challenge), the event has led to Castle Combe Circuit being awarded with the prestigious title of Senior Community Partner to the charity.

With several more events scheduled over the next few months, the circuit endeavours to continue its close relationship with key local charities as the summer progresses. If you'd like to help to support local charities, simply pop along to our next Car Boot Sale on Sunday 10th June!
