On Friday 25 September, Advanced MP3 Players held their annual Charity Track Day in conjunction with the Scottish Elise Forum and sponsors Murray Lotus. This year the event was in aid of The British Heart Foundation. The day started with some fast paced laps around the track and ended in with evening entertainment at the Boroughmuir Rugby Club for a BBQ, raffle and auction.
The ominous cloud which stubbornly hung over Knockhill for the afternoon wasn’t enough to dampen the spirits of the drivers or their passengers. The great atmosphere was evident both on and off the track with awards being won for Most Improved Driver and the Marshalls Award for Best Driver.
Some fast and some entertaining laps were made that set the pace for the night ahead which raised in the region of £20 000.
Barbara Osborne, Head of Volunteer Fundraising at British Heart Foundation Scotland, said:
“We’re able to carry on saving lives in Scotland thanks to the support of companies like Advanced MP3 Players. Their fundraising is vital to help us continue our work to beat heart disease, Scotland’s biggest single killer.”
Malcolm Donohoe, Digital Audio Distribution:
“I’m delighted with how the Murray Lotus and Advanced MP3 Players Charity Trackday went – everyone had a great time on track and the auction and raffle raised more than we dared hope! My thanks really go out to everyone who helped make the day what it was – all the sponsors, all the contributors of auction and raffle prizes and most of all, the attendees who spent their hard earned money on having fun for a superb cause in memory of my Dad and in support of The British Heart Foundation Scotland.”
Overall the charity day was enjoyed by all who participated with some walking off with seriously impressive raffle prizes.
