Motorsport Tickets Partners with Three New Charities: Keep Fighting Foundation, Mission Motorsport and Halow Project
Motorsport Tickets announces today that it has broadened its charity outreach programme, with the arrival of three new exciting charities, which aims to raise £40,000 over 5 years.
Building from Motorsport Ticket’s first charity partner, Sir Jackie Stewart’s charity, Race Against Dementia, today’s announcement sees the dedicated motorsport ticket provider welcome the arrival of Michael Schumacher’s Keep Fighting Foundation, Mission Motorsport and halow project.
Customers can learn more about the charities and donate money at the booking stage of the purchasing journey, a website function that was added in November 2020 as part of a renewed focus to support charities associated with the motorsport community.
Richard Gibson-Venner, Marketing Director said: “The intention when we launched the donation widget as part of our revitalised charity offering was to add a seamless addition to our checkout process. We wanted to make it quick and simple for our customer base to support the work being done, and to aid the collection of much needed funds to ensure our chosen charities could continue the great work they do. We’ve had a great response from customers to Race Against Dementia, and we’re excited to now move to the next stage by expanding choice for customers and giving exposure to a new set of diverse charities.”
More information about each charity can be found here:
The Keep Fighting Foundation is a non-profit initiative that is celebrating the attitudes to “Keep Fighting” and “Never Give Up” which are directly inspired by Michael Schumacher. The Foundation, registered in Germany, operates globally and continues Michael’s charitable work in areas he always had focus including road safety and awareness, neuroscience, neurological research and innovation in respect to head protection.
Mission Motorsport, launched in 2012, was setup to help those affected by military operations, with the focus on rehabilitation through the inspirational and healing potential of sport. Bridging the gap between military service and careers as civilians, the charity has place more than 200 wounded, injured and sick service leaders and more than 2000 veterans into employment.
Halow project, which was founded by patron Damon Hill OBE, is all about providing opportunities and support for young adults with a learning disability. Developing creative opportunities and removing social barriers through a blend of activities. To date they have supported more than 170 people across Surrey, and in 2021 are broadening their scope across the south east.
