Motorsport ace backs hospice again!

Posted onPosted on 15th Mar

Mansfield motorsport ace Ryan Faulconbridge is backing the John Eastwood Hospice at Sutton for a second year.

Ryan, of Ryan Faulconbridge Racing, has just announced a donation of £250 to the hospice, his chosen 2020 charity.

Ryan, who carries the hospice logo on his car and race suit, said it was the perfect opportunity to raise money for a great cause whilst giving back to the local community.

The donation is a combination of Team #13 Memberships and 2020 sponsorship.

Ryan added: “I’m also pleased to announce the John Eastwood Hospice will again be my chosen charity for 2021.

“This year I hope to do significantly more at the hospice, attending various fundraisers, showing people my car and providing prizes.

“I’ll be running my Team #13 Membership again this year, so please get involved to support this amazing charity.”

Sharon Williams, hospice trust chief executive, said: “We are delighted that Ryan Faulconbridge Racing is supporting the hospice, and helping raise the profile of the John Eastwood Hospice through the national ITV coverage that he receives through racing in the MINI Challenge.

“We rely on fundraising and donations to enable us to support specialist palliative care services in the hospice and in the community.”

“We had significantly more planned in 2020 with Ryan, but unfortunately due to the ongoing pandemic this wasn’t possible. 

“We couldn’t be happier that Ryan has chosen to support the hospice once again in 2021. We hope towards the end of the year and as a level of normality resumes, we can welcome Ryan and his race car to the hospice at additional fundraising events.”

Ryan added: “I’m pleased to give a contribution to the hospice and provide them an exposure to a new demographic, which they previously wouldn’t have reached, through social media and live coverage on ITV4 throughout the year.

“Over the last year fundraising activities, which are so crucial for charities, have been almost impossible due to the pandemic. It’s great that I’ve been able to do my part in supporting such an important part of the local community.”
