Planes, Games and Automobiles at Goodwood
Hi all, many thanks to Bachi for offering Petrolhead Nirvana's help with regards to helping promote this event for a very good cause. In my capacity as the Sporting Bears South West Rep it gives me great pleasure to let you all know about a fantastic day out that the team and I have organised…….
Planes, Games & Automobiles at Goodwood June 4th 0900-1700
The event is in aid of the Royal Navy & Royal Marines Childrens Fund http://RNRM Childrens Fund| http://w...g.uk/about-us/ with all proceeds going directly to the charity. Formed in 1902 it is one the oldest childrens charity in the UK. They support children with mental and physical disabilities, however due to operations in Afghanistan the support to families due to bereavement has risen sharply over the last few years.
As we can all see from the news, the fatalities have been heavy and the charity is committed to looking after the bereaved children and supports them up to the age of 21. Over the course of 2010/11 we assisted 1600 children. Of these:
49% were suffering from a disability or mental or physical illness.
40% were due to the consequence of parental illness or death.*
11% due to the impact of parental relationship problems (these are increasingly due to the parents post traumatic stress)*
This event will have three main elements focusing on providing a great day out for families and petrol heads alike. On June the 4th come and celebrate the Jubilee with us on a right Royal day out in the heart of Sussex at the wonderful Goodwood circuit/Aerodrome, home to the world famous Festival of Speed and the Revival meeting.
