Young racing enthusiasts from Lickey Hills Primary School are in pole position having secured a sponsorship deal from Charles Church South Midlands.

The house builder provided a welcome boost to the school’s eagerly anticipated mini grand prix which took place at the school’s Summer Fete on Saturday 15th June.  The sponsorship money funded the construction of the specially designed race track boundaries and pit lane to enhance the experience for the young racers.

It was all to race for with 20 young drivers  aged between five and eleven lined up in their home-made go-karts.  The winning driver, Jack Wilkes age 5, received a fantastic tour of the Prodrive Heritage Racing Centre and MINI World Rally Championship & Aston Martin Racing Team workshops in Banbury.

Peter Dancer, mini grand prix organiser, confirmed: “We are delighted with the wonderful support from Charles Church, their generosity has helped make this year’s race truly memorable and better than ever for all the Lickey Hills Primary School children and their families.”

Alison Reading, sales director at Charles Church South Midlands, said: “It has always been important for us to support the community in which our developments are located.

“With a development just a couple of miles away, on Parsonage Drive, Cofton Hackett we are more than happy to offer our support to the budding young drivers.  I hope they really enjoyed the event.”

The Bilberry Grange development, welcomes house hunters to visit its superb new showhome and marketing suite, due to open on 22nd June, on Parsonage Drive.  The development will feature a collection of 62 new detached executive homes.  House hunters can benefit from a selection of incentives such as Help to Buy and Home Change, NewBuy and the Charles Church Part Exchange scheme.
