With more than 1,000 of the world’s finest historic competition cars racing on the famous Silverstone Grand Prix Circuit, no fewer than 10,000 iconic cars from yesteryear on display in the infield paddocks and in excess of 100,000 visitors lapping up the magical nostalgic atmosphere, the annual Silverstone Classic is firmly established as the ultimate celebration of classic cars.
In 2016, for the first time, the hugely popular three-day festival is offering an exciting new opportunity for an organisation to share in the success as the glittering event’s official charity partner.
“Silverstone Classic provides a fantastic platform for a charity looking to build its profile and carry out some creative fundraising activities at a world-class event,” said Nick Wigley, CEO of organiser Goose Live Events. “We’re excited to be introducing this new opportunity for a charity partner to align with Silverstone Classic; it’s a chance for us to give something back.”
This year’s summer festival takes place over the weekend of 29-31 July and applications are invited from charitable organisations – notably those with a relevance to the event – that wish to be considered as the Silverstone Classic’s official event charity. Interested parties should contact firstname.lastname@example.org for further information and application details. The deadline for applications is 5pm on Monday 22nd February.
