Sir Frank Williams will present £20,000 to a range of charities on behalf of the Women’s Motor Racing Associates Club (WMRAC), affectionately known as the Doghouse Owners’ Club.
Williams, founder and team principal of Williams F1, has been a loyal supporter of the Doghouse Club, which celebrated its 50th anniversary in 2012, since the beginning will present cheques to representatives of Action Medical Research, Headway Northampton, Breakthrough Breast Cancer, the Warwickshire & Northants Air Ambulance Service and the Springfield Youth Club.
The money was raised last October at a Grand Charity Ball, held at the Silverstone Wing as part of the Doghouse Club’s 50th anniversary celebrations. The event was attended by approximately 250 motor racing personalities.
“We are absolutely delighted that Sir Frank has accepted our invitation to present the cheques.” said WMRAC Chariman Mrs Leonora Hill “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 be made in the British Racing Drivers’ Club headquarters at Silverstone on Thursday 21st March.
