More than 60 supercars revved up at Hamilton Park Racecourse last weekend (Sunday 4th September) as the venue hosted a special children’s charity fun-day.
The Les Hoey MBE DreamMaker Foundation, which aims to make the dreams of children with life-threatening illnesses come true, staged its annual Dream Car Day with 250 guests, including sport stars and celebrities turning out to help raise funds for its work.
Ranger’s striker Kenny Miller, Motherwell’s Louis Moult and cast members from TV’s Still Game threw their weight behind the cause, while youngsters enjoyed a spin in cars including Rolls Royces, Porches and Ferraris.
The Racecourse’s grounds were transformed in to a mini fun fair, with bouncy castles and rides, while guests enjoyed a buffet lunch in the venue’s Duke Suite and a fundraising raffle.
Georgia McKay, Sales Manager at Sodexo Prestige Venues & Events for Hamilton Park Racecourse, said: “The Foundation does amazing work and it was a pleasure to be involved in such a fun and heart-warming event. We organise and cater for a number of different events, from birthday parties and weddings, to meetings and conferences and it is always a thrill to see the variety of ways in which the Racecourse can be used.
“Sunday’s event with its super-cars, fun fair and fantastic guests, made for a really special day, which we were proud to play a part in.”
Charity champion Les Hoey, MBE, who set up the charity more than two decades ago after his daughter became ill, said: “We would like to thank Hamilton Park Racecourse and all of the staff for their support in making our DreamMaker Super Car day the huge success it was.
“The location and amenities were perfect and we hope to hold many more events there in the future.”
