A quality array of Scottish rising stars of Motorsport, current stars and racing legends assembled in Leven Specialist Cars Edinburgh showroom for an “Evening with the Stars” all in aid of Children with Cancer UK.
Almost £4000 was raised as the assembled 200 guests were entertained and amused by all the racing stories and anecdotes of the racers from the car and bike world as well as the rally world. Topping the bill were John Cleland, twice BTCC champion, Jimmy McRae, multiple rally champion and Gordon Shedden, three time BTCC champion. Within the Leven Specialist Cars showroom filled with sports and supercar exotica, the star car was the 2019 Honda Civic BTCC car of Cobra Sport AMD with Autoaid /RCIB Insurance Racing Rory Butcher who has high hopes for the championship this year.
Organised by Kwik Fit and Knockhill, this event will be supporting Kwik Fit’s recently announced partnership with leading national children’s cancer charity – Children with Cancer UK. The partnership, which will run throughout 2019, has a fundraising target of £1 million, with the objective of helping to fund new family accommodation at Royal Manchester Children’s Hospital to keep families together whilst children from across the UK receive cancer treatment. With Kwik Fit’s title sponsorship of the British Touring Car Championship, it was a perfect fit to combine resources and contacts to host an evening for such a worthwhile charity.
