Fancy helping Lewis Hamilton raise money for disadvantaged children at the Goodwood Festival of Speed next weekend – and getting free entry to the event while you do so?

If so, you need to quickly email your details to the address given here.

The Lewis Hamilton Foundation, which works to improve the lives and opportunities of children and young people suffering ill health or poverty in the UK, Europe or developing countries, is this year’s official event charity.

It will be working with The Richard Burns Foundation during the festival and that organisation has made its final call for volunteers to help out – for just a couple of hours a day or throughout the whole Festival weekend, as well as getting involved in a wide range of activities.

In return volunteers will receive free passes to the event plus the chance to win an exclusive passenger ride on the Goodwood Rally stage.

Last year the Richard Burns Foundation raised £50,000 at the Festival for youngsters suffering from life-threatening illnesses. It is hoping to top that figure at this year’s event – and you can help ensure it succeeds.

Following the Festival of Speed, the Lewis Hamilton Foundation will be making a donation to Keech Cottage Children’s Hospice in Luton, close to Hamilton’s home town of Stevenage, and to Chestnut Tree House which is based close to Goodwood in Sussex.

Keech Cottage Children’s Hospice provides specialist palliative care for children diagnosed with a life-limiting condition and their families across Bedfordshire, Hertfordshire and Milton Keynes, whilst Chestnut Tree House cares for children and young adults from 0-19 years of age with progressive life-limiting and life-threatening illnesses from all over Sussex.
