The Richard Burns Foundation will be the official beneficiary of donations and charitable contributions at the forthcoming Goodwood Revival event.
Funds raised will form the backbone of the charity's mission to launch its first 'Brain Bus', a specialist mobile neurological facility that will provide much-needed walk-in services at hospitals. The Brain Bus will provide pre- and post-diagnosis support for a wide range of neurological conditions from head injury to illness in association with the Brain & Spine Foundation.
RBF has managed Goodwood's motorsport charitable collections with its army of volunteers and provided treasury & administration, most recently collecting over £45,000 of donations on behalf of the Kent Surrey Sussex Air Ambulance at this summer's Festival of Speed.
At the Revival, the Foundation itself will be the primary recipient of donations generously made by the event sponsor, Rolex, and has also received wide-ranging support from many other companies and individuals, including Automobili Lamborghini, Aston Martin and Scalextric.
The RBF stand at the event will be graced by the 1964 Monte Carlo Rally-winning Paddy Hopkirk Mini, kindly provided by Mini Sport.
