Get ready for Crash for Cancer II

Racing fans of all age will be in for a treat when the second Crash for Cancer meeting is held on August Bank Holiday Monday to raise money for The Queen Elizabeth Hospital.

Taxi driver Mick Gedney and friends raised a smashing £8,300 for the Hospital’s Macmillan Cancer Care and Treatment Centre during last year’s popular event, which attracted 5,000 people.

This year’s event is promising to be bigger when Crash for Cancer II takes place at the Adrian Flux Norfolk Arena on Monday, August 28, from 1pm.

Attractions at this year’s event include Van Banger Racing, Robin Reliant Racing and Lady Bangers.

Youngsters will also have the opportunity to write on a car, which will be racing at a meeting in September.

Mr Gedney organised last year’s event to say thank you to staff at the unit for their treatment of his late father, Colin.

He said: “Last year’s event was really successful that we had to run it again.

“This is a fun meeting and we would encourage as many families as possible to come along on the day to support this terrific cause.”

There is still time for drivers who would like to enter the race and there are also drivers still looking for sponsorship from local businesses.

Anyone wishing to support the fundraising should contact Mr Gedney by calling 07766 228504 or email
