Local businesses came together on 17th October to see who had the skill and endurance to reach pole position. Hayward Wright Chartered Accountants put together a race day in aid of Megan Baker House sponsored by Hills Ford in Kidderminster and Malvern.
Alistair Druett, Director at Hayward Wright said “We decided to put on a fun day for local companies to help raise funds for a local charity Megan Baker House. We were originally going to put on an afternoon race but due to the demand, we sold out in 10 hours, we put on a morning race as well”
Eighteen teams took part in the endurance race over two hours at AKS Karting in Norton, Worcestershire. With a silent auction for grid positions and the opportunity to purchase black flag stops for other teams as well. The winner of the morning session was E-response Recruitment and the afternoon session was won by HSBC.
“The day could not have gone better and it was great to see the friendly completion amongst the teams. AKS Karting were a great help in arranging the day and ensuring everybody stayed safe whilst having fun. Most importantly we raised a staggering amount due to the generosity of the teams who took part” said Alistair Hayward-Wright owner of Hayward Wright Chartered Accountants.
The day raised a total of £1440 pounds for Megan Baker House.
