The Supercar Event 2022

The Supercar Event announcement

Published on: 16/02/23



After carrying out analysis of the Supercar event, The Children’s Trust have taken the difficult decision to stop holding the event. It continues to be a challenging time for The Children’s Trust. Like many similar organisations we have seen significant increases in our costs, driven by inflationary pressures and other economic factors.

Against this backdrop, we have paused to evaluate the merits of all our fundraising activity. The decision to continue with any historical activity needs to be taken with careful consideration of the money that can be raised, versus the associated costs.

The costs associated with holding the event, for both The Children’s Trust and our wonderful drivers, have significantly increased over the years. Ultimately this means the event is no longer financially viable and is unable to contribute effectively towards the work we do supporting children and young people with brain injury. 

We would like to take this opportunity to thank everyone who has been involved in making the Supercar event a success over the years and for their part in helping to raise over £850k for The Children’s Trust.  From our committee, our drivers, our volunteers through to the visitors who’ve joined us at one (or even more) Supercar Events, our sincere thanks go to you. We couldn’t have achieved any of this without you.
