Williams opens doors for charity

Williams is to give an exclusive 'behind the scenes' insight as part of a charity fundraiser for Save the Children.
The Williams F1 team is giving exclusive access to its Grand Prix Collection at a one-off charity event in aid of Save the Children.

The team will be opening their doors of its Grove facility on Saturday 28 September to give guests an up-close view of some of the most technologically advanced machines on the planet. The black tie event will also include a presentation from Kirsty Andrew of Williams Advanced Engineering, plus the opportunity to take the wheel and experience the thrill of an F1 simulator.

Later in the evening, BBC celebrity Jonty Hearnden will be overseeing the auction of a host of valuable lots, including tickets for Williams race days, while a raffle will offer a number of exclusive prizes, including the chance for avid F1 followers to take home a piece of the action.

"We are delighted to play host to what promises to be an exciting evening where members of the public can get a taste of Williams' F1 history and raise money for a very worthy cause that we have a history of supporting,” Andrew, head of commercial operations at Williams Advanced Engineering, confirmed, “I will be talking to guests about innovation within F1 and the way Williams is now looking beyond the race track to introduce its technologies into a growing range of everyday applications."

Tickets are priced at £95, with all proceeds going to support Save the Children's work in helping the world's poorest children. The price includes a three-course gourmet meal as well as a sparkling wine reception at Williams headquarters in Oxfordshire.
