On track with our fundraising at Castle Combe!

Well we certainly had some ‘fun with a purpose’ at Castle Combe recently at our charity track day!
A big thank you to Architecture Verte (www.verte.co.uk) for sponsoring the day, the drivers and everyone at Castle Combe Circuit (www.castlecombecircuit.co.uk) and of course Mr. Christopher Darwin. The day was extremely successful and over £5,000 was raised to be split between us and Combat Stress.  We also had some great rides in some (very fast!) lovely cars.
Take a look at more pictures from the day on our Facebook page at: http://www.facebook.com/media/set/?set=a.10150514858363182.376458.108214858181&type=3&l=bf637b99e1
