Sir Frank Williams to present £20,000 to charities for the Doghouse

"We are absolutely delighted that Sir Frank has accepted our invitation to present the cheques. It will be a great honour for the representatives of the charities and our newer members to meet him..." – WMRAC chairman, Leonora Hill

Sir Frank Williams, founder and team principal of the Williams F1 team, will head to Silverstone next month as a special guest of the Women's Motor Racing Associates Club (WMRAC), known affectionately as the Doghouse Owners' Club.

Founded in February 1962 by a number of Grand Prix Constructors' and Drivers' wives, the 50th anniversary of the 'Doghouse' was celebrated during 2012 and culminated in a Grand Charity Ball, held at the Silverstone Wing last October. The glittering event was attended by approximately 250 motor racing personalities, at which Doghouse Club members and their guests raised £20,000 to benefit the four charities chosen by the club.

Sir Frank, who has been a loyal supporter of the Doghouse Club from the very beginning, will present cheques to representatives of the charities - namely Action Medical Research, Headway Northampton, Breakthrough Breast Cancer and the Warwickshire & Northants Air Ambulance Service. A donation will also be made to The Springfield Youth Club.

WMRAC chairman Leonora Hill said: "We are absolutely delighted that Sir Frank has accepted our invitation to present the cheques. It will be a great honour for the representatives of the charities and our newer members to meet him. It will be a very special occasion for everyone."

The presentations will take place in the prestigious British Racing Drivers' Club headquarters at Silverstone Circuit, on Thursday 21 March, at 12 noon.

"I am pleased to report that the success of the events in 2012 ensures that equally ambitious and exciting events are being planned all over the country in the future for the Doghouse Owners' Club," added Leonora.
