Worthy Causes12.03.14 Impressive donations for great charities.
Last month the British Autograss Series donated an incredible £2700 to charity as a result of the fundraising at last year's awards ceremony, splitting the money between the Anthony Nolan Trust and the Teenage Cancer Trust.
Both charities are pertinent to the lives of members of the Autograss Community, and to have been able to give £1350 to each charity is a great achievement.
In addition to this figure, the ‘Eyy We Crazy’ organisation - set up by class one lady racers Fiona and Carys Thomas - were able to add a further £994.75 to the amount donated by the BAS as a result of their own fundraising throughout the year at Autograss events, at the Hillbilly Sprint hillclimb event, and from the sale of their branded items of clothing, bringing the total for the T.C.T to £2344.75. The Thomas sisters worked incredibly hard throughout last year to promote the Eyy We Crazy name, and deserve huge credit for a great outcome.
